Jesus' Crucifixion

In the  Padgett Messages  Jesus tells us of his displeasure that mankind places so much emphasis on his crucifixion rather than what was in his heart.

He tells us that it is his wish for mankind to take him off the cross and seek the Father's Divine Love and that it was this Divine Love that transformed his natural love nature into the divine love nature that is the essence of God's soul and for this love that he possessed and proclaimed to his followers as the reason for his crucifixion.

Today many Christians around the world are celebrating the event of Jesus life. 

There are many productions of re-enactment of this event. How is it that so many people on earth are so blind to Jesus ministry and  his  love for God that they continually seek to expose children to the brutality and violence that our beloved King and Master suffered?  

It is appalling that the preachers and ministers and priests of the Christian churches make such a big issue of and impose this event on the souls of little children. 

Children today have enough burdens to carry on their shoulders why do these people continue to persist in imposing more burdens with this kind of teaching when it is something that is not pleasing to Jesus. 

Jesus did not die as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind. For people to believe that God would make such a demand of one of his most beloved and devoted children show how ignorant mankind is of the majesty of the creator. People who continue to practice this kind of belief are actually believing in the old  ancient custom of human sacrifice for the sins of mankind.  How deplorable it is that mankind in general has not elevated their thinking beyond an ancient custom that is not pleasing in the sight of God. How can a man with love in his heart for his own son actually think that God would think less of his own beloved son by having him killed. If mankind would listen to their own heart and let God speak to them they would see the absurdity and insanity of practicing such a foolish teaching that only hinders people in their spiritual development and holds them back from becoming the kind of people that God seeks for us to become.

I am here, Jesus:
I am glad to be here tonight to write you on the various points that have come up in your discussions, and I will commence by stating that my knowledge of dematerializing my body was the result not of any psychic powers that I did possess at the time, but due to the soul knowledge which was in me with that sufficiency of the Divine Love which I had obtained through my prayers to the Father at the time.
The story of the crucifixion is one which has appealed mightily to many writers of this and of passed ages, and is the one phase of my mortal existence to which I would least refer; and yet it is a factor which must be considered as part of the life of Jesus, the Messiah, and so I will write a few facts about it.
In the first place, it was not in April that I was arrested and put to death, as has been written so often, but it occurred in March, and there are some indications of this in the New Testament, the first being that the day preceding my arrest I taught in the vicinity of the Temple and it thundered so that some of the people who were listening to my discourse thought that an Angel, or God, had spoken to me, so that the weather was cloudy and changeable at night. It was cold, for, as it is recorded in the New Testament, Peter had to warm his hands in the courtyard of the high priest, and the next day at the scene of the crucifixion it grew dark and cloudy, and there were many who thought that this darkness was an indication of God's anger at the deed.
Now, the fact is that God is Love, and His Divine Love was open to those who were responsible for my death, and He did not express anger because there is no anger in Him; and the storm that darkened that day over Jerusalem simply obeyed the natural order of a new-settled spring at the time.
I wish to say that the trial by the Sanhedrin was in accordance to a rudimentary but superficial degree with the Sadducean laws, but that in the state of that body at the time and its relationship to the ruling priests, they were willing to accept my death by unfair means through perjured witnesses in order to eliminate one whom they considered importunate and dangerous to the Hebrew religion and a source of potential danger to their harmony with the Roman authorities.
I also wish to state that my father, Joseph, was present at this unfair trial and watched me buffeted and condemned, and he was sick at heart at the treatment I received and at the confirmation of his worst fears. And his eyes were opened to the stagnant state of the Sanhedrin at the time, and he realized that what they considered religion was merely farce. And his eyes were opened to the enormous gulf between what was the religion as practiced by its most august body and what I proposed in its place, to not only restore its pristine authority and purity but to impart to it its culminating sublimity and grandeur. And, from this shame and humiliation which he suffered at seeing his first-born son condemned and executed as a criminal, was born the conviction of his son's innocence and the righteousness of his cause, and the truth of his mission.
And I should say, also, that while my body was torn and exhausted by the blows and brutalities of my execution, not once during that time did I lose faith in my Father nor in the truth of my mission; and the burning in my soul constantly told me that I could die only in the flesh and that I would retain my consciousness after my passing over. And this is true: for this same burning in my soul continued as I became a spirit and I looked upon the body which had been pierced. 

It is also true that the Roman Centurian who was officiating at the crucifixion was deeply convinced of my innocence and, while he did not say, as it is recorded in the New Testament, that I was the Son of God (because he did not understand that term), yet he did state that he believed in my innocence; and later, at the Pentecost, and with the preaching of my disciples, and being convinced that I was resurrected, he was converted to Christianity. And the same was true of the lancer, Coriginus, as he is called, who poked his lance into my heart to determine my death: he also became imbued with my teachings in the days that followed the Pentecost, and some others of the Roman soldiery were also affected.
The story of the crucifixion is otherwise substantially the same as recorded in the New Testament, but I never voiced any complaints or doubted that God was with me; and the words attributed to me, "Oh, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" I never uttered but were inserted by a copyist many years later to make my death accord with the words of the Psalmist to that effect. It is true that I was placed between two malefactors, but never did one seek to be converted nor did I tell him he would be in Paradise with me, for that was a boon I could not grant, for his place in the world of spirits depended upon his condition of soul.
With respect to the Doctor's friend, I should like to say that it is easier to contact the spirit world than is understood, for there are many spirits who abound ready and eager to make that contact; and the difficulty lies with mortals who live only for the material world and believe that the spirit world is simply a fable and not to be believed; and it is this that prevents rapport. And the type of rapport depends upon the condition of the mortal's spiritual development.
So the Doctor's friend must not think that because we have no tangible evidence of his contacting the spirits is a reason for disbelieving or not having faith in his contacting them, for the fact is that he does, and his efforts to aid them has their effects depending upon the wills of the spirits he communes with and their desire to improve their lot. And I should like to state that this also applies to the Doctor; for although he has been told that before, I think it would encourage him to continue if he hears this confirmation directly from your friend and elder brother, who is
