Mildred Smith was the author of this book which can be used as a devotional. In 1976, she received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. It wasn't too many months after she received the Holy Spirit that she began to receive letters from the Holy Spirit.
She would sit down with a paper and pencil and thoughts would form in her mind. She would write them down, word by word as they came to her. These were thoughts that she did not form by herself. They were on themes about which she had little or no information. They were scripturally based, although she did not know it at the time. Some of the ideas seemed strange to her. They certainly were not her ideas.
One of the most significant things about these letters was the loving way in which they were written. If the letter dealt with sin, it was presented in a manner that gave anyone reading the letter an insight regarding why sin offends God. The letter leads the reader to seek change from that sin, drawing that person closer to Jesus. The love of Jesus is evident in these letters. As people read them they are aware of the depth of love that Jesus has for all mankind! Jesus does not condemn anyone! He calls and draws them into a daily walk with Him.
Whether a person reads only one letter a day or reads the book in its entirety all at once, his or her life will be changed. It is a labor of love sent to the people of Earth daily, except Sundays or during the times when earthly matters took precedence in Mildred’s life. Mildred was never in a trance. She could answer anyone who spoke to her and then she could then continue with the letter. She could write at any time that she chose. The Holy Spirit was there whenever she asked Him to talk to her.
These letters are just a small sample of the way that the Holy Spirit communicated with her. They are on many diverse subjects. All are related to God and the way that man relates to God. They bring wisdom and understanding about God to a world that has shut God out of daily life. Sharon Smith, Ph.D., who was her oldest child and only daughter, was assigned as a Script Bearer early in Mildred's writing. Sharon’s assignment has now started. She and her husband, Joel M. Kestenbaum, Ph.D. are the compilers and editors. They, as did many others including Mildred’s husband, Burl C. Smith, their three sons, Steve, Jeff and Phil, and their spouses and children, watched as Mildred would sit and write without any preparation or hesitation. The words were always amazing, often prophetic and always from God.
The letters are like a spiritual bath of goodness. They clean one's soul as one reads the thoughts that have been sent to purify one's soul. God would speak face to face with the people. He is love, see Him as such!
