Letter from Heaven. Jesus' Sabbath letter & King
Agbarrus letter & Savior's Reply. US, 1896.
[EXPLANATION WITH PUBLISHED LETTER]
Found eighteen miles form Iconium, sixty-five years after our blessed Savior's
crucifixion, transmitted from the Holy City by a converted Jew, faithfully
translated from the original Hebrew copy, now in the Lady Cuba's family of
Mesopotamia. This Letter was written by Jesus Christ and found under a great
stone, both round and large, at the foot of the cross, near a village named
Mesopotamia. Upon the stone was written and engraven, "Blessed is he that
shall turn me over.
All the people that saw it prayed God earnestly and desired he would make
known to them the meaning of this writing that they might not try in vain
to turn it over. In the meantime there came a child about 6 or 7 years old
and turned it over without help, to the admiration of all the people that
stood by, and under this stone was found a letter written by Jesus Christ,
which was carried to the City of Iconium and published by a person belonging
to the Cuba family. On the letter was written the Commandments of Jesus Christ,
signed by the Angel Gabriel, ninety-eight years after our Savior's birth,
to which is added King Abgarus' letter to our Savior and our Savior's answer;
also his miracles.
[HERE IS THE ALLEGED LETTER]
Whosoever worketh on the Sabbath day shall be cursed. I command you to go
to church and keep the Lord's day holy, without doing any manner of work.
You shall not idly spend your time in bedecking yourself with superfluities
of costly apparel and vain dresses, for I have ordained it a day of rest.
I will have that day kept holy that your sins may be forgiven you.
You shall not break my commandments, but observe and keep them, written
with my own hand. Write them in your hearts and steadfastly observe this
was written with my own hand and spoken by my own mouth.
You shall not only go to church yourselves, but also your man-servant and
observe my words and learn my commandments. You shall finish your labor every
Saturday evening by 6 o'clock, at which time the preparation for the Sabbath
I advise you to fast five Fridays in the year, beginning with Good Friday,
and continue for four Fridays immediately following in remembrance of the
five Bloody Wounds I received for all mankind.
You shall diligently and peaceably labor in your respective vocations wherein
it hath please GOD to call you. You shall love one another with brotherly
love and cause them that are not baptized to come to church and hear the holy
sacraments - namely: Baptism and the Lord's Supper - and be made members thereof.
In so doing I will give you long life and many blessings, and your land shall
replenish and bring forth abundance.
I will give you many blessings and comfort you in the greatest temptations;
and surely he that doth to the contrary shall be cursed and unprofitable.
I will also send hardness of heart upon them till I have destroyed them but
especially upon hardened and impenitent unbelievers. He that hath given to
the poor shall not be unprofitable.
Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day, for the seventh I have taken to rest
He that hath a copy of this letter, written with my own hand and spoken
with my own mouth, and keep it without publishing it to others, shall not
prosper, but he that publisheth it to others shall be blessed of me, and
though his sins be in numbers as the stars in the sky and he believes in
this he shall be pardoned; and if he believe not this writing and my commandments
I will send my plagues upon him and consume both him and his children and
his cattle; and whoever shall have a copy of this letter and keep it in their
houses nothing shall hurt them, neither pestilence or lightning or thunder
shall do them any hurt. If woman be with child and labor and a copy
of this letter be about her and she firmly puts her trust in me she shall
safely be delivered of her birth.
You shall have no news of me, by the Holy Spirit, until the day of judgment.
All goodness and prosperity shall be in the house where a copy of this letter
shall be found.

a Genuine Writing of the Savior, and Some Say They Are Healed Of Illness by
Virtue of Possessing a Copy. The article also presented the "The Kings
