Other men not begotten through a human father
“ […] Everyone who carries the flesh has received his body from a mother’s womb; only the first human couple received theirs by the will and hand of God. And so this My body is also out of a human mother although not begotten through a human father in the ordinary way, but solely through the almighty will of the Spirit of God. This is quite possible in the case of very pure and devout people and used to happen frequently in the olden days to quite unspoiled, simple and very devout people; and it happens even in these days every now and then.
 It stands to reason that humans who are begotten in this purely spiritual way must be more spiritual than the ordinary kind, for children of completely healthy parents will be strong and healthy themselves, whereas the children of weak and unfit parents will usually be weak and sick too. (GGJ VI, chap. 90)
“Abraham had a good descendant in a spiritual way, without any fleshly coitus, John was conceived the same way and Mary too; such procreations took place often in ancient times and some prophets were conceived this way. This kind of procreation is the right one, of course, and still takes place, often without the parents‟ knowledge; but this kind is the heavenly kind and if of no use for the world, but must take place for the possible participation in redemption. What remains to be done other than to leave the world its fleshly way of procreation, and thus let the old sin persist together with complete redemption, so that every captive natural soul has either way an unhindered path into the kingdom of grace and mercy!” (Gifts of Heaven 3_47.05.29:01-01)
The old religions - forerunners of the teaching of Jesus Christ
" But the question remains: why can we find the same basic features in the old religions?
 If it were not so, it would be surprising to the one who has understood these revelations, for if these old religions are forerunners of the teaching of the Son of man and Son of God, then they also must contain the main features of the latter. They cannot contain things that are different. That the lives of individual teachers who arose show similarities with Mine is based on the same fact.
 If the old Egyptian religion would be entirely known it its oldest basic features – these only survived hazily in the present time by the later cult of the gods – then one would say: the Christian religion is derived from the old Egyptian religion. This is how strongly they look alike, especially if one would know the original meaning of the characteristics of Osiris, Isis and Horus.
 However, to what extent did I succeed to break the tree of sins and not to only break through the roof of leaves?
 In the first place everyone should clearly understand what it means “to sin”.
 Many will soon be ready with the answer and say: sin is everything that is against God’s will. Although this is true, but what is God’s will actually, and how can man recognize it if he does not even believe in God and even less recognize His will?
 But then we can know from the viewpoint of human life: No one can sin against God unless He came to know Him. No one can be offended when a blind man claims that there is no light only because he does not see it, and even less will God pressure the one
who does not know Him because of his foolishness. However, a blind man can offend his neighbor or someone else when he resists him in one way or another – even though he does not see him but he can hear and feel him and he is able to receive and enjoy his direct good deeds. He can sin against his love, for despite his blindness he cannot deny that the person exists.
 This is also the case with someone who is spiritually blind. He certainly can sin against the commandment of neighborly love, even if he does not know God. Neighborly love is the way to the love for God – this has often been explained.
 Now since the Man Jesus fulfilled this commandment down to the smallest detail – and this since His youth – the love of God grew in Him so that He finally was absorbed by it. Sin had no power over Him for he strove to go from the initial visible way of neighborly love, which was apparent through outer works, to the inner invisible way in the love of God.
 God gave a commandment to Adam: unconditional obedience. He despised it and fell. Out of love for God the Man Jesus gave to Himself this commandment: not to do anything without the will of the Father, and through this He became the shining example to follow. So He achieved in Himself the level that Adam did not achieve, and in this manner He reconciled in Himself the deity who was hurt in His holiness by the commandment that was violated.
 Wisdom gave the commandment. The will, the power, wanted its fulfillment. The love found the way in the Man Jesus to fulfill the conditions that were necessary to bring back the former state of happiness for all created beings. Salvation lies in the fact that this
way, which leads directly to God, is now opened and that this way was fulfilled by the Son of man Jesus who became by that the Son of God. The death of Jesus is the sealing of the unconditional obedience. Even though it was not necessary, but since mankind,
with its unlimited free will and by the influence of Lucifer demanded it, Jesus submitted Himself also to this demand and died physically.
 Falling from one sin into another brings about an ever greater hardness of the soul. One speaks of stony hearts to describe this condition. How far this can go cannot be overseen. Matter, the outer lust, keeps growing, and naturally the awareness of any
spirit-soul essential core becomes lost more and more. This hardening leads finally to an animal condition which only knows preservation and procreation without inner spiritual freedom. Only a pure spiritual teaching can bring salvation from such condition and will lead to a moral awareness of human dignity, and this teaching was given briefly, could not be misunderstood and in the greatest possible clearness. Acting upon it will break the chains of matter, will release the bonds of worldly lust for pleasure and will finally lead the material wishes and desires to a condition of pure awareness as knowing evil, but no more doing evil because the ego will melt down more and more while this ego (selfishness) would otherwise outgrow more and more. The more the ego will fade
away, the more the shackles of matter will loosen (soften) and they will finally be no more felt as shackles.
 So the tree of sin was and could only be broken by Jesus because in Himself He enclosed the Spirit of God who already gave the commandment to Adam, but he did not obey.
 Now one will say: ‘But where is the proof that this is so, and that the former teachers did not accomplish the same? For what has been said here is hidden to the human eye. It is an inner process about which no one besides Jesus can report while the outer process, the appearance of a great teacher, his life, his good teachings and also his death, happened many times. Now how can the tree of sins be really broken by Jesus, and over there they only broke through the roof of leaves? This can hardly be noticed from the outer result in the world, because sin is flourishing in the present time as never before, and mankind cannot recognize the signs, except the outer ones.’
 Yes, this seems to be so at first sight but when we look closer, it does not.
 All those who will go the inner way will soon realize what it is truly like. The outer appearance means nothing at all, for it is a hollow note. The one who does not want to go the inner way cannot be convinced or given an image of that way, just as little as it is impossible to give a blind person a notion of colors. Here the result decides. The way is there. Walk on it, and then make your conclusion.
 No one can come to the Father without Me, and without faith in Jesus no sage has ever felt the almighty Being of God as the very first Source of all love who can make Himself personal. Only in Jesus, the impersonal becomes personal, and the union of these
two in the human form makes it possible for the creature to draw near to the Creator, the rising of matter in the spirit, the leading back of the sequence of sins that were committed upwards beyond the wall that separates matter and spirit, as points that otherwise cannot touch each other – and the bridge is the life of Jesus.
 Now the question arises: before the death of the Son of man, how far actually could the deceased souls go?
 They could of course come to insight and also to inner bliss, this according to how they followed the teaching of the many earlier teachers, but they could of course not reach the point of viewing the personified deity.
 This happened in history for the first time when the body of Jesus was lying in the grave. There lay the purely earthly body, while the soul with the indwelling Spirit of God passed over and there showed Himself to all as the One who He is and was.
 This can only be mentioned here. However, later will also be revealed what exactly happened.
 With this manifestation in the spirit world, began the building and populating of the New Jerusalem as the city of God and the inhabitants, and it will continue to exist forever." (GGJ Book 25, chap. 99)
