Blessed he who believes it and is not offended at it! Whoever reads it,
full of faith in his heart, shall receive much blessing.
Amen. I, The Lord, say this.
AMEN. AMEN. AMEN. (3 days in the Temple, final)
Now you have an idea about the life in the great spirit-world, which I wanted to give you on the occasion of this event from the Gospel. It is most important that you not only know what you see but little by little also learn to understand what there is beyond the visible world, has given the latter its character and represents the by far greater and more important part of My Kingdom.
Spirit am I, spirits are you, and even matter will once become spiritual. To recognize in this light the great cycle in all its levels, to survey it and establish your own position in it, is the task which - was given you. To help you achieve this, I employ every possible means to make the inevitable road easier and shorter for you in order that you may overcome already here the greater and most difficult part, so that over there you will have to conquer only fewer and easier things. (The Lord’s Sermons, chap. 15)
When also you - and likewise you, My scribe - will no longer be earthly witnesses of this epoch, also you and you all will in the Beyond participate in the general joy, where of an entire human gender, held together only by the bond of love, one person helpingly gives a lift to the other, where neither lord nor servant, but the bond of brotherly and sisterly love has chained together not only individuals, but whole nations, where territorial boundaries have disappeared, and both rulers and popes no longer work towards making dutiable the physical and spiritual forces.
Also you, My scribe, will only there completely come to know for what purpose were your efforts in My service, for what purpose your own sufferings and those of yours served to let this seed of love, which I once planted and which in some individual cases off and on bore fruit, but as a whole never could breakthrough, now renewed through your hand, has become the Newest Gospel, which in other words and written in a style different from the one used at and after the time of My apostles, only now and in this form is more readily accessible and comprehensible.
Now that scientific education illumines manifoldly the hearts and heads of men, it is easier also on My side to point to nature surrounding you, and to your own inner self; for, though not all, at least some are then able to recognize in the wonders of nature My Voice, to feel and comprehend It.
Guided by a rational religion even in the most secret folds of their hearts, they will now more readily listen to the prompting of other spirits, even to My Voice and trust It. Thus the communication with the world of spirits has become a binding substance, which first of all bans death with all its horrors to this world and secondly presents to you the otherworld as it really is, not as most people have imagined it.
All this must and will contribute to the fact that at the beginning of the next century (XX) a great spiritual progress will open up, not suddenly as in all of creation, but making possible a gentle, slow going over from one stage to another.
I admitted all this in order that beside the free will of men, beside the most wrong means, which are applied by them to gain their aims, not their purposes shall be fulfilled, but Mine, which go further and have a higher far-reaching intention, because they are calculated not for the short life-time of man, but for an eternity, where other purposes also require other means.
