The Word of the Father was received trough O.R.L. on May 30, 1892, and printed as:
Foreword to ‘The Twelve Hours’ of the 1895 German edition.
Presently you still live in the time of the living flow of My Spirit in your sphere; the time has not yet come, during which My servant will have heard and written down from Me, would be subjected to an after-examination, as to what is true, untrue, and what is only coloured. As has been told you already, when you offered yourself, to remove the by you-noticed and possibly other mistakes in the Great Gospel [of John], [I repeat here:] take your hands off from such small appearances.
First of all, such mistakes are minor and pertain not to spiritual, but only material things,- secondly, I directly allow such mistakes, namely here and there for long segments, that they become coloured through the agitated spirit of the writer, so that no faith-in-the-letter forms among you!
Be free spirits! Seek! Moreover, practice on yourself—to become free—through the searching in My writings [and their practice].
Do not look upon the mistakes, but upon the remaining hidden inner deep meaning, of which there remains still endlessly much hidden in you, as much as you like to search. –
The Twelve Hours [no. 22] are almost, for all intents and purposes, coloured through the agitation of the writer. Only at the end does My calmness fully break through.
Do not change anything in it. Nothing is “scandalous” to him, who clings close to God, for He understands everything earthly! –
