Angels as God's servants
" Raphael said: “The Lord does not need our services, but we nevertheless serve Him in all love by serving you people according to His will, and by protecting you against the too strong persecutions of Hell.
 The more we have to do in the name of the Lord, on this Earth as well as the still numberless other earths in the endless space of creation, the happier and blissful we are. Do likewise, then you will become what I am and able to do what I can do.”
 On this, the captain said: “I already know what you are, but I still do not know what you can do.”
 The angel said: “What the Lord can do Himself, I can do. Although, out of myself I can do as little as you can do, but from the will of the Lord, which fills and forms my whole being, also I can do everything. Make you also the will of the Lord completely your own, then you also will be able to do what I can do.” (GGJ Book 23, 98)
Cherubim and Seraphim
received through Jakob Lorber on August 25th, 1844
Oh Lord! What possible distinction is there between Cherubim and Seraphim?
– The meaning and being of the Cherubim is the eternal outflow of the divine love and the seraphim is the outflow of the divine wisdom; that is the difference. For that reason one said before altars: He is glowing with love like a cherub and is wise like a seraph.
– Therefore, through the Cherubim the divine love and through the Seraphim the divine wisdom in their total fundamental heavenly causing is to be understood. (Heavenly Gifts, vol. 3)
Man, as God's complete image, must also have a perfect free
" He who has not yet created a sun, a moon, a habitable Earth, plants, animals and men, knows certainly not how all these creatures have to be guided, sustained and brought to their ultimate goal. I, however, know all this and have established an eternal order, without which nobody could achieve anything.
 Man, as My complete image, must also have a perfect free will by which he has to – as far as his spiritual part is concerned – transform and strengthen himself, and make himself free from My omnipotence, so that one day he may stand next to Me and live and act as a strong, free, independent and arbitrary being.
 Look, all creatures are subject to laws, which are established by Me. Also man, where his body is concerned. Only the soul and the spirit of man are not. That is, as far as his will and the freedom of learning and the realization of everything are concerned. The form and the structure of the soul in all its parts is of course also subject to laws which are established by Me, but only in such a way, that, precisely because of the free will in man, he can become either very noble and strong or very ignoble and weak.
(Lord to Cyrenius) "You are greatly concerned about it and I have, therefore, seen to it that what is is important has been recorded in your rolls. But any such record is of no more benefit to life than a dead road-sign is to the wanderer on the many roads and in the mazes of this world; but what can help everyone and give him wisdom, vigour and life, is written into every man's heart in a wholly indelible manner, so that this writing of the eternal law of life and its inward and outward relations is read aloud in man's heart whenever one of his actions is contrary to the divine order, admonishing the soul to return to the original, divine order.
If man follows this inner voice, he is instantly on the right road. However, if he does not heed it, but acts in accordance with the raging passion of his flesh, he will only have to blame himself, if he is swallowed up by the judgement taking place within him." (GGJ III, 193:13-14)
Raphael's description of the conscience and angel's influence upon man
" For behold, every human being has a spiritual organ within his heart which is always open and completely accesible to us, angels of God. This organ invariably represents the simple concepts of good - bad, true - untrue, right - wrong.
 If you do always what is good, true and right, we touch the positive and good part, and within you the gratifying feeling is aroused to have acted and spoken well and truly.
