Meditation for Lent
(through Jakob Lorber)
Only, let us leave it alone! It will still happen, even more so since already, for some time, the necessary provisions, in regard to the spiritual, have been met and, finally allows light to shine where until now darkness ruled.
Also you, My children, remember - with the approaching of these days of remembrance - the words which I have given in the earlier years. And thus some long for new words, while he yet should await, in himself, a better result and should enter into himself in order to see in how far he has followed his task according to the earlier words. – Since I, however, am the Father of Love and know very well with what weak children I have to deal with, thus I will let you write down your “General Confession” instead of you telling it to Me. For thus, perhaps, some would leave out his main faults while I am not inclined to overlook even one in silence.
See, the coming week reminds you of two things: firstly, of the example of My humility, meekness and an all-embracing, all forgiving love; secondly, of the great sacrifice which I, as God in human form, brought to you, in order not to let you sink down to animals of lust, but to save your spiritual worth, so that you, corresponding to My likeness, could be that for which I have created you! What concerns the first, the first question to be answered is: How and in how far have you followed My example, how have you maintained your love of neighbour towards your fellow men, how have you practiced your meekness, forgiveness and love.
Therefore, let everyone endeavor to obtain it forthwith, for I give it to whoever wishes to have it.
"Thus spoke the Lord to me and within me for everyone, and that is true, certain and faithful:
1. My grace is a rich treasure. Whoever receives it will not ever be in want of anything, temporally and eternally. Therefore, let everyone endeavor to obtain it forthwith, for I give it to whoever wishes to have it.
2. For behold, if you want forgiveness of your sins, they are forgiven you provided you do true penance through Jesus who is My living Word and the love within Me. The gates of heaven are open to you, and if you want it you can enter and behold the face of your holy Father who is I, the eternal God Jehovah.
3. You can do that with the help of the living Word, which is Jesus Christ or eternal Love and Wisdom within Me from which keeps flowing all that is good and true. Love has been given to you from the very beginning, for it is the actual life within you, as is the might in My creatures, which, since it does not possess freedom though it also issues from My love, is not love itself, but only the effect of love. This is as such without life and, therefore, whatever goes forth from the might is dead matter with only an apparent life, which is in reality death.
Look upward, you fool, and gaze at the starry sky! Who has ever counted the infinite number of suns and all the earths of which I have created thousands for every sun?
And I, Who am truthful and reliable in every one of My words, am telling you: For a penny I shall give away an earth and for a drink of fresh water a sun. Truly I tell you: The smallest service of neighborly love shall be rewarded richly and abundantly.
2. You ask Me whether there are everywhere humans like here on the earth where you dwell. And I tell you: Yes, there are everywhere humans who are going forth from My bowels and who perceive Me according to the respective organ. Those who go forth from My bands and perceive Me according to My bands; those who go forth from My feet and perceive Me accordingly; those who go forth from My head and perceive Me according to My head; those who go forth from My hair and perceive Me according to My hair; those who go forth from My loins and perceive Me according to My loins; and altogether those who go forth from all the different parts of My bodily essence and perceive Me accordingly. Their life and happiness correspond to that particular part from which they have come forth. They are all My creatures whom I love, for I am love throughout and am the very love everywhere.
