37] However, you have heard that the rags of the prodigal son were dispersed by the winds like chaff, and the remaining rags were taken off him and burned. Do you know what these rags mean?
38] Understand, it is nothing other than the former withered cosmic human being on our tablet. For through the salvation of each individual person is the Noble167, out of Me emanating [excellent spirit] or My prodigal son restored. The rags or the actual prime-evil will be scattered into the fire, from which it actually came out of. However, it is this fire—the one in the Divinity—out of which all things have their material existence.
39] Consequently, whoever depends on the world and sticks onto matter, sticks on the rags of the prodigal son; however, all matter shows you already its big similarity to the fire168; the same are also the rags on the loins of the prodigal son.
40] This is how it will happen! So that God becomes a free God again, in which no more matter seethes, so must the fire or the related wraths once again return from where it—as that what it is—came from. And it will happen, as if you have some kind of hardening on your body and you cover it with a hot poultice, so this hardening becomes soft again. So too will My eternal fire seize this prime-evil hardening in its all-ness or entirety, in order to thereby again assimilate its own being.
41] There is another question present in you: Whether those beings, which are understood as rags, also will have a continual self-consciousness or not? I, however, say to you: The question answers itself almost automatically, because you cannot possibly assume that there should perhaps be any unconscious point in the Deity.
42] This question therefore solves itself; except for one more question: Whether this self-consciousness is a suffering one or not? See: that is a different question. However, to understand this correctly, you must first recognize that every effort, in order to find itself, must comprehend a certain necessary suffering in itself. Only now, it depends only on whether this suffering is painful or pleasant.
43] If this suffering consists in the fact that the being seizes continuously in itself and by this seizing is striving to form or shape itself forever into a unity, then such a suffering is extremely pleasant and the feeling from the clearest self-assurance an extremely blissful one.
44] If, however, the suffering, or the self-assured feeling of a being, is tearing and destructive in itself, then it is also an extremely painful one; this you can simply learn from nature as well, if you have ever observed any kind of an inflammatory illness, which consists of nothing other than that certain parts in the body begin to expand more and more. The more violent such an act carries on, the more painful it becomes. The result from this is that the self-confident essential condition of the fire-related prime-evil must also be extremely painful and cause immense suffering.
45] You will now perhaps think that as a result the Deity must thereby continually suffer extremely painfully in its portion of wrath. In fact it is not so! But it is simply as if food is boiled down in your stomach; driven through the fire of the stomach, here the little husks crack open from the nourishment one has eaten. However, do ask yourself whether this horrific destruction-process has ever hurt you in your natural state in the fire of your stomach? -
46] However, since I have led you already so far, I want to give you on this occasion a never before outspoken hint! If you want to see the final cause of such a situation of all worldly material prime-malice, then look into your stomachs and observe what happens there with the food that you eat; observe the how and why? Consequently, you will all see a great segment of My ways, as to what will happen. However, the time is not recorded in your stomachs, and it is enough for you all that I have shown you the purpose. – (12 Hours)
ELEVENTH HOUR – The Prodigal Son
You have all read the story of the prodigal son1 in My bookLuke 15:11-32, and you have probably heard and read this story not just once but many times. I say unto you, that in the entire book there is no verse and chapter that is undoubtedly more profound than the prodigal son. What‘s more, there will not be a place anywhere in the scripture for you that is more difficult to understand, than this one. And the reason as to why you need to know this is because it is of utmost importance and, as such, is an indispensable key to one‘s own inner self- examination. 3 The reason for this goes as follows: Often I speak exalted things to take notice of from My Wisdom through Love; often, however, I also speak of seemingly insignificant things things that are minor from my Love through the Light of Wisdom. Now notice: In the first case, you will be offered only so much as your own individuality can possibly endure; in the second case, however, a cloaked infinity is given unto you, whereby the final development the evolutionary change and comprehension will not be reached in eternities. 6 Although the things in the world are this way, nevertheless, I did not reveal these situations to you so that you should see these things as to how things are in the world, no, because such and a thousand times worse will come in the future; of this you will, no doubt, hear and read often. However, I am announcing this to you for no other reason than this: that out of all this you would most deeply recognize the great secret of the prodigal son to your own greatest benefit. 8 In order to understand all this, it is particularly necessary that you realize who this prodigal son actually is. 9 See, he is called ―….‖ - See, in this name is for you the entire eternally incomprehensible and endless compendium1 of the prodigal son. – 18 He who has ears: Hear; and he who has eyes: See. You all know how it went with the prodigal son in his last phase, … 24 I do not have to say anymore to you. However, what do you say to a very sick person if his feet have become cold and cold sweat drops sit on his head? Truly, no additional medical exam1 is needed in order to be able to express it in a prophetic spirit: Only a few more heavy pulse-beatings and the struggling anguish of life‘s weariness is over! - 26 You may still remember in the last hour how "the second face" was made known and explained to you. You probably will now think: does this second face have any relationship with the lost son as well? - 28 Again, let us return to our prodigal son and watch a little how he wrestles with death‘s greatest misery. Look at his soul; see how she is com- pressed to a small point; and really, it must come to this extreme! 29 But take notice; in the previous chapter I revealed to you the diverse aspects of the souls, through which the second face will come; this correlation is now taking place with the prodigal son‘s soul. Look, now her great misery extends itself into fast vibrations and these arrive before the big heavenly Father‘s house; the vibrations of the love-filled Father lovingly exchange with the fear, misery and impoverished vibrations of the prodigal son. 3See. Now you have the entire, up to this present moment, hidden secret of the Prophetic Number of Mankind2 revealed before your eyes. If you only somewhat go through the circumstances of time, truly, you have to be more than dead if you are still not aware of the Holy vibrations of grace that are now streaming out from the Holy Father‘s house! 34 See, the time of My Grace is near, and that is why I have also given you such divine insights here, that you should recognize it, that it is That Great Time, from which the prophets have sung, yes, This very Time2, which was by Me foretold out of My mouth.
TWELFTH HOUR – The Great Cosmic Man
Now that we have accompanied and illuminated the prodigal son from his rise to his fall in the eleventh hour, and have also calculated the time and nearly determined the hour that must testify of his downfall, consequently in the twelfth hour we are going to see where and how this prodigal son will once again return—humbled through and through—into the immense and grand house of the Father. However, in order to understand this fully, it is not enough that we have looked a little through the world-mote called earth; but for this purpose I have added an already mentioned tiny devise in the—to you—conscious camera obscura1 of the spirit; and we once again take a somewhat broader view in this newly prepared chamber. - I am telling you… be prepared; because this sight will bring something before your eyes that until this time has come into no man‘s mind. With the ability of this new devise the camera obscura, the tablet also becomes the receiver of a big picture, and as a result will be enlarged and assume a vertical instead of the former horizontal position. 5 Now, what do you say to the picture? Exactly, on this blackboard you see nothing more and nothing less, than the clear figure of a human being1, whose loins are only scarcely covered by some rags and whose hair, even with the shaggy appearance, trails from his head and covers half the body. 9 In reality, what do you think these tiny globules are? See: I will not let you guess for very long, but if you think that these tiny globules are images of remote suns, planets, moons and comets, hear… I have to say to you: Children! Judge not too hastily, otherwise you will err tremendously! However, before I reveal the being of these minuscule globules to you, do your utmost to count these globules on one lentil-size spot! - 15 However, in order to arrive at our earth, I must once again come over the tiny shimmering dot with My Epheta, and so I speak ―Epheta!‖ Now look; how this tiny globule has now expanded and nearly takes in the entire large round form of the tablet. 21 Just so that we arrive more quickly toward the goal, I am going to select the right minute little dot for you and all the remaining dots will be erased on the tablet; and at once add the ―Epheta.‖ 25 Now that we have seen everything, let us once again return to our prodigal son. Look onto the tablet; once again our first figure flaunts itself on the same. Although now this figure is getting smaller and smaller; … 27 Now, if you heed this picture just a little, you might begin to grasp as to what the reason or nature of the return of the prodigal son is. Do not
think that this fallen‖… ―, who was revealed to you in the eleventh hour, is going to return as whole or complete. If such would have been possible, truly, a material creation never would have taken place; 29 instead, every single person who lives according to My Words and is born-again3 through the Word and through the salvation or redemption, is this prodigal found again and he will return into the immense and glorious house of the Father- God! – 3… Or is My salvation and My Word not just as imperative for each individual person, as for entire nations? And cannot each human being receive Me with his love and the living faith for himself, that I reside in him and he in Me?
The rags of the prodigal son
37 However, you have heard that the rags of the prodigal son were dispersed by the winds like chaff, and the remaining rags were taken off him and burned. Do you know what these rags mean? 40 This is how it will happen! So that God becomes a free God again, in which no more matter seethes, so must the fire or the related wraths once again return from where it—as that what it is—came from. And it will happen, as if you have some kind of hardening on your body and you cover it with a hot poultice,3 so this hardening becomes soft again. So too will My eternal fire seize this prime-evil hardening in its all-ness or entirety, in order to thereby again assimilate its own being. 43 If this suffering consists in the fact that the being seizes continuously in itself and by this seizing is striving to form or shape itself forever into a unity, then such a suffering is extremely pleasant and the feeling from the clearest self-assurance an extremely blissful one. 46 However, since I have led you already so far, I want to give you on this occasion a never before outspoken hint! If you want to see the final cause of such a situation of all worldly material prime-malice, then look into …… 47 Now see, dear children! This is everything that can be given to you; this is everything that you are able to endure; you do not need to know any more; but heed this from point to point, and in fact from the very first hour to the very last hour. Walk this way through the entire earth within you, and in doing so, find the prodigal son within yourselves. 51 Finally I like to make you aware of this: Presently I have not only come toward you, but have also already come towards many other prodigal sons. I, your grand, Holy, most affectionate Father, am saying this to you. (The 12 Hours)
The end of the times of the earth - salvation of matter in each saved human soul
 Now John said: “Lord, You always say: ‘until the end of times of this Earth’. Good, but when these will be over, how will it go urther in the whole of eternity, and will we then until the end of the times of this Earth have to stay here and continuously proclaim Your gospel to all the nations of the Earth?”
 With a friendly face I said to My beloved disciple: “You still have such a childish spirit and childish reason. What your physical personality is concerned you also will not have to live longer on this Earth than any other normal healthy person, but you will continue to live and partly remain spiritually active in all those who will follow you in My name, but for another important part you will continue to live with Me in My Heavens forever and from there be able to act upon the people of this Earth, who, as you know, have above all the destination to become My children, just like all of you.
 But it still will last for you an inconceivably long time before the actual end of times of this Earth will come. Because look, all matter of this Earth consists of judged souls who still need to be made free. Now count 1 atom of matter for the substance of 1 soul, and consider that per year only 10,000 times 10,000 of souls can be released by the means that I have already repeatedly shown you – because on the face of the Earth with such a great yearly increase of the number of people not more people can exist – then you surely will perceive that the Earth, although still over many changes, will also in material respect still exist for quite a long time.
 On top of that, from the sun and the ether that is surrounding it, matter is continuously added to the Earth, of which the quantity is in fact smaller than the yearly quantity of released matter, and from that point of view you will understand moreover what kind of very long duration of existence there is still needed for this Earth until its last times. However, all this is determined by Me in this way since eternity, and that time seems to be long only for man who still carries the burden of the flesh, but in My Kingdom you will look at the time (GGJ Book 19, chap. 48 )
2. THE EARTH: A TRAINING SCHOOL FOR
THE CHILDREN OF GOD
 Cyrenius however says to Me once again: “Lord, indeed I know now from Your own divine mouth why everything in the world is and happens the way it does, and I now know Your divinely wisest plans concerning the education of mankind in all times and all zones of the Earth; but at the same time I must nonetheless admit quite openly that, seen from a worldly viewpoint, this Pharisee basically has a lot going for him. There is truly from alpha to omega no world of love and truth, but instead a very terrible world full of hate and full of lies and falsehoods and injustice! But it could indeed be quite different! But things are so and will never be otherwise, and the Earth is damned to remain a house of misery, and its human children will constantly have to swelter on its surface! But it could surely be different!”
 I said: “Yes, yes, it could indeed be different, as it is different on countless many other planets; but then exactly this Earth would not be chosen for the cultivation of those people who are designated and called to become My children!
 Can true, powerful love ever become fully aware of itself among human beings who themselves are pure love? What object on which to practice patience, humility and meekness could be given to people filled with love from birth?
 If I had endowed every man's nature with the highest degree of perfection from birth, not requiring his own effort, what practice in life- and self-development would be thinkable for him?
 For what activity could such spirits finally be used? I tell you: The trees of the wood and the rocks of the mountains in the very most indispensable self-activity would be many times more
preferred than a person quite perfected in every respect right from birth on!
 Picture a man, fully developed physically and always enjoying a table richly laid with the most delicious foods and drinks so that he would never suffer from hunger or thirst. Moreover, he had a most magnificent living-room and besides the mental capacity to see, perceive, enjoy and communicate with everything and everyone in the minutest detail, both nearby and at a great distance, never encountering any difficulties whatsoever. Surely such a man would never leave his comfortable abode even for a moment.
40. THE LORD PREPARES HIS DISCIPLES FOR THE FUTURE
 AFTER we passed through the shallow waters we went straight to the north on a bypath that went through a very pleasant hill landscape. This was because I wanted to avoid the environment of Jericho, and because on that trip, which was very lonely and where nothing special was happening, My disciples had to climb to an inner level of perfection.
 Because gradually the time was now coming of which it is stated: ‘Now you still can see Me, but in a little while you will not see Me’, and it was necessary to more inform all My followers
who were mature for that, because especially My disciples still did not want to believe that the Jews would receive power and authority over Me despite the many hints they received about this.
Therefore, I led them on completely unknown ways ever deeper into the mountains.
 When evening came, we sat down in the open at the feet of a rather high mountain, and I spoke to My followers as follows: “My beloved ones, for a long time you have been witnesses of My deeds and My teaching, so that you can know now how and by what the Kingdom of Heaven has come near and has come down to you in all His fullness. However, I led you now to this remote valley to let you become silent within yourselves and reflect in quietness to strengthen your faith for the coming events, for when the Shepherd is hit, it is not good that the sheep would not at least know how they can find their way to the stall on their own.
 So be prepared to search within yourselves to see where it is still dark in your heart, so that the Light, as long as it shines, can well illuminate all corners and that you will know your house well when there will be temporary darkness. For I surely know that you are weak, although you think that you are giants, this as long as I personally support you. Once this will lack it will come clear how strong you are and whether you do not have to worry to fall.
 But let us first strengthen our bodies now, and do as I told you. Examine your inner self, and if anyone discovers a question in him, bring it forward. But one of you should look behind those bushes to see what is given to us.”
 Truly I tell you: whoever seeks the life of this world, and also easily finds it, shall lose life eternal and on judgment day, following the shedding of his body, I shall not awaken him to everlasting life, but cast him into Hell for eternal death.
 But he who does not seek worldly life, even shuns and despises it out of true, pure love for Me, shall find eternal life, for I shall awaken him immediately after the death of his body, i.e. on his judgment day, or the first day of his new life in the spirit-world, and shall lead him into My Eternal Kingdom and adorn his head with the crown of eternal, immortal wisdom and love and he will then rule forever with Me and all the angels of eternal, infinite
Heaven over all the material and spirit world.’ (GGJ Book 2, chap. 39)
 I said: ‘Friend, you are blind if you do not see and understand this. If I mentioned that Heaven was endlessly vast, how can you ask about its size? The spiritual Kingdom of Heaven is everywhere as endlessly extended as this endless universe of which you can see with your eyes but an unspeakably tiny fraction.
 This Earth, the great sun, the moon and the stars all of which are immense worlds, some of them thousands upon thousand million times larger than this Earth – all that taken together is – compared to the endlessly vast creation of the material world, in magnitude and vastness not even as much as the smallest dewdrop compared to the immense ocean which is so vast that a good sailor would need more than twice the age of Methuselah to sail over all of its area. However, the material world up to now, as much as has already been created, still has a limit beyond which there exists an infinite, eternal space compared to the absolutely endless expansion of which, in all directions, the entire aforesaid creation of the whole material world is like a moment compared to eternity.
 Thus, the spirit world is quite as endless as infinite space that does not end anywhere.
 Although space has nowhere an end in eternity and is thus truly endless in all directions, there is in its most endless depths and distances not a single spot where the spirit of God’s wisdom and
might is not as much present as now here among you. The true children of God, who will excel in proper love for God, the holy Father from eternity, and also in pure love for their neighbors, shall beyond in the great house of the Father obtain the might and the power to forever fill the infinite space with more and more new creations.
 You, however, are still too ignorant and cannot grasp what I have now told you. But this I nevertheless tell you: No mortal eye can see nor ear hear and no earthly sense can ever grasp what beyond in the Kingdom of Heaven awaits those who become worthy of being called children of God.
 For, before the eyes of true children of God, the globes, suns and moons shall be floating like glimmering dust.
42. THE PLAN OF CREATION AND SALVATION REVEALED
NOTA BENE: Many will ask the question here why I actually called the souls of My disciples out of their bodies to make them witness this event. This was because of 2 reasons.
 Firstly, when they wake up, they should not remember this during their life on Earth, for that would have been unnecessary for them, even harmful for their further development, and secondly because the soul can only perceive his former levels of development in his free condition. What matters is the last mentioned, so that these souls could completely recognize Me as their Lord and Creator and would ask Me to protect them. Lucifer had to realize that he was losing more and more followers and that his power became ever weaker.
 Now here is the moment to understand the following and explain very clearly who and what Lucifer actually is, how one should visualize him and how he can be overcome in every individual, for only when these most important questions are correctly and clearly answered is it possible to understand the creation, My descend to this Earth, and My suffering and dying. So, while putting aside every other opinion, let the world listen to the great secret of My plan of creation and salvation.
 When the deity had found Himself through processes that will always remain hidden to you, and became aware of His creative and all-encompassing Spirit, a mighty surging and pushing arose in Him and He spoke in Himself: ‘I want to put My ideas outside of Me, so that I will be able to see from this what My powers can do.’
For as long as there is no activity, the deity can only know Himself in a small measure. It is only through His works that He becomes ever more aware of His power and rejoices in it (just like every master artist can only see from his own products what is in him and rejoices in it).
 But as fast as you, My friend, imagine it now, such spirit will not attain to the full light. For as soon as he reaches this kind of freer consciousness, so that he will remember several things, his old fantasy will come up again. And with this, he soon will create again a world for himself that corresponds to his old love, and he is pleased with that. So he has to lose his self-created paradise again and understand the unreality of it, after which he can again be placed on a higher level of light.
 This happens oftentimes with many spirits like you saw here. Because a wrong love – which, despite all the things that are wrong in it, is the only thing that brings about the self-awareness of a spirit’s life – cannot so easily and quickly be transformed into a real, true love through the necessary way of the free will, as you imagine.” (GGJ Book 22, chap. 38)
 NOW you think by yourself: ‘Yes but, the divine wisdom and almightiness should be very well capable to do this.’ But I say to you: if I would want that, then it also would not have been necessary for Me to ever come Myself in the flesh as a Son of Man on this Earth and as a teacher to teach you men, and it also would not have been necessary in the beginning of times to awake all kinds of wise men and prophets for you.
 For if, only through My almightiness, you could have been transformed into children who are like Me in everything, then I certainly would have done that. But since you never could have been transformed into free, independent children who are like Me in everything while being continually kept in the leading-strings of My almightiness, but would always have remained the same as all the other material beings, like the clay, the air, the water, the
stones, metals, plants and all kinds of animals, it must be as it is, and not different, which I as Creator of all things and beings can of course see most clearly. For – understand this well – the creation of gods is something quite different than the creation of suns, worlds and all the other beings in the whole endless space of creation. Did you well understand this now?
100. ABOUT THE GODLY ORDER ON THE SPIRITUAL WAY OF LIFE
 THE Roman Marcus, who very seriously listened to every of My words to the captain, came to Me and said: “Lord and Master, I have well understood the meaning of Your words, and I arked its extent deeply into my heart, but I still cannot refrain to confess openly that the life of man is under such circumstances, in which he has to develop himself, absolutely no joke. The rule can quickly and easily be spoken out, but cannot that quickly and easily be executed.
 You said that man should master for half in conquering his senses and lusts and also the still high tendency – especially during his youthful years – for the charms of the world, before he may hope for Your support, and You will then give him the complete mastery. Although, this sounds very good and true, and unto a certain extent also easy, and one can also soon perceive that this will be and has to be so according to Your creative order. But when one considers that almost for every young person, over whom the charms and enticements of the world have an ever increasing power than over someone who is already becoming older and who can very easily turn his back on the attractions of the world, it must be extremely difficult to turn all his senses and lusts away from the world, and to walk with manly power on the spiritual path and to continue thereon. Since this is supreme and most important to man, I still would like to ask the following question, which seems sensible to me – according to my way of thinking – namely if it would not be more profitable for everyone if You, o Lord and Master, would prefer to support by helping him at the time of his greatest weakness, and he would thus with Your help attain to half of the mastery, after which the attainment of the second half with the help of his own life power and willpower would not lead to such great difficulties as the attainment of the first half of the mastery of life.
 Because I know from my very own life’s experience with what kind of power the charms of the world have often beaten my better thinking and willing to the ground, stirring up my fantasy and filling my whole mind with burning passions. Yes, Lord and Master, then it would have been good if You had tempered in me this fervent force of my passions. Now I am tempering them with little difficulty very easily myself, and in a lot of points self-denial comes by itself. Of course, this is no merit if one has only to fight against little dwarfs of worldly passions with his own life power, and they therefore can also easily be battled and conquered than in the powerful youth in which a whole army of armored giant passions are charging against man and are easily and completely crushing the weak fighter.
 When for instance in a smaller or bigger village a house is on fire, then I believe that during the fire it is indeed the highest time to help the one whose house has caught fire to extinguish the fire, for if he succeeds to master his burning house, and the helpers are only arriving later when the greatest danger is already past, then it seems to me that their help did not come at the right time. However, I do not mean to answer my question authoritatively myself by what I have said now, and thus I ask You for Your opinion.”
Earth and Moon chap. 53, 33, 54, 55:
We already know that a soul may be re-divided, because she is composed of countless particles of intelligence. This will occur either for total dissolution or in specific partial concentrations, in accordance with the kinds and various numbers of the united individual intelligences within, so as to assume corresponding formations.
There are many examples of this phenomenon in and upon the Earth. Look at the various metals, plants, and animals, which clearly provide you with many such examples whereby psychic or astral connections may shape themselves into the most peculiar formations. They are no more than external material pictures of internal soul forms, because the external form can only correspond to the internal one; as the internal power of formation, thus is the effect of the external form.
Such a division of the soul occurred when the first human pair was created, when out of one soul two souls came, because nowhere is it said that the Creator breathed life into Eve; instead, Eve came forth from Adam with a body and a soul. Into this second soul was also placed an immortal spirit; thus out of one human being and out of one soul came two, and yet they were one flesh and one soul. A division of the soul may easily be recognized in children, because the soul of the child is taken partially from the soul of the parents. The resemblance of children to their parents is proof of this. And what is foreign is what is dissimilar.
