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 entire visible creation represents a wonderful resurrection of all matter. In the 'Great Gospel' vol.6, Chap. 246, the Lord says: "The great Cosmic Man I have shown you represents in general the 'prodigal son' who is on his way home. And the father who comes to meet him is I (Jesus) - at present as a man among you. In every human who lives in accordance with My teaching, I receive the great primordial spirit back into the house of his Father. Happy the sinner who repents and penitently returns to Me."
