Look, the One in Me who is now speaking to you, spoke also like this to the first human pair of this Earth and gave them the same commandments which I now again give to you people who have completely forgotten the one true God and Lord. However, the people who were gifted with a completely free will, let themselves all too easily be blinded by the world and its tempting spirit. They fled away from God and did whatever they pleased. By that, their souls became darkened and their heart became hardened.
 I always sent messengers from the Heavens to teach the blinded people, but only a few paid attention to them. The great mass of people did not want to hear them or know about them.
 From time to time, by My Spirit, I awakened men and younglings who taught the people and who made every effort to bring them back to the old truth. Only a few listened to them, and still less people reacted on it. The great mass of people however, persecuted them, tortured them and even killed them.
 I also did not refrain from visiting a too degenerated people with great and small chastisements and judgments. However, also these brought only a few to a short time of improvement, but all too soon, again the evil worldly spirit came instead of Me.
 When at the time of Moses, the Israeli people received again laws from Me on the Sinai in the desert, under lightning, thunder and fire, they first listened with fear and trembling to My good words that could be heard from afar, but when the preaching lasted a longer time, the people became partly used to it and did not care much about it anymore. Another part had enough of My continuous teaching and asked Me to reveal My will only to Moses instead of to the whole people. They would hear and obey that will from him. However, in the mean time the people wanted to leave Mount Sinai because it was too turbulent there and they wanted to build their dwelling huts in a valley that was far away from there.
 After much begging, it was permitted to the people. But it did not take long before the people forgot Me and the great events on the Mount Sinai entirely, molded a calf from the great quantity of gold that they brought from Egypt, danced around it and gave it godly honor.
(Angel Raphael) “ Whenever God sends or awakens a prophet somewhere, all people should crowd around him to hear from him the holy word of God for their own greatest good.; for God awakens men, who are in the profound depth of true heavenly wisdom, only once every hundred years.
 But really great prophets, through whom God reveals to the people of the earth very many and great things, are sent to this earth at the utmost every thousand to thousand years. On the one hand, they are to show the people on a large scale and in more detail the new paths of God to still higher perfection and, on the other hand, to lead them back from the many self-made wrong ways and onto a right one.
 For behold, in God’s great creation everything is in a forward option, like the time on earth which also never stands still. This spirits are evidently making continuously great progress. Because such progress does take place continually in the realm of pure spirits, the immortal beings on the global worlds must not fall behind, as otherwise the distance between them and the realm of the spirits would become to great.
 After such great prophets have appeared, things go better with the people as regards their own activity, if not generally, yet individually. But whenever in the spirit world a great step forward is taken, the always somewhat veiled light of a former great prophet is awakened and sent, and mankind the catches up again, even if only in individuals at first, with the great lead of the spirit world.
"When the Catholic Church shall meet its judgement and its end, My teaching shall nevertheless continue among very many people on earth. But it will always be something that is free, and will quietly shine among men, a light to comfort them, but never be a queen ruling whole nations, upon a throne, with crown, sceptre and orb." (GGJ VIII 14, 17)
" That is the use of sowing a new piece of cloth to an old, worn out coat so that the repaired spot would cover the naked skin, protecting it against the wind for some time. But then, when only a little storm comes up, it will easily tear away the new piece of cloth from the old, worn out coat, and at the same time also a part of the coat. Then who will cover his naked skin against the cold? So make a completely new and strong coat for yourself right away as long as you still have the means for that, and do not waste in acquiring new pieces of cloth to repair the old and utterly worn out coat, which is not profitable. Then, when storms will come up, they will no more be able to do any harm to your skin.
 Which real innkeeper wants to put new wine into old sacks? What will happen to those sacks when the new wine will ferment in it? The wine will tear the sacks, and the unwise innkeeper will lose the sacks as well as the wine. An unwise ruler who shoves a new constitution into an old one can expect the same. By necessity, the new one will cause the ruin of the other, and the ruler will lose everything by that: his constitution, his country and his people, as there are already several examples of this now in Europe, and soon others will follow.
 I say to you: whoever will still make eyes at that certain man who calls himself pious, and will talk to him with a snake's tongue while My light from the Heavens becomes more and more intense, will soon be completely deserted and will stand alone. For I want that the long lasting courting of Babel will finally come to an end. From now on, everything will be new and different, and My Word that I have spoken to the apostles and to a lot of other people, must now arise with new strength and might, and then last until the end of times of this Earth. Everyone must come in the sun and warm themselves in the light of My teaching from the Heavens. And those who sincerely acknowledge and love Me must have, from the cradle to the grave, a continuous very visible relationship again with My angels and so also with Me, just like it was during the first times.
chap. 68 & 69, Earth and Moon:
"The third kind of so‑called vision derives from the highly superstitious assumption that particular natural occurrences have a prophetic connection with an event which will take place in the future. It should not be new to you to what inconceivably foolish secret intrigues some people resort to in order to find out in advance something about their ill‑fated future.
The first fools are the calendar‑makers, who, without an iota of wisdom and often in a most ridiculous manner, try to predict he weather for each and every day. Among these are some who date these days in accordance with so‑called critical days. Who is the Lord of the weather, I or the critical days? Or would you consider Me so unwise as to establish particular days of the year as harbingers of future weather?
Human beings judge future weather in accordance with these critical days, but they do not know the great critical days of their hearts, which would reveal to them the main weather of their future eternal life. People would act properly if they observed more the circumstances of their hearts and gained the understanding that there is continuous bad weather in their hearts, which probably originates from such multifarious critical days as those of play, of eating, of drinking, and of fornication, followed by days of idleness, of hard‑heartedness and slander, and many other such days.
 Thus, you should recognize it at the fruits, for no figs can be harvested from thistles and no grapes from a bush of thorns. From this, it will be easy to see if someone is My disciple or not. My disciples and also their disciples will love one another, just like I also always love you, but the false disciples will hate one another openly or secretly. Because in this consists the actual black and bad fruit of the lie, that it always hates itself, because the one lie never wants to yield to the other, but the truth continues to search its own and loves it more and more, just like one light never darkens the other, but only makes it more and more clear and finally leads to a united very bright light. (GGJ Book 19, chap 27)
Earth and Moon, chap. 71:
"Someone might raise the questions, “Can you, at all times, absolutely believe a born‑again being in regard to predicting the future? Or should you doubt his predictions?” This is My answer to these questions: “When the born‑again human being says, “Do that,’ then do it. When he says, “This or that will happen!’ and he does not mention the word “if,’ then do not believe him, because a truly born‑again being will never neglect to mention the conditional “if.’ Whatever will occur will occur conditionally. That is why a prediction of a future event will never take place with certainty. If something were determined in advance, the world would be in the severest of judgments and all freedom would be lost. A genuine born‑again being knows this very well, and therefore he would have to prophesy contrary to his knowledge if he were to predict something with certainty.
“I Myself was certainly the highest Prophet on Earth. But who can prove to Me that, apart from My Resurrection, I predicted anything else with certainty? I did say, however, that I should die and that I should rise again on the third day, but I did not predict to anyone the time or the hour. I also predicted My Advent, but, mind you, with the remark: The time and the hour is known to no one but Me alone, and to those to whom I will reveal it! However, I have already revealed My Advent, but not the time or the hour. Through the proclamation of the signs, My impending Advent may be recognized.”
