GGJ, Book 17, chap. 60:
" Agrippa said: “O Lord, You endless wise Master from eternity, how great must Your love be for us men, Your created beings. The fact that You wanted to humble down Yourself so deeply to come down from Your Heavens in our human form, to us worms on this dirty world, to teach us and to show us the ways that we should go if we want to reach eternal life.”
 I (The Lord) said: “Dear friend, your question expresses the overflow of your heart and is good, because also your heart is good, but in your mind it has only now just begun to dawn a little, and the love of God for you humans seems to be something indescribably wonderful to you because you imagine God as a very great and mighty emperor who shows himself only very rarely to the common people and talks even less to a simple man.
 If you look at God from that point of view, you are very mistaken, for God is the Creator of all things and beings, and not an endless proud emperor who, sitting on a golden throne considers his people to be disgusting and despising worms, and threatening everyone with death who would dare to approach the throne of the emperor without asking first and having been granted permission.
„They are looking for Me everywhere in the churches, but not on the road of life, where their actions are supposed to bear out what they so frequently profess in their churches." (Lord’ Sermons 202 f.)
"The Kingdom of God can of course never come from the external church, for it is the real, inner, eternal life of the spirit. But this external church is by my design and provision a protection for the inner church which can be easily found by any who wish to find it. And it makes no difference which outer church they belong to - so long as it somehow speaks in My name and of My word." (Himmelsgaben II, p. 375, 8)
Do not, however, curse the whole tree because its bark has died." (Himmelsgaben I, p. 98) "
If you wish to become apostate (i.e., leave the church), this will little benefit your brothers." (Himmelsgaben I p. 99)
"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.
" Now the highly ranked counselor said again: ‘But why would it be, namely for the high priests, harmful to – at least for a few years – compel them by the omnipotence and the wisdom of Your God to end idolatry and teach the people the truth? If God’s omnipotence would liberate them again and they would want to go back to the old idolatry, then the enlightened people would certainly correct them in such a way that they would never more want to deal with this old idolatry again. Am I right or not?’
 I said: ‘If this would be advisable and good for the salvation of the people, then God would not need the priests, but He could also let the trees and the stones speak, which would even have a greater impact with the people. But in both cases it is not only of no benefit for the free will of men but it would merely harm the free development of the inner independent life of the soul. Because if suddenly all your priests would start to preach loudly against their old gods and idols to the people who are now still for the greatest part superstitious and whose convictions are for the greater part based on untruths, the people would consider them as enemies of their old gods, would grab and strangle them. And when trees and stones would teach the people, an enormous compulsion would be exerted on their consciousness and their will and then also the people would soon assault their idols and priests and destroy them.
 Say for yourself, who would be helped by that? Not the people. By that they would not have a free but an entirely imposed belief, consciousness and will, by which their souls could not become free as was the case with their old superstition, which now already by many among you has become very transparent as a result of personal searching and thinking.
 A belief that has been imposed by miracles would have – as just mentioned – no sense, because it would be just like the old one, a superstition, and for the priests it will also not be beneficial. And neither for you. Or do you have proof that you are really a wise man when you are only answering the questions which you are asking yourself?
No exaggerated awe, but love for God. No Temples and days of fest, but schools and houses for poor. Prophecies about the evolution of the Christian churches. The right prayer
No exaggerated awe, but love for God
" When the 30 heard that from Roklus, they fell down in deep awe with their face to the ground and called out: “Honor to You, God on high! Holy and above all, eternally mighty is Your name! O Lord from eternity, do not reject us, children of Abraham, and be forgiving and merciful! Your holy will only, will be our law for the whole future according to which we want to act, live and die!”
 On this I said: “Now all this is very praiseworthy for Me, but in this position of yours I cannot speak with you. Stand up as free and wise thinking men and refrain from an exaggerated respect. For I did not come to you to let Myself be worshiped and honored as an idol by blind pagans, but to make known your God whom you have forgotten, and His will, to establish on Earth the Kingdom of God, the true Kingdom of eternal life, and to destroy the old shackles and dungeons of sin, the devil, the judgment and the death of the souls. That is why I want that men should not with a meaningless awe crawl as worms before Me, but as men who can and should become children of God, being free and open and straight up be gathered around Me as true friends and brothers, listening to Me and also talking with Me. And now that you have heard My wish and will, you should stand up and speak freely and openly with Me.”
 When the 30, who still were lying with their face to the ground, heard that from My mouth, they slowly stood up, but were still all dizzy from sheer awe, and no one of them dared to ask Me something or request something.
Why sometimes the answer to prayers is delayed
" Believe Me: our Jehovah is since eternity the only true, good, living God and has never failed to answer the supplications of those who without doubting believed in Him, who have kept His commandments and thus also who loved Him above all and their fellowman as themselves. Even if He sometimes delayed to completely answer their supplications in order to purify their souls all the more, but He still has never failed to answer them completely and has always fulfilled them, often at a moment when those who prayed for it thought about it in the least.
 You yourselves – I know this very well – have often prayed in your need to God that He would take away your misery, but because you previously lived in great wealth as men who were in high esteem, but have thereby manifested physical and spiritual laziness in every respect, He let you go through a serious and hard school of life for a few years, so that you would not only experience the attractiveness of the earthly life but also that you yourselves would experience its bitterness, so that from then on you would search in yourselves and come to know the real value of life and its purpose.

"Do you want to know what the Freemasons are nowadays? Then just look at the present ceremonial of the Christian Church. Look, it stands only for appearance, and this is also the case with the present Freemasons. Their emphasis is on empty ceremonies and phrases. They only pretend to help mankind, for although they have had kings and emperors and other eminent personages as their members, you can see from the behavior of the same how far the rights of mankind had been their paramount concern.
What I once said to the Essenes, namely that they should do nothing secretly, but should do everything openly, should also be said to these present Freemasons. Their principle is: The human rights of equality. All are supposed to be “brothers”. Indeed, this is what they were and are. But only in the Lodge proper: outside of it all equality ceases and the king is again king and the impecunious compared to him a nonentity, since he is only used as a means to an end.
Do you know what freemasonry should actually be? Even according to the articles of the present society, nothing else but the representation of the enactment of My second commandment, of neighborly love!
Earth and Moon, chap. 66:
"Where is the benefit in all the churches that are filled with idolatry, and that indicate the observance of all the different kinds of foolish self‑renunciation? The most sensible thing to do would be to let the stream take its course. When it reaches the ocean it must give itself up. And it would be just as foolish to swim upwards against this stream, because the more vigorously you resist the waves, the stronger will they strike your brow. The best solution is to let the stream flow, as and whither it flows – but distance yourself in your heart from it as far as you can, and seek the secure path to pure truth.
As an individual, it would be folly to oppose something that has established itself more and more as a certain norm over the centuries. It would be like a war between one soldier against a thousand: what could one man do against so many? The same applies to anyone who would oppose a common order that has been in existence for a long time. Even if his opinions were absolutely correct, what could he do if the great majority are blind and deaf?
I never look at the exterior of a human being, but at all times only at the interior. Therefore, any honest Christian may cheerfully attend a divine service in a house of prayer; if he be with Me in his heart, no harm will come to him.
Earh and Moon, chap. 70:
"There are many who say: “There is nothing wrong with searching for the kingdom of God; but if only it were easier to find, and if only there were a church or a Christian congregation somewhere through which the proper path to God’s kingdom could be found.” Rome proclaims: „I alone am the right path!” And all the other churches make the same claim. Should you travel one or the other of these paths that is supposed to lead to the kingdom of God, you will probably find everything else, but you will not find the promised kingdom of God.
What I have to say in regard to this is as follows: When one has to search too long for even the most precious object, one will in time discontinue one’s search. But whose fault is it? That of he seeker himself, if he looks for the kingdom of God where it cannot be found rather than where it can. It is clearly written that the kingdom of God does not come with external splendor, but rather it is within a human being. Its cornerstone is Christ, the one and only God and Lord of Heaven and Earth, temporary and eternally in space as in infinity, in Whom the heart must believe, and above all Whom the heart must love, and love its fellow man like itself.
Earth and Moon, chap. 72:
"Some modern philosophers consider Me merely another philosopher, and maintain that every human being has the right, in accordance with Christian teachings, to absolve sins because I, as the Originator of these teachings, forgave also the sins of people who personally never offended Me.
My answer to those philosophers is the one I made to those Jews who confronted Me with the adulteress: “He that is without sin among you, let him cast a stone at her, and his deed shall be granted in all the heavens!”
I, as a man, could forgive anyone’s sins, since I was without sin. But he who is not without sin is not allowed to do so. To be without sin means to be in the highest degree in humility and love. The laws of God must have become such a human being’s own nature. In order that the power of God may dwell in him fully, all desires, even to the lowest level, from childhood on, must be removed from his flesh. Only then may such a human being say to any person, “Your sins are forgiven!” and they will be forgiven. But in this instance the person himself does not forgive sins, but the divine power alone. It is possible only for the divine power to reconcile the hearts of those that have sinned against one another and become enemies; that means to make their hearts red hot with the divine fire. This suffocates all anger, all haughtiness and all envy.
