03] Hanoch was now within a short period of time entirely organized according to My order and all the people had no other commandment than only that of love to God and the neighbor. And unchastity was preached as evil through which every person ruined his spirit and therefore also all its forces.
04] And in the same manner also many other ills were eradicated, however, not through sanctioned laws by the teachers of the people but only through wise teachings whereby the teacher showed the people in the clearest light, the evil consequences which necessarily must arise from it.
05] And over time, every man, becoming spiritually a little stronger and also every finer and reasonable woman, realized that the wise teaching of the teachers began to materialize alive in them.
06] And in this way these people lived for some time righteously through teachings alone, initially of course through teachers and then out of themselves, without laws.
07] Thus, wise education, was the cornerstone of the whole spiritual and stately well-being of the people.
08] But the following will show sadly, whereby, towards the deluge, humanity has so completely
fallen away from Me, that they thereby, through their captured will, passed entirely over into the power of the big enemy of life.
09] But during the times after Lamech’s turnaround, both the heights as well as the depths were so perfect that there hardly even in the heavens, a better pure spiritual order could have been found as it existed at that time on earth.
10] When at that time even the snake would have submitted, the earth would have been converted back into the old Paradise; but the snake repented it soon that it had accepted My conditions only halfway, and so it soon began, according to its free will, to play its old, evil tricks again.
11] But if it had tested over a time of about seven hundred years humanity only for the good, thereafter its trials began to take on a completely different character; it became of an evil and increasingly more cunningly captive nature, and humanity allowed itself willfully to be caught! But the following will show all this sadly; therefore enough of it for the time being! (HHG vol. 3, chap. 82)
01] Thus were the people of the earth now fully educated and enriched with all knowledge. The gap between the heights and the depths was abolished, so as every person could act unhindered with the freest will.
02] And so, also the knowledge of God was fully alive and the first church thus founded, in which every person could find the inner world of the spirit in the pure love to God.
03] And so everything was perfectly fine for as long as these first ancestors lived; but when they
were called away and one after the other died, it soon unfortunately became otherwise.
04] The world became increasingly ever more prevalent, the spiritual was lost and we see soon entirely material people who do not much longer knew more about the spirit than the people of the present time and therefore did no longer allow themselves to be guided and penalized by My spirit.
05] For thus the serpent knew how to bless the nature of the earth with its curse that it brought forth in such opulence that the people soon became spoiled which turned them into sluggards and idlers. (HHG vol. 3, chap. 115)
