But so that in the future – if you will believe what the Essenes will teach you – you also may find help with them, I have given them the might and power to heal afflictions in My name, just as I have healed you yesterday evening. And now the chief should lay hands upon the lame and crippled, then they will be helped.”
 When the chief heard that from Me, he asked Me to help still for this time the disabled Myself, because for such work he still felt too unworthy and in his mind also still too powerless.
 I said: “Just do as I have told you, for a true disciple should always begin a work while the master is watching, so that the master – if the disciple would not succeed something – can draw his attention to his faults and the reason for the failure, for no disciple is as perfect as his master, but once he will become like his master – through his zeal and diligence – then, just as the master, he will no more fail in anything. So do now as I have told you, then everything will turn out right and will be completely fine.”
 Only now, the chief took courage and said: “O Lord and Master, now and always, simply and solely, Your will be done.” After these words, he stood up and went with great emotion to the disabled, stood among them and said: “In the name of the One who only is almighty, more than holy and endlessly good, full of love and merciful, I lay my weak hands upon you and may the great Lord and Master help you by that.”
 When the chief – while saying this expression, which was later on used by all My disciples in the healing of the sick – laid hands on the crippled, everyone of them became healed at once, in such a way as if there never had been anything wrong with them.
 Only one of them, having lost both of his hands up to the elbows because of a fall, and whose feet were also paralyzed, that were healed, did not receive his arms back and he said to the chief: “Since you have now by the will of the only almighty Lord already set me free from all my other afflictions, I believe now also very firmly that you can also create my lost hands.”
 Yes, as good doctors you can indeed in all earnest want from people who are looking for your help to confess all their sins and infirmities to you, so that then you can give them the right advice for the future, and if it is strictly observed, give them also the desired healing of their soul and their body. But also in that case you should not be a sin-forgiving representative of God but only helping brothers and friends of fellowmen who are suffering in body and soul, then their sins will also be completely forgiven in Heaven if they will follow your advice precisely and will have completely forgiven their sins themselves.
 So if in the future you truly want to help people, then teach them most of all how they have to help themselves, for if there is no serious preceding self-help, then also no help from God is possible. This is especially the case for the soul of man who has become weak and sick through all kinds of sins and who is often already completely dead. Because of his free will and good intellect that soul is – as far as God is concerned – left on his own and he should purify himself of all dross of matter and its judgment, so that after that he can also be purified and strengthened by the Spirit. (GGJ Book 20, chap. 42)
THE PROCESS OF DIGESTION IN THE HUMAN BODY AND SOUL
 mY dear friend and supreme judicial city officer, on your sharp-witted question from your mouth, I will also give you a clear and sharp-witted answer.
 Look, there seems to be a clear real difference between the miracles that I perform, but basically there is none. Look, everything that you eat and take into your stomach to strengthen and enliven your body is not as dead as you think. It has 3 parts: firstly a material part that you can see and feel. And when the food is well prepared you can perceive a good taste, and already beforehand you can also inhale the nice smell with your nose. Look, this is the part that enlivens your body.
 When secondly the food comes into the stomach, they are in a way cooked for a second time, and by that, 2 main elements are formed of which one of them – the biggest, to nourish the body, its limbs and muscles through the blood that comes from those 2 elements – is led to all parts of the body that need to be nourished and strengthened.
 Once these 2 elements are greatly extracted in the upper stomach from what you ate, and are spread in your body, you become thirsty and you drink. By that, the food comes into the lower, little stomach that is divided into 12 parts. Here, by means of a special fermentation process, the etheric particles are separated from these little cells of the food that you took and are needed to give life to the nerves. That is why you also can call this element ‘nerve spirit’.
 The extremely fine ethereal, which we will call ‘substance’, is guided by the spleen along a very hidden way to the heart, and from the heart it passes completely purified into the soul of man. And so also the soul takes of what is related to him, and by that he is nourished and strengthened in all his separate elements that correspond completely to those of the body.
42. OUR DAILY FOOD
 WHENEVER the soul demands material food for her body and such is handed to her, she also therewith always receives a legion of liberated and still evil and impure spirits into her body, which then must aid her in the ongoing bodybuilding process.
 The spirits gradually seize one another, soon forming their own souls, intelligent after their kind. After raising themselves to such level, they abandon the soul, as authorized possessor of the body, starting to make such arrangements within the body as will suit their imagined well being.
 With such spirits once reaching a high degree of imagined well being, as is easily the case with rapacious souls within young bodies, then one or the other phenomenon can and must make its appearance with such children.
 The foreign matter must be cast out through either an appropriate illness, unless it is intended to let the child go over into virtual spirit possession; or, in order to not torment some weaker child’s soul too much, one allows a soul to live on wretchedly within such half-foreign body until a certain time, to then cause it, through instruction either by the external or internal spirit world, to bring it to a level of insight where in the end it voluntarily starts to drive out her parasites, through fasting and all sorts of other self-deprivations; or, where the parasites are too stubborn, one takes the whole body away, and then develops such a soul in another world, for life eternal.
 Such cause also underlies the occasionally early physical death of the child, so bitter for the parents. Therefore, especially parents of terrestrial wealth, should be particularly concerned about their children obtaining the appropriate external food.
26. SICKNESS AND EARLY DEATH
 Says a Greek Jew: “Lord and Master, this is now quite clear to us, but there is still something for which I have no true explanation. Why do so many children have to die at the most tender age while still undeveloped, and why must physical death almost always be preceded by a bad illness which weakens and kills the body? Once a man is mature, he could as a soul leave
the body easily and painlessly, and children should never die before reaching a certain maturity. However, what happens all the time is this: Children die at any age, and the bad diseases are always there and are a continual plague for men. O Lord and Master, why must that be so on this earth?”
 I said: “This need not be so at all and was not the case in the deep past, for do you ever read in a chronicle of bad illnesses amongst the men who were devoted to God and living according to His commandments!? They all lived to a ripe old age and their passing was a gentle, painless going to sleep. Also, no child ever died, for it was begotten by very healthy parents and nourished and raised according to sound and simple natural principles.
 Only later, when arrogance and with it a whole legion of the grossest sins against God's commandments and laws of nature gained entrance among people, did all sorts of bad ailments occur among them through their own fault. The thus weakened people could then no longer beget healthy children. Such children, already crippled from the womb, gradually became prone to more and more attacks from all kinds of diseases and began to die at all ages.
 Because this is now happening you must not think that God had ordained this for men for some inexplicable, secret reason. He allowed it, firstly, so that the people be prevented from too much sinning through their ailments and, secondly, that they through their painful suffering distance themselves from the world, go into themselves, recognize their sins, detest them and in patient submission to God's will attain eternal bliss.
33. CAUSE AND PURPOSE OF SICKNESS AND SUFFERING
 Here one of the Jew-Greeks remarked by saying: “Lord, why can the anyway poor, mortal person only come to God through all kinds of pain and suffering? Could this also not happen through a healthy and suffering free life according to the recognized will of God?”
 I said: “Like man wants it; it depends mainly on himself. Even most of the life sicknesses are the result of all kinds of sins which a person already commits continuously from his youth until his old age and finally also out of a sort of habit. Some illnesses of a person are an inheritance of the parents and grandparents to their children and grandchildren, because in that case the parents and grandparents have already sinned. One then cannot accuse God if the people inflict all kinds of sicknesses, pain and suffering on themselves. One could say to Me: ‘If man is immediately taught by God what he has to do, to live and exist in the right order in the world, and he does not act accordingly, he obviously is guilty himself if he falls into all kind of suffering; if however, man has to learn everything from nature and by all kinds of adverse and often by bad experiences, then man is not guilty of his suffering and is then the most sorry-felt creature on earth!’
 Yes, I say Myself, man would be like that, if it would be so! However, that this is not the case is proven by the creation of the first human couple in Paradise, who almost uninterruptedly were taught by God in all kind of things for more than a hundred years. And in addition God awakened during that early time period on earth on and on seers and prophets, who taught and revealed the will of God to the more and more worldly becoming people.
 Under such circumstances no person could say that he was taught by nobody, how he has to live according to the will of God. But man began to cultivate himself and his earthly dwelling world quite considerable, build cities and erected one work of splendor after another, and in that way they fell in love with their world and because of all these worldly things they forgot about God and even became God-deniers. When a seer came, awakened by God, to these people, he was laughed at and nobody paid attention to the sense of his speech.
 Now, such people had to learn their cleverness of course by all kinds of bitter experiences and laboriously had to determine some rules of life therefrom. These life rules, like for example now among the many heathens, were however to the biggest part already sins against the true, divine order, and from it necessarily all kinds of bodily and soul sicknesses had to become a common occurrence among the people.
 If God now wants to preserve the soul of such people for the everlasting life, He must help her through all kinds of bodily suffering, namely to such an extent, that such a too much to the world attached soul through some suffering and pain is more and more pulled away from the world, since otherwise she would be totally attracted to and consumed by matter and the world and its death and judgment. And see, this is the reason why now on earth people have to endure a lot of suffering!
 But also we will have to suffer a lot for the spoilt people through their own fault. However, our suffering will not come over us based thereupon as if we would not have any knowledge about the pure divine order and as if our deeds would be contrary to it, but we will, through our suffering, make the blind seeing again, namely thereby, that they can see from us how little value we place on the life of this world, and what great value the life of the soul must have, if one reject all earthly advantages for the sake of it. And see, only therein will consist the first actual redemption of the people from death to life! But now enough about all this! Since lunch is ready now, let us go into the house and consume it!” (GGJ Book 15, chap. 33)
THE CAUSES OF THE INNKEEPER’S SON SICKNESS
 The innkeeper said: “O Lord and Master, now I very clearly perceive that only You are highly wise and are right in everything. The people are always to blame for all the afflictions from which they are suffering in body and soul.
 But whose fault was it actually that this son of mine, who always had been my most recommendable and most pious son since his earliest youth, became blind and lame?”
 I said: “Look, friend, 3 circumstances that came together contributed to it. The 1st circumstance was that you had a too great preference for him. Whenever he was threatened by even a little headache, immediately all known doctors had to come to him to cure him. These have with their very strong means driven a rather heavy head catarrh1 in his eyes and the son became blind.
 2nd circumstance: when your son became blind the doctors wanted to make him seeing again, used internally and externally strong, but completely wrong means by which your son became soon lame over his whole body.
 3rd circumstance: I knew this and permitted that it would come over you. And this for the following reasons: Firstly you then showed a greater love to your other children. Secondly you realized that a true Jew should, also during physical afflictions, always put his trust more in God than in the mostly blind and ignorant worldly doctors, for when no doctor can help, God alone can still very well help. And thirdly, I also permitted it because I well knew that I would come to you to give you a sign by healing your son, showing that I am the Lord and that nothing is mpossible to Me.
 By that you will realize for what fault your son became blind and lame for a time.
 But there is still a secret, inner, spiritual reason which you still cannot understand now but which will become clear to you in the other life. However, you and your son may hear now from My mouth that neither you yourself nor your son originate – as far as your souls are concerned – from this Earth but from above, that means from another one in the endless wide space of Heaven. Because everything that shows itself at the wide and deep Heaven as fixed stars, is one celestial body after another, and not one of them is without human beings, looking like all of you and gifted with reason. However, only this Earth carries My children. (GGJ Book 24, chap. 30)
7 Here the little Child went over to the doctor and said to him,
8 'Man! Why are you so foolish now and are afraid of Me?
9 Just what harm did I do to you that you now fear Me so?
10 Do you really suppose the healing of the girl was a wonder?
11 I say to you: not at all, for you need only undertake to treat the other patients in this manner, and they will be healed!
12 Go over, awaken their faith, then lay your hands on them, and they will get well in an instant!
13 But first you must firmly believe yourself that you can help them in this manner and also will help them without fail!'
14 When the doctor heard this from the little Child he took hold of a firm faith, went over to the patients and did to them according to the advice of the little Child.
15 And lo, all the patients became well immediately, paid the doctor what they owed him, and honored and praised God that He gave such power to man!
(Childhood of Jesus, chap. 275 )
(from "The Healing Power of the Sunlight")
On March 15th, 1840, our Lord, Jesus Christ, selected Jakob Lorber to serve as His scribe, and record what was dictated to him. He served in this capacity for 24 years, and in that time frame wrote 25 volumes, everyone of which is a fantastic disclosure of information from our Father to His children.
This important revelation about the healing power of sunlight was received by Jakob Lorber through the Inner Word, in Graz, Austria in the year 1851.
"Regarding the matter, one does not have to be too particular about the precise measure and weight, but one should be concerned, above all, to have the right faith and proper trust in Me, for you know that I am quite capable of drowning someone in a few drops of water and keeping alive another one who has fallen into the ocean.
The materials used in the sun cure have no effect anyway, except that they have to absorb and retain the sunrays under the prescribed conditions. Once these materials have served their purpose and are used for cases of sickness, together with the given diet, with proper faith as prescribed, they will not fail to be effective.
Above all, an unselfish good will and firm faith are needed, especially in the part of the helper, in order to help a sufferer with this revealed grace of Mine through the power of My Name, for you cannot always expect the sufferer to possess a complete faith. However, if the sufferer also fully believes, the effect of the remedy will be all the more certain and speedy.
(from "The Healing Power of the Sunlight")
"While undergoing the sun treatment, it is imperative that no other remedies, no injections, no radiations such as ultra-violet lamps be utilized, and this quarantine is effective from the beginning of the preliminary diet until approximately 4 months following the final sun treatment. Therefore, the patient must choose between the sun cure remedy and any other healing method. Patients who do not strictly adhere to the sun cure diet regardless of the reason, or patients who do not obtain the proper inner spiritual attitude required for the treatment cannot be completely healed through the sun cure, simply because half measures do not produce results. Smoking of any kind is totally prohibited during the cure.
Sun cure remedies that are properly developed retain their effectiveness for several years provided they are stored in closed containers that are efficiently sealed. Only the blood remedy becomes less effective after 12 to 18 months.
To avoid loss of energy, the sun cure remedy containers should be opened just prior to usage and considerable temperature variations between storage and administering should be avoided. If it is necessary to examine the remedies, open the containers in the sunlight (in winter behind glass) to avoid losing potency. However, it is better to refrain from opening the containers until they are needed and used.
(from "The Healing Power of the Sunlight")
"Since the physical body is only an instrument, all worldly or physical work is begun and completed with the assistance of a person's spiritual power, also in the sun cure the right application and assistance of the spiritual powers is essential. Hoping and longing is a superficial measure that lacks power, therefore, it cannot be substituted for the proper spiritual attitude when a sun cure is undertaken.
All processes in body, soul and spirit are mutually interactive. If any one of the three aforementioned parts are misused or neglected, then the other two parts suffer also. Only the proper use of all three parts promote true health. Therefore, a proper healing process must take place in the entire person, not just the physical, visible body.
Diseases have their origin in either inner or outer causes. The spirit, depending on the inflow of thoughts, will and actions, influences the soul and through the soul influences the body, therefore the body is dependent on the spirit. Through the power of faith, the proper will of the spirit, soul and body are restored to health. Furthermore, a natural life force which is independent of the spirit is active within the body. Now, this natural life force working in unison with the spiritual primal center, helps the body with all its organs functioning properly, and it continuously strives to correct any disorders arising within the body.
