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)
(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.
" But I said: “Yes, yes, such a wine is a strengthening drink, but only when it is taken with moderation and on time. But for those who are immoderate in drinking wine and get drunk, it is then no more a strengthening drink but a drink that weakens his whole body. Therefore, always drink this drink with moderation in My name, and then it will also strengthen you for the eternal life of the soul. But in the immoderate usage of this drink, the evil spirit of lewdness and fornication lays hidden. This spirit does not awaken the soul to life, but makes him dead for the true spirit of life from the Heavens and makes the spiritual rebirth of the soul in the spirit from the Heavens nearly impossible on this Earth. Do also remember that.” (GGJ Book 19 chapter 23)
"What you wish to know is, in one respect [practically] a minor thing, as it is in the opposite [spiritual] manner not exactly of great importance. For example, take a tree that has drawn out of the soil some vile, spoiled, and against-its-nature not congenial sap. Soon, you will notice that the leaves of the tree come forth malformed and withered, and moreover its sprigs, branches, and trunk are surrounded by all kinds of unpleasant and parasitic plants. If someone only has superficial knowledge of arboriculture, he will, with certainty, come to the conclusion that a grafting with other sicker and weaker plants will definitely not make the tree well, but in the end, one will totally destroy the other.
Or, if someone who already has poison in his body or who had poison administered, that he will get well through the same poison that already took three-quarters of his life. Then the additional administering of the same poison will be sufficient to take the last quarter of the already poisoned human being.
Is it not obvious that with the tool of death, you never fight against death, instead, you fight at all times only against life?
"Every kind of unnatural death is an act of violence, and through this act occurs a decomposition of a large amount of specifica which, during the quiet life of the animal, harmlessly slept and was bound in the body and in the blood of the animal. This is how I organized the life of an animal. Through a violent death, the blood as well as the flesh is being changed. Processes occur which are partly being removed through the cleansing process of the fire during cooking and roasting, but they are never totally eradicated. It is, indeed, thankful that after ingestion, the body immediately reacts with particular emerging ailments, especially after eating the flesh of wild animals killed in fear and excitement.
A much deeper reason regarding meat-eating lies in the fact that animals of any kind and species are just as different in this disposition as are human beings. Because, there are peaceful and vicious, quarrelsome and good-natured animals, it is therefore self-evident that the flesh of one animal must be quite different than the flesh of another.
Whosoever is capable of abstaining from eating meat, or eats it in moderation, protects himself in this manner from a multitude of spiritual specifica, or elements, whereas another human being thoughtlessly fills his stomach with it. As far as the spirit is concerned, through vegetarianism, he provides the soul with a healthy body, while another human being is prone more to ailments and maladies, wherein the cause presents a puzzle.
"Impure spirits, partly those who already once lived in the flesh in this world, but for the greater part those nature-spirits which have never been begotten in human flesh, are everywhere-in the air, upon and in the earth, in the water and in the fire, in stones, metals, plants, animals, and also in the blood and flesh of human beings. This is why human beings should not eat the flesh of suffocated and unclean animals.
In an emergency, the flesh of unclean animals can be eaten, but first it must be well-cleansed and marinated in salt and good herbs. Then it should be smoked in good herbs, in order that the flesh is free of unclean spirits.
The flesh of predatory animals is harmful for human beings, regardless of all My advice in respect of the aforementioned precautions, since the unclean spirits can never be entirely removed from this flesh.
Human beings should also not drink water from unclean springs, and they should keep their wells clean, just as Moses strictly ordered the Israelites to do in My name.
 I said: “Of all vices the most evil is prostitution, fornication and all kinds and variations of lewdness. It is, however, idleness, disdainfulness and haughtiness which induce the people to this vice. Because haughtiness does not respect anything; but looks for all available means to satisfy its carnal passions.
 If then such a man begets children, what miserable and with many ailments afflicted people thereby enter this world! This sin is, therefore, a main source of the worst afflictions in this world.
 However, there are also gluttony and revelry, anger and various resentments, vices through which all sorts of ailments develop in men, tormenting them in the most miserable manner.
 Did I not say, after I had healed him, to the sick man in Jerusalem who had waited a full 38 years at the pool Bethesda to be healed: ‘Go and sin no more, lest you suffer something worse?’ His bad gout was, therefore, also an outcome of his many previous sins. And this applies to nearly all those who were healed by Me. Had they never fallen ill through their many sins, their souls would have perished. Only a rather serious and painful illness sobered them up and showed them how the world rewards those who worship it. Through their illness they lost their love for the world and longed to be soon set free from it. Thereby their soul became freer and the healing of their body occurred also at the right time.
