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.
 If the mother eats unclean foods, as proscribed through Moses, then the mother should not breast-feed the child but let it be breast fed by someone eating clean food, or she shall have much trouble with the child.
 For this reason, since Abraham, and mainly through Moses, the clean animals and fruits were prescribed to the Jews, and all who kept such commandments conscientiously, never had sick children and achieved ripe old age, dying from old age feebleness.
 In the present time however, when one makes a grab for even the most exotic delicacies, no longer even thinking whether a morsel is clean or unclean, where in some lands almost anything is constantly stuffed into the body that is not either stone or clay, there it is in any case a wonder that blind mankind has not yet sunk back into the animal forms corresponding to what, surely, they already attained in their psyches.
 If, currently, children in their first few years already are stricken with all kinds of maladies, then the obvious cause lies in the most inappropriate nutrition, through which a multitude of evil and unclean spirits are conveyed into the body, which not seldom has to be completely removed for the good of the soul; and therefore nothing but inexcusable parental blindness alone is responsible for the early physical death of the child, because such parents would rather follow anything than the divine advice in the holy Book.
 See, through My angels I undertake an annual thinning out of all fruit trees, from whose fruits men feed, upon which no apple, pear or fruit of any kind whatsoever must ripen, within which during flowering, some unclean spirit has settled in up to the fruit stage. And such fruit is cast down from the tree or bush while still completely unripe.
 Similar care is taken with all types of grains and plants destined for human consumption.
 But blind man not only does not recognize this but, akin to a
polyp, eats everything that seems a tidbit to him. Any wonder that he soon gets sick, sluggish, toilsome, crippled and therefore miserable through and through?
 Therefore also all varieties of so-called potatoes are more than bad, especially for children and breast-feeding nannies, as also for pregnant women, even while coffee is worse still. But blindness sees nothing, avidly consuming both for the pleasant flavor. But children get physically miserable, and in the end the woman and the man. This does not concern the blind: does he not consume poisons far worse? Why shouldn’t he eat these two lesser forms of poison?
 But I intend to once again advise the foods congenial for man’s consumption. If he will heed same, he shall get well, be well and stay well. However, if he does not heed same, then he shall also be ruined, like the savage beast in the desert.
 But now an end of this most essential explanation, and therefore a return to the main theme. (GGJ Book 3, chap. 42)
 THE captain said: “O Lord and Master, do tell us also where such spirits are mostly staying on Earth, so that we more easily can avoid these ominous places and regions. For if one comes in such regions, and he has something in common with such evil spirit it could easily happen that he is seized by him and finally even taken into possession and be harmed, which is truly not desirable.”
 I said: “Friend, the one who actively believes in Me and loves Me by doing the works that My love in him is showing him, should not be afraid of that. But men who are still greatly adhered to all kinds of pagan superstition should fear such spirits everywhere and at all times, and they are also already more or less surrounded by them or even possessed by them, for all impure passions of men are stimulated and influenced by spirits who were formerly, during their whole life, controlled by the same impure passions and who surrendered to these with lust and greed.
 Such impure spirits – partly spirits who already lived in this world, but mostly nature spirits who were never begotten in a human body to live in – are everywhere: in the air, on and in the Earth, in the water and in the fire, in stones, metals, plants, animals and also in the blood and flesh of men. That is why people should not eat the flesh of suffocated or impure animals.
 Although, in case of need, the flesh of impure animals can also be eaten, but it first has to be well cleaned, marinated with salt and good herbs, dried by the fire and then smoked with good herbs, in order to free it from the impure spirits.
 The flesh of animals of prey is harmful to human beings, even with all the precaution measures that I advised you, because the impure spirits can never be completely removed
 So also, men should not drink water from impure springs, and they should keep their wells clean, as Moses strictly commanded the Israelites in My name.
 The one who – as far as his body is concerned – will live according to the instructions of Moses will always and everywhere be spared of being possessed by evil and impure spirits. And this all the more sure if he actively believes in Me and My fatherly care, and who will start, do and end everything in My name. But without that, he is at each moment exposed to a thousand dangers of all kinds, unfortunately as a result of his own laziness, ignorance and foolishness.
 If I would not protect, by My angels, those who already from nature have a better attitude and will, there would be only few people on this Earth who would not be possessed. But men should not rely too much on that because My angels do not restrain the will of men. This is also for you something to think about.” (GGJ Book 23, chap. 36)
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.
 This you can easily notice from the fact that the things you say and conclude are clumsy and disconnected webs of thoughts and ideas when you are hungry and thirsty, but when you first eat good, pure food and also drink pure, good wine, the things you say and conclude will in a very short time be of a much different nature. And this is because the soul is then also satiated and strengthened. If you would not take any food and drink for a long time, your thinking, speaking and concluding would be very poor.
 Once the food has delivered its important part to the body, to its nerves and to its soul, the actual impure part of the matter that you took to enliven your body, is removed from the body by the 2 natural paths. However, if a person becomes a glutton in every respect and has made his belly as his idol, then the food that was taken, as well as the too much wine that was poured into the stomach, cannot be completely separated in the 2 stomachs, which I explained. By that, still many more parts, which have to enliven the body, the nerves and the soul, but which were not extracted from the food, come into the big belly and the intestines and for another part via the liver and the spleen in the urine bladder. There they will again cause fermentations out of which in the course of time will develop all kinds of sicknesses for the body, and which will make the soul lazy, dull and insensible.
 However, out of those bad elements, another bad thing will often result from that. Because when the bad, still unfermented nature spirits from the atmosphere of such person will clearly
notice that in his belly and his lower body already a great number of nature spirits have gathered who are related to them, they will soon penetrate the body of such person and unite themselves with those similar spirits in the body.
 Once this has happened, things look already very bad for such person. Soon a number of difficult to heal or incurable diseases will seize not only his body but also his soul, and he, being made very weak and lazy in himself, cannot avoid that they pass into his sensual and suffering flesh.
 To avoid that a soul becomes completely materialistic, there are no other means than the big diseases of the body itself. Such a person looses then every lust for food and tries to remove the old filth from his body by means of drugs. Here and there he will reach a kind of healing but never completely, and such person only has to be a little forgetful and he will have enlivened his former tormenting spirits again, and his second suffering condition is then usually worse than the first one.
 But all this is not the only bad condition which man has caught because of his lust for food and drinking. A third much worse one comes with it, and this consist of so-called ‘being possessed’ by one or several really evil spirits who shortly or longer ago have really lived their life in a body of some person for the trial of their freedom.
 No earthly doctor can free people from this third evil, but only I and the one who received from Me the power and might for it. (GGJ Book 24, chap. 91)
The healthy foods
 SO if man wants to stay completely healthy in body and soul, from childhood he must moderately nourish himself with pure food.
 Look at Me. I am also a human being for what My body is concerned, but I eat and drink always the same food and quench My thirst with pure, good and healthy wine, but always in the right measure. And what I eat and drink now before your eyes, I already ate and drank in My childhood years, as well as most of My disciples here who were almost all fishermen and lived from fish.
 When they had a surplus of fish they caught, they received money, and with that they bought the necessary clothes, bread, salt and also wine which they drank in moderation with water, and ask them if one of them was ever tormented by a sickness, except the one who I do not wish to specifically indicate to you.
 I say to you: if people would have stayed with the food that was indicated by the prophet Moses, the doctors with their medicines would never have had any work to do for them. But they began to stuff their body – just like the pagans in the manner of the epicures – with hundreds of different so-called delicacies and by that, after a short time, they fell into all kinds of sicknesses.
 A good kind of fish that stays in clean water and that is prepared in the manner as we have eaten is the healthiest food for the human body.
 Where such fishes cannot be found, wheat and barley bread are in itself the healthiest food for humans, as well as the milk from healthy cows, goats and sheep. Among the pulses, lentils are in first place, and, like with the preparation of pulp, the big Persian maize grain. Only the flesh of a few chickens and doves, then of a healthy and clean bovine animal, and also of goats and sheep, in a completely bloodless condition, can be eaten as food – fried or cooked, but fried is to be preferred to cooked.
 However, the blood of animals should not be eaten by anyone.
 What I told you now is and remains for men the simplest, purest and healthiest food. All the rest – especially when it is eaten in excess – is harmful for man, especially when it is not prepared in such a way that the evil of the nature spirits is completely removed from it.”
 Now the supreme judicial city officer asked Me: “O Lord and Master, then how about the many kinds of very good tasting fruits and roots?”
 I said: “The eatable fruits must in the first place be completely ripe. In that condition they can be eaten with measure. But nevertheless, it is healthier when they are in a cooked, fried or
dried form than raw, because by the boiling, frying and drying the bad and still unfermented nature spirits of life are removed from them. It is the same with roots.
 You know the fruits and the roots that are good for men’s consumption. However, the hungry and gluttonous people will not be satisfied with that, but they constantly still discover a great number of things to eat, from the plant kingdom as well as from the animal kingdom, and the results of this are the ever increasing, most various physical sicknesses.
 Based on what I have told you now, you will be able to conclude with little effort for yourself that for Me it is actually one and the same thing to, by My will, provide a field with some kind of grain, fill your granaries with already ripe grain or to put a prepared bread before you or anyone (GGJ Book 24, chap. 92)
 I SAID: “Precisely what you just said. That which is fresh and well prepared and which goes inside through the mouth does not defile man, and will also never harm his health when taken in moderation. But man should not eat anything of the meat of suffocated animals, which is common among many gentiles, because in the blood of animals certain unfermented nature spirits are swarming which are for the physical nature of man almost like poison and will therefore also poison man’s blood, will make him sick very quickly and he will not be able to do his work.
 Look, after the fermentation process when there are no more impurities in it, the wine is very much advised for everyone to strengthen his body, internally as well as externally. But when one
drinks the young must out of which the impure nature spirits are still not removed through fermentation, then that drink is harmful to him. That is why only old and pure wine should be drunk and the must should be kept till it is considerably purified and has become at least 2 to 3 years old. (GGJ Book 25, chap. 22)
When all the aforementioned had arrived in Lamech's house, Lamech asked Enoch if it was not time for taking a meal.
2. And Enoch replied to Lamech: "Brother, your nature desires it in keeping with your old habit; thus let it be done according to your desire. But do not worry about us as we do not feel the need for a meal as yet, for we are still more than appeased by the Lord's great love and grace, which fell to our share so abundantly on this day.
3. "For behold, man does not live alone from the material bread, but rather from the Word of God.
4. "When you eat the material bread and are thereby appeased and nourished, ask yourself: 'Why and how did the material bread or the material food as such appease and nourish me?',
5. "And you will receive this always valid answer within you: 'Because also the material food issues from the eternal, almighty Word of God.'
6. "Now look, if already the consolidated and firmly imprisoned Word of God appeases and nourishes, how much more will the free, unfettered, living Word, directly from the mouth of God, be able to achieve.
7. "We ourselves have issued from God's Word, and thus there can be for us nothing more nourishing and appeasing forever than this very living Word of God.
8. 'Thus man does not live alone from bread and other material food, but rather from every Word issuing from God's mouth.
9. "This does not mean that man shall not enjoy the natural food, for God created it for this purpose and has even eaten it with and before us visibly; only it must not become our main need.
10. "Look, Lamech, also this is comprised by the order of divine things.
11. "But I tell you: Be always moderate in the enjoyment of natural food; for in it lies a great temptation.
12. "You can fully believe me: Eating the natural bread and the fruits of the soil we must take great care not to smother the immortal spirit through their gross sensual encumbrance.
13. "For you can already clearly see with greedy children how through this very greediness they become stupid and no longer capable of any spiritual achievements while the more moderate children soon turn into fine thinkers.
14. "Just as this is visibly the case with children, it is even more the case with the adult human who is capable of fully developed passions still alien to the child.
15. "I tell you, dear brother Lamech, in the natural food you take in what is natural, and this is not spiritualized in you, for it makes your spirit more material; but in the Word you imbibe what is spiritual and this appeases, nourishes and strengthens the spirit for eternal life.
16. “With the natural food the body is nourished but the spirit is oppressed and coerced to fast; but through the spiritual food both gain: The spirit becomes strong and mighty and its senses become infinitely acute, and the body becomes through the spirit supple, moderate, enduring and stays strong like a well-woven garment made from fine, but all the more tough and strong threads.
17. "In the material food there are wicked spirits and once man has taken in too many of them they become master of his own spirit, undermining its essence just as the wicked beetles and worms undermine a tree destroying its essence and finally ruining it completely.
18. “The spiritual food, however, is to the spirit a reviving rain from heaven, under which very soon it will bloom into a gloriously strong and sweet smelling flower of eternal life. (HHG vol. 2, chap. 245)
