“If you have a chance of passing on My teaching to someone, your reward shall be that he accepts it with a joyful heart and lives according to it.” (GGJ VI/92)
"As long as My teaching that has been given to you now will not have made good progress, by violence there is not much that can be done against the European spooky nests. But the best way against such extremely deceitful nonsense is the information that you can give to the better part of the people, because once they will very well know what these things really are, then the rabble will soon know it also and that is then the quickest and most important method to drive such evil spirits of flesh and blood out.
 He who wants to catch birds should not start to hit directly into the bushes with clubs, but he should first spread out the nets and only then throw the clubs into the bushes, then a lot of birds will catch themselves at the same time into the nets." (GGJ, Book 18, chap. 87.About the ruins where ghosts are)
"I am giving it to you in order to set a new corner and boundary stone for the world. Many shall fall over this, for they do not follow the way of humility, utter self-denial, patience, gentleness and great love that is shown in it." (Himmelsgaben I p. 390)
“However, if you, my dear child, in hours of solitude will scrutinize this matter earnestly, i ask you this: has it never struck you as strange that, despite all the calamities of human life, other sentiments, other emotions often asserted themselves within you, which did not always express disgust and despair, but which revealed more gentle, more consoling aspects of spiritual life to you?
Have you never felt compassion, never an urge to look upward? Have you never felt the gentle sentiment of love in your heart with which you, forgiving the whole of mankind, could still love them?
Have you never, when witnessing a great natural phenomenon or gazing in the stillness of the night up into the starry heaven, sensed a holy foreknowledge which, had you responded to it, would have lifted you up into higher spiritual spheres where the human bustle would have disappeared, making way for a more beautiful, gentler feeling, the feeling of forgiveness and love!
Did not in such moments your god appear to you in a better light than as the dead science taught you, saving he ruled as an implacable tyrant? I know only too well that there were many such moments that seized your heart; only you did not want to listen to them.” (Secrets of life, 12)
Education Of Humanity (Fundamental Teachings)
Necessity of a proper development of the intellect
Lord’s advice of the necessity of a proper development of the intellect. Examine everything and retain what is good and true
4. Say I, 'You I have prepared through word and teaching. When I came to you a few days ago you took Me for a very wise and highly accomplished physician and when you saw Me accomplish unusual deeds, you began to take Me for a prophet through whom God's Spirit acted. But being a man of much experience, you felt prompted to find out how I had achieved such perfection. Thereupon I revealed to you what man is and what is in him, besides what can become of man when he has fully recognised himself, achieving fullest life-liberty of his spirit therewith!
5. But then I also showed you how God Himself is a Man and whence you too, as well as all beings like you, also are men. I then also showed you confidentially that I Myself am that Man and that every man is called to become and be forever what I Myself am. You were astonished, knowing from then on Who I am.
6. And behold, this was a purposeful preparation of your soul and spirit, so that you could now watch Me create an earth, or men from stones, without being harmed. Because you accepted freely, and that in a fully scientific way, that God can be a Man and man can be a god! And so it can no longer trouble your soul and spirit to fully comprehend that I alone am the One true God and Creator of all things from eternity.
The cause of anxiety
"Nothwistanding all his feelings of mortality, no human soul can be considered as completely dead, but still, it is a real death of the soul if he lives in the constantly increasing fright to soon lose his life that became so pleasant to him, or to grievously have to spend his life eternally in a dark dungeon, without hope to ever be freed out of it.
But do you know what it is, that calls up such a feeling in the souls of the mostly material, selfish and proud heathens, and why they then also pursue all kinds of possible pleasures and diversions, only to get rid as much as possible of this feeling of mortality which displeases them above all?
Look, the love for the world and matter brings this about. As long as a soul clings to the possessions and riches of this world and considers them as his complete property by virtue of law, and therefore punishes every person who in case of need because of his poverty would violate it or has violated it once, he will not be able to completely ever get rid of this feeling, neither in this nor in the other world, for all matter is judged and thus death regarding the free spirit. But if a soul clings to dead matter, he can therefore also have no other feeling than only that of death.
Animals, God's unspoiled creatures witnessed His birth on Earth
“Neither emperors nor kings witnessed My birth, not even ordinary people, but only animals unspoilt creatures.
The census was responsible for Mary's journey to Bethlehem in order to bring about that which would honour the King of all creation. Millions of superior spirits sang the hymn of praise: "Glory to God in the highest and peace on earth to all men of good will!" These and the animals, as they had gone forth from My hand, were present at My birth. Such witnesses were befitting to Me, the Lord of the heavenly hosts, wrapped in swaddling clothes. “ (Sermon 6 – The Lord’s Sermons)
The truth about the animal world and the cruelty of humanity towards it
"If you could see the spiritual world with spiritual eyes, you would shrink back in horror before many an action, for you people, who fancy yourselves as rational, commit so many cruelties another, lower being must suffer in silence because it was not endowed with a language to express joy and sorrow through sounds.
Look at the eternal battle of the elements with the hard rock, at the life of the plants and the life of the animals, which also carry spiritual sparks within. They all must battle, must suffer, and superficial man alone has no right to complain that this earthly life is a life of deception and illusion, arid that it is often not worth the effort to live just for the sake of suffering!

Love for the fellowman
 What good would it do you before Me if you were struck with amazement at My power, greatness and unfathomable majesty, but outside your house there were poor brothers and sisters crying from hunger, thirst and cold? How miserable and useless would be a loud bawling and a praising and glorifying of God which would drown out the misery of the poor brothers. What good are all the rich and most lavish sacrifices in the temple while a poor brother dies of hunger at its door?
 Therefore, investigate first of all into the misery of your poor brothers and sisters; give them help and comfort. Then you will find more in one brother whom you have helped than by having traveled to all the stars and praised Me with the tongues of the Seraphim.
 Truly, I tell you, all angels, all heavens and all worlds with their wisdom cannot give you in eternity what you can attain by truly helping with all your might and with all you have to help a brother who is in misery. Nothing is higher and closer to Me. than alone the true, active love.
 If, while praying to God, you do not hear the plaintive voice of your poor brother who came to you for help during your praying hour, cursed be then your empty bawling! My glory consists in love - not in the idle bawling of your mouth.
"If you love God above all according to My teaching and thus, one another as yourselves in every respect, you will never have to complain among each other about any want; for want and poverty among the man of this earth are only the outcome of their lack of love for each other."(GGJ IX, 20:4)
"You should not despair at any ever so untoward occurrences on this earth. For the Father in Heaven knows about them and also knows best for what reason He allows them." (GGJ II, 169:11)
" (The Lord:) There are in the world a great many dangers for the soul. On the one hand, you have poverty; its concepts about what is mine and what is thine keep getting vaguer the more a person is troubled by it. Therefore, if you want to walk safely, do not allow poverty to grow too much among the people.

"8] Yes, yes, you ought to lead the people on the way that leads to Heaven, for that is God’s Will, and this, Moses and his brother Aaron ordered. You however do exactly the contrary, and consider your position, GOD, the people, and the Temple, as nothing else but as a very fat cow for milking, to milk which, you pretend alone to have the right from GOD!
9] But I tell you quite frankly that GOD, Whom you deny with every breath and every pulse throb, has never given you this right, neither has HE granted, nor does He grant now, and neither will HE ever grant, your dead and mechanical prayers!
10] For if GOD granted your wild babbling and your raven-like croaking - truly I too should have to know something about it. For what the Father knows, the Son also knows, or: what My love knows, My wisdom also knows! But of ever granting your prayers, neither My love nor My wisdom knows anything at all!
11] And yet you say: ‘If thou, o man, dost pray to GOD for something, it is of no use to thee: if however though givest us an offering, and we pray for thee, then is our prayer of good use to thee! We priests alone may pray effectively, but the people may only give offerings, and thus pray with us by means of the ample offerings!
01] (The Lord:) “There must exist differences among people; but nobody has been placed in this world with such a neglected soul, that it had to become completely matter. Since also not one single human soul has been stuck into the flesh without the free will and individual intelligence.
02] The main reason for the destruction of the human soul lies principally in the original, normally baboon-love upbringing. One let the little tree grow as it grows, and by the untimely pampering and all other things, let the trunk grow askew as possible. Once the trunk has hardened, normally all efforts to make it straight again are of little or no use; an askew grown soul very seldom becomes a completely straight trunk again!
03] Therefore you all should straighten your children during their easily steerable youth, and soon there will nearly nowhere exist such a material soul, which could not understand the spiritual and easily submit itself to right actions on the road of the true life order out of God! Remember this well; because therefore I have shown to you the incarnation of a soul in the womb!
04] A child until the seventh year is still by far more an animal than a human. Since this what is human in a child, lies generally buried in a deep sleep. Because a child is by far more animal than human, it also has many animal-like, but only very few truly human needs.
« 7. Therefore, all of you should not be just idle hearers of My ?Word, but diligent doers, only then will you begin to notice its blessings within you.
8. For life is action and not stagnation of the powers on which life depends. And so life must be preserved even for eternity through the constant activity of all its powers, for in the lying-down-to-rest there is no permanent life.
9. The certain feeling of well-being you gain from rest is nothing else but a partial death of the powers needed for living. The person who then increasingly enjoys the inactive rest, especially of the spiritual life-powers, thereby also slides ever more into the arms of actual death from which no God will easily free him.
10. Oh yes, there does also exist a proper rest full of life, but that is in God and for everyone an indescribably blissful feeling of contentment to be active in accordance with God’s will.
11. The is most blissful feeling of contentment and the clearest realisation to have always truly acted according to the order of God is that proper rest in god which alone is full of life because it is full of energy and respective action. Every other rest that consists in the ceasing of the life-powers is, as already mentioned, an actual death to the point to which the various life-forces have withdrawn from activity and no longer resumed it. Do you understand this?’[…]
