H i l d e g a r d v o n B i n g e n, the great German prophetess of the 12th century, the "prophetissa teutonica" (1098-1179 A.D.) in her work "Liber Divinorum operum" (Book of Divine Works) which has arisen in the years 1163-1173, has already announced, approximately 700 years before its arrival, the "New Gospel of John...which had not yet been revealed and which would be the beginning of another work." Here it can only be unequivocally meant the "Great Gospel of John" which the Lord has dictated to his scribe, Jakob Lorber, from 1851 till 1864, since John's Gospel in the Bible has already been a part of it for a long time (the Bible is known in its present context since the 4th century A.D., especially since the Council of Nicea, around 325 A.D.)
Hildegard von Bingen writes about it in the above-named work (Book of Divine Works), as follows:-
"The mentioned vision (vision about the world - revelation) taught me the words and the content of this Gospel, which is about the beginning of the work of God (see the New Testament, Ch. 1 Verse 1 of St. John's Gospel, likewise the Great Gospel of John, Jakob Lorber, Ch. 1: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word. The same was in the beginning with God."), and gave to me the understanding for it. And I received insight that this explanation must be, at the same time, the start of another work which was not yet revealed. In it many questions and the mysterious order of God's creation shall be examined."
In other places, in countless writings and letters, Hildegard von Bingen has stressed again and again, that the "vision" was not invented by herself, nor devised or influence by another person, and that moreover, the sense of the writings has suddenly unlocked itself to her in visions and locutions (viz. Schipperges, Muenchen, 1985).
Further, Hildegard reports how she was innerly and physically affected by this "vision.:
"My interior was shaken by this vision, and the senses of my body failed, since my knowing was changed into a completely different manner, as if I didn't know myself anymore. And just like soft raindrops it dropped down from the inspiration of God into my awareness, just as the Holy Spirit has bedewed the Gospel of John, as he received, at the breast of Jesus, that mightily-deep revelation, i.e., that in the beginning was the Word" (viz. Schipperges, Muenchen, 1985).
Who does not recognize immediately the complete surrender and transformation of the soul (of the seer, of the returning child or son of God) in Spirit (in Father), the victory and conquest of the material (the fleshly) through the Spirit.
Since after the time of Hildegard von Bingen no other "new" Gospel of John has become revealed than that of the greatest prophet and seer after Christ, Jakob Lorber, can we not therefrom conclude, without doubt, that the prophetic precursor of Jakob Lorber, the "prophetissima teutonica", has been allowed to foresee the "7" (!) centuries later-appearing great revelation of Lorber (here the Gr. Gospel of John).
Who does not recognize and feel at the same time the great grace which the Holy Father gives out of His very great love to his children continually, at all times, and in every century. Yet, regrettably, most of these children still act like the guests invited by the King to the Wedding Feast(Matt. 22 V. 1 on). In spite of repeated loving invitation to the Wedding Feast, they follow first their worldly business and interests which then leaves them no time for the spiritual and which drown the mild and tender call of the Father of Love in the heart.
May God give us that we wear the wedding garment when the King (the Lord) comes to look at the guests (us).
