.My name is Alida Pretorius. I am the wife of Louw Pretorius, who is already joined here.
A little background (which should overlap somewhat with hubby's entry email, of course :-)):
We've been on a serious search for TRUTH after immigrating from South Africa to Australia and God impressed upon hubby's heart not to search for a job, He will take care of everything. It was emotionally a rocky road, being used to Mammon's support!
We read, searched, prayed, watched videos, etc for about two years, being desperate for guidance and direction. We come from different denominational backgrounds, both being very sure of having the 'full truth'. We both prayed for each other for 'conversion' to our version of truth for ten years!
Here in Australia - to a great extent isolated from people and becoming even more so as time passed - our desperation grew. Through a prophetic word of a lady we began reading online, God said that some of His children asked for information and He is going to send it and how we will know it is Him sending it, is that it would come through an 'improbable source'. Well, it did come and it was a 'very improbable source'. It was a link to the website of another prophetic lady. We had difficulty working through her writings, BUT somewhere along the line, she had a prayer written up, asking God what the story is about the writings of a man called Lorber. God answered her, saying that all through the ages He had called scribes to record His words, but it is every person's free choice to give attention to it or not.
That got me going. I cannot stand 'secrets', we were desperate - and I love research, so we hunted down Lorber's books, which lead obviously to Mayerhofer, Swedenborg, etc. We downloaded EVERYTHING we could find, bought kindles and began reading. WE FOUND THE ANSWER! We found what we longed for - hubby and I are now together in truth and loosened from both our dogmatic backgrounds
...and everything to do with the love of His love. I have taken a glimpse to His wisdom and seen examples of His power. These are the ones who shake and overwhelm the fragile human heart. But I have also picked up some holy drops of His love, beyond His greatest gift, sign and wonder.
These drops are more precious to me than my life in eternity, for I would gladly give not only this short life, but also an eternal one for just a moment in which I would be one with such one drop and thus, one with Him.
There is a presentiment of the following incredible happiness, that cannot be express in the poor human way of language. Not even the greatest form of art wouldn't help. Only the tears, the sweet river of tears can give a small sign of it.
Oh, yes, Mr. Dawkins and others like him should better discover this before claiming that fear of death turns people into believers. Love of the holy love takes all in the true believer's heart. Consequently, fear of death is out of it and stays out for ever.
May our dear Lord and Father use us to bring His light to all the good and lonely hearts of the people who haven't yet recognized Him! (S.P.)
God is a true God, a loving Father who has never failed to reveal His will to men. Also during the past almost 2000 years His revelations have kept flowing to individual recipients, to men and women who loved Him deeply with all their being and were thus capable of receiving His Word, either through visions or through the Inner Word, or both. These mystics and seers received the pure divine teaching and it was their task to spread it and thereby restore the original teaching to its former purity. But they did not succed because people's minds were held captive through fear and ignorance, and only few benefited from the divine revelations.
The most comprehensive of these revelations was received last century by the Styrian mystic and seer Jakob Lorber through the Inner Word. Born at Kanisha (Austria) on July 22, 1800 as the son of a vineyardist who was in his spare time the leader of a popular band, Jakob Lorber grew up in a poor rural environment, but in a family that was deeply religious and dedicated to music. From his father, Jakob had inherited a versatile musical talent and he early learnt to play the violine, piano and organ. This helped him later to pay for his education, first in Marburg and then in Graz, the Styrian capital, where in 1829 he obtained a diploma as a teacher for intermediate schools. But when he could not find a suitable position, he reverted to his particular love, music. He gave lessons in singing and the violine, practised for hours every day, composed and sometimes gave concerts, alone or together with others. He was succesful, but never to the extent he had hoped for. During the years he devoted to music, Lorber followed also his inclination to deepen his spiritual understanding, diligently studying the Bible as well as the works of men who followed the "inward path", among others such mystics as Jakob Boehme and Emmanuel Swedenborg.
Thoughtful man, however much he may be involved in the affairs of the world, is always longing for clarity about those things we rightly feel to be the actual permanent foundation of our existence. The points in question are: God, creation, man, destiny, and the world beyond, and still today they resist all our efforts to gain true clarity about them.
As far as intellectual knowledge goes, many things regarding the natural world have been discovered during the past century. The result was an unprecedented technological development and a thriving economy.
But has man thereby become wiser, better and happier? No! These findings about nature remained superficial. In the minds of scientists creation became a sense- and soulless mechanism. The whole world, deprived of spirit and God, broke down in the catastrophe of two world wars released through mankind´s unrestrained tyranny and selfishness. The intellect, this scrappy, superficial faculty of perception, has truly ruined the cultural world. If a development ends in evident madness, in wars of robbery and destruction, there must somewhere be a fundamental error.
For the benefit of all mankind, every living being has in his soul, in addition to the outward light of intellect, also another, inner light, a spiritual faculty of perception by which a higher impulse speaks to him. Poets, artists, inventors, ingenious thinkers call it their inspiration, their genius. Seers and prophets perceive it as an inner voice of God. And even in the animal it manifests miraculously in the instinct.

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."
from the German magazine"Das Wort", 3rd issue, May/June, 1978 (48th year) - english translation by Lucy Daugalis)
Now, there are, in the history of religions and also of Christianity, many prophets and founders of religions who refer to an inner voice and a mission and to which, as a Catholic, one must take a skeptical stand. Jakob Lorber, however, cannot be fitted into this category. There are many convincing signs for the authenticity of his manuscript as being an actual revelation of God.
Firstly, Lorber has not exploited that which he wrote down in any way during his life, either spiritually or materially. He didn't engage in preaching, neither did he draw any income from it. His manuscripts stayed completely unknown in his environment; with the exception of a few friends, even long after his death. Anyhow, they would have been largely incomprehensible to the people of those days.
Secondly, among other things, a hundred years before, Lorber had already made various scientific declarations upon decisive areas, which have become discovered and confirmed by the official science only a few decades ago. Thus he described , in order to name a few of the most important examples only, the structure of light, the structure of the cosmos, with its milliards of galaxies (recognized only after the construction of the 5m. telescope on Mt. Palomar, in 1949), radiotelegraphy, the aeroplanes, etc. He had moreover, also unequivocally predicted today's pollution and destruction of the environment and their effects. It is absolutely impossible that this information of Jakob Lorber could arise from his own personal spirit.
However, all these signs are actually only by-products of the phenomenon of Jakob Lorber. What has fascinated me most, and in a certain manner convinced me, is the overpowering and all-embracing world panorama, which opens up in his information.It was as if suddenly the scales fell from my eyes, and all my open and unsolved questions which to me, as a philosophically inclined person, thus one who goes to the cause of the problem, remained in connection to my faith, were suddenly solved.
Our challenges in these troubled End Times are greater than ever... Many people are increasingly eager for spirituality but usually just stick with the mixture of superstition and truth given by institutionalized religions or chose some good looking, but very dangerous New Age stuff. To get them out of their preconceptions in order to have at least a small glance to the overwhelming picture of the divine love given in the New Revelation, might require unusual patience and diplomacy.
To make them understand that behind the "contracts with God" offered by the priests or behind the compassionate communication of a "Galactic Federation representative", stands a very clever algorithm to develop the ego and block any true feelings of love for the only Lord and God of creation, might be one very difficult enterprise. So, we might try to practice more often this art of gently guiding the souls toward the Lord, using no other miracle but the greatest one, which, according to Himself, is exactly this direct word of His.
For we know well that it's not us, Christians, our neighbourly love, our life example or our spiritual knowledge that will ever convince a non-believer, but only the Father, God's love that will attract such a heart to Him. The seeker can find this divine love in the Scriptures, but even more, much more in the New Revelation. His inner deepest love, once awaken, will surely recognize it.
The fatal compromise made for the sake of glory and material welfare is for eternity represented by the story of Judas’ betrayal.
As we know from the final part of the Great Gospel of John, Judas was truly seeking for social justice for his Jewish fellowmen, but also for the promotion of his own self-image as a co-savior of them and, eventually, of the entire world.
Seeing that the Lord doesn’t show any intention of changing the worldly order of things, he judged Him as weak, unable to use His godly power and tried to force Him to reveal His power in front of the people and authorities of Jerusalem. And how could he reveal it more obviously than in the case in which His own life would have been at stake? Surely, this is exactly what Judas would have done in such a terribly unjust and dangerous situation. Although he knew the Lord, he could not imagine (and Satan sustained him in his worldly blindness) that He would freely chose to give Himself as a living sacrifice, as an atonement for the sins of all people. But this is what He did, the greatest possible act of His infinite mercy and thus, gained infinitely more, not only for all the humanity ever, including His blind enemies, but also for His entire spiritual creation.
The lie is fundamentally an instrument of self-protection and self-promotion. We can never forget about our own self-interests when we lie… A strategy of the mind trying to defend or promote of our self-interests is the real cause of the lie. We see the truth, but choose to affirm the false, for it is in our self interest. Some might observe that there are certain exceptions here – such as having recourse to a lie for the sake of saving somebody who, if the truth would be revealed, should have to pay much for it, eventually, with his own life… This is indeed very convincing…
We can point here the example of many good people who, when dealing with the Nazi hunting of Jews in Europe in the WW2, have lied that they are not aware of any Jews around, while hiding ones, in their own cellars…
But suppose that the teaching of the NR would not have been given for the purpose of serving the selfish interests of their real author, but for the purpose of preserving the life of humanity. The author then lied attributing his words to God, only in order to impose a teaching of love and compassion that the morally disturbed people will accept on the ground of GOD’S supreme authority. But such compliance would then be achieved by appealing to people’s self-love, which gives them the urge of preservation and the fear of self-loss. Still, the realities of life and history show us that people really complying to a teaching of love and compassion are not doing it from self-interest, nor from fear, but from an unselfish love, which responds to that teaching, acknowledging without any other demonstration, its inner truth. A hidden, but powerful love lying in the inner man urges his mind to recognize the truth of the teaching of love as an undeniable fact. In other words, Love recognizes love as the only possible truth and then accepts as truth, everything that comes from love, meaning, the wisdom or self-awareness of love and the will or the actions of love.
This recognition performed by the man’s inner love which naturally bonds to an image of God as eternal love, is the “mechanism” of any real conversion to Christianity. This requires no other condition from man, but that of being able to love: to love someone else at least as much as himself.
The good parent is already fulfilling this condition, for he loves his children more than he loves himself. The real lover, also, for he would gladly give his own life for the one he loves. If such people are not yet true lovers of God, this is due to the fact that they do not yet have the appropriate knowledge of Him. They are born and raised outside of the Christian influence or, even if they have some knowledge of the Christian teachings, still stumble and fall because of the contradictions and the fearful affirmations they found and could not accept, in the Scriptures.
For it is extremely hard to recognize the God of love and truth, a most loving Father of all men, while, as it can be read in the Old Testament: He preaches revenge and orders the destruction of the ennemies; He orders the capital punishment for a great number of sins which are today completely tolerable in our societies; He indicates as a rightful destiny for the sinners after death, an eternal and hopeless life of torture and pain. It is also extremely hard to admit the existence of a loving and caring God, while seeing that He lets so many good people and innocent children suffer incredible hardships on this earth and in the end, an agonizing, cruel death, while allowing many evil sinners to enjoy a long, healthy life, in which they continue to corrupt and affect innocent lives around them…
It’s not easy for a lot of good people to understand how a God of infinite love and mercy allows so much injustice and undeserved suffering in the world, while He affirms that not a sparrow falls from the sky without His Knowledge?
But the teachings of the NR do not let unexplained any of these appearant paradoxes. The way of God with His human children becomes understandable, from the perspective of an all-encompassing love which looks not after the temporary material welfare of man, but after his eternal spiritual evolution which can unfold only in a state of absolute freedom of choice. No matter what the temporal costs of this may be, they are always compensated by God through spiritual, eternal gifts already here and infinitely more, in the beyond, in people’s true life, as free spirits.
Acknowledging the New word of God, everything comes to make sense not only in the Christian Scriptures, but also in the natural world and in our earthly experiences At any honest examination, we have in the NR a teaching which is fully consistent and logic, which is able to explain every important question of life, which promotes unselfish love and all derived moral qualities, which assumes a purpose for any existence, no matter how humble, and an incredibly great purpose for us, humans, as children of God. We have in the NR a new, great and clear Christian Scripture, in which not even the old parables, once necessary in order to ensure the conservation of spiritual truth, do not remain unexplained… for it is written that in our times, a more knowledgeable and human mankind is already able to deal with the unveiled Godly truths, as once was the case with only the few true followers of Christ. So… what can this teaching ever have to do with even the smallest lie, cover-up or dissimulation?
Do you understand? Is not that the human mind cannot imagine a hidden agenda in any situation, because for the mind alone, nothing is unconceivable… It is just that the inner man who is the real human in us, the one really able to love, turns the balance on the side of love… and so, the whole man, while listening to love, also discovers the only possible truth in its words.
That’s why we strongly believe that any loving person, if taken the time to get familiar with the teaching of the NR, will surely recognize in it the ultimate, undeniable truth of all existence. This is not different from what happened with the many believers, according to the Christian Scriptures, during the last 2000 years. However, there is immeasurably more from God in His direct word from the NR, than in all the words of old prophets and apostles… and that’s why it is not only a most great wonder and blessing for the disciple, but also a duty for him to share it with the many, of any faith and nation, who still do not know their creator and do not trust and love Him as a true Father. (S.P.)
150 years ago, a “madman” wrote 12 – 13.000 pages about God, Universe, earth, humanity… and 37 pages about health.
As a matter of fact, after I have finished those 13.ooo. I thought I might have to start with something… So I went, by foot, in Romania, to Aurelia.
(n. webmaster: see also NR Therapies Blog )
Then I started producing healing remedies, according to what was written in those 37 pages, following the idea that if they turn to be real and efficient, then the rest of the teaching should be so too… and indeed, they proved to be true.
My advice for you is to read all that was written in the New Revelation, but then, to begin acting accordingly… When one just reads, but doesn’t do anything, he cannot be guided from above. The true acts are only those guided from above and as I am concerned, I came to achieve many things starting from nothing, without asking any support from people or even God. I believe there is no use of saying “Jesus, help me do something…”, but just stay open to His guidance, because He Himself asks us to help Him, for our own sake and for the sake of all others around us.”
Roxy 11 years:
To me, it seems quite normal for a child to read “The Childhood of Jesus”… I liked the book in itself… especially the fact that the Lord performed miracles ever since He was a small child. Such a book can make children to behave better with each other… For the moment the other (Lorber) books appear to me as difficult… but still, I think that everybody should read them.”
Sanda, Roxys mother:
“I always felt in my heart that what is written in the New Revelation’s books is true; what I have read touched me deeply, made me cry. I read these books again and again… as if I would not need anything else in the world…
I didn’t find the Lord’s Love in the church, because He is presented there as a judge. Still, I kept on searching… and indeed, I finally found. I found My Father and I found my meaning.
