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.
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.
