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.
There was a discussion on Facebook when, replying to the promotion of a Krishnamurti video, I dared to affirm that something coming from a human teacher cannot be better than something coming from God...:-)
The very interesting answer of a young lady to my further recommendation of seeking a teaching of God in the New Revelation (which indeed, fully confirms the Christian Scriptures) was...
”I never liked theories that rule out a great number of people. Christianity is born out of war and hate (Old Testament)...thus either it's a manufactured religion for economic purposes, either it has great issues in promoting peace, altruism and compassion of others. So let’s leave those who promote theories which splits people in believers (good) and non-believers (bad) based on their culture and religion, to those who seek war and hate. But this guy, on the other hand, speaks of all people...because fundamentally we are all the same, have a sole creator and fell love in the same way, regardless of religion, culture or race. He (Krishnamurti) is just a teacher, one who doesn't speaks in the name of any religion, but in the name of Truth and of love and other qualities which enlighten people, the more they accept them as way of life. There are few like him in the world, and I greatly hope there will be more like him in the future, because without teachers like him, our civilization will have no more guides. Love him, love you all.”
However, what was once said by the Lord is eternally true… So, maybe the Christians (who are now, before His Second Coming, His people, the new Jews of the humanity) would do well to meditate more on His own known words from the Scriptures, when dealing with the New Revelation:
“For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” (Matt 13:15) and “And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”(Matt 12:32)
So, to speak against Jesus Christ and implicitly against Christianity can be forgiven, but to speak against the spirit of love, thus to oppose it, cannot ever be… For to be against love means already to condemn yourself in your heart, to put yourself willingly outside the universal order of God and ultimately, to fight against your own fundamental life.
However, by reading the New Revelation, one can understand, in full consistency with the Scriptures, the human nature, its liberty, the influence of sin on it, and thus, can obtain not only a great perspective of the historical natural and spiritual development of mankind, but also, a clear and detailed representation of the things that God expects us to do for ourselves and, most of all, for our brothers in need.
