THE GREAT JUDGMENT – BEFORE THE SECOND COMING OF THE LORD
First aspect of this great judgment is a natural fire, caused by the combustible gases that will be driven from the earth by human activity (GGJ Book 6, 207:12, Book 18, chap. 99:4, Book 20, 34:5-6) and by the destruction of the forests (GGJ Book 12, chap. 4:7) that will destroy many areas over the whole earth leaving only few survivors – but those of the best human quality – as the mentioned excerpts show clearly:
 And at the end of this world-people period - however, not the end of this earth - it will happen as follows: Humans will during that same time, rather not level mountains to the base like the gold and gemstone searching Hanochites did, they will also not be able to antagonize the Romans anymore, however, they will by means of all kinds of machines driven by fire power, begin to drive unbelievable deep shafts and holes into the inner of the earth, whereby the highly flammable gasses push in great masses onto the surface of the earth. And once the atmospheric air is too much saturated with such gasses, it will start to ignite almost around the whole earth and burn everything to ashes. Only a few people will stay alive. However, those who will survive, will be people of the best kind. They will truly inhabit a totally new earth, and you and many who will come and be awakened after you in My name, will be their teachers and leaders. (GGJ Book 6, chap. 207)
 Also a natural fire will at that time devastate many places, for out of extreme worldly greed men - like noxious worms - will be penetrating into the depths of the earth, there to seek - and also find - all kinds of treasures. However, when they will have reached the mighty deposits of the earth's buried forests, which they will be using for firing, the melting of metals and many other things, the final judgment they have prepared for themselves will be at their door.”(GGJ Book 18, chap. 99)
A compromise, partly to adhere to My teaching and partly to rites of obsolete institutions, will not work. I am a spirit, and he who wants to worship Me must do so in spirit and in truth. To worship with truth means: with unshakable faith - with force. And whoever seizes heaven with force shall also take possession of it. [...]
The spiritual wind is blowing. It comes from My heavens in order to cleanse your spiritual atmosphere, which is heavy with all kinds of evil vapours. This spiritual wind is the awakener, purifier and carrier of a new age, so that mankind can be brought closer to its spiritual destination and finally comprehend the meaning of religion in its spiritual sense and what it means to worship Me in spirit and in truth.
Men are still sticking to ceremonies and rites - a sign that they are still very material, that they desire and understand only that which is material. Only when they will be spiritually educated and recognize that I, as a spirit, do not need material expedients in order to be understood by them, when they will realize what spirit and spiritual education actually mean, only then will they also realize how far they have strayed from the right path. (The Lord’s Sermons, chap. 2)
At the present time, however, on the eve of My Second Coming to this earth, men's cultural and intellectual level is quite different. Now I am faced with reasoning philosophers and bookworms, or with fanatical stickers to the word in its literal sense, with people who are too fond of a pleasant life to submit to a religion that demands of them sacrifices and self-abnegation instead of pleasures and entertainment.

Childhood of Jesus – About Christian churches and sects and the Lord’s final true church on earth (chap. 217)
WHEN ALL HAD STILLED their hunger with the well-prepared fish on Joseph's table
2 and the meal was over, Joseph asked James if he could give him a possibly prophetic reason for the at first meager and finally ever so tasty meal?
3 And James answered in a most humble and unassumming manner,
4 'Oh yes, dear father Joseph, insofar as the Lord will give it to me, to that extent will I faithfully tell you what this meal means.
5 So I would ask you to listen attentively!'
6 All now directed their attention toward James, and he began to speak as follows:
7 The poor and meager meal exemplified that future time in which the word of the Lord will be misrepresented.
8 At that time His servants will keep the best part for themselves and will feed their congregations with the husks as the heathen feed their swine.
9 'The Jews will be like the fried sea onion;
10 for although it is a root which grows luxuriantly by the ocean of divine grace and is now being fully roasted at the fire of divine love,
11 it will, for all that, be a poor food and a most scanty fare at the table of the Lord, and no one will reach for it.
12 'The monotonous milk dish will be the Greeks. These will indeed preserve the Lord's word in its true form more than anyone else;
13 but since they will lead only an outward but not an inward life according thereto, They will be lukewarm, unscented and tasteless like this cooked dish which, although it contains the best, life-giving ingredients, is cool and poorly cooked, and thus makes a poor showing on the Lord's table also;
14 for it has no pleasant odour and thus, as in effect raw, also has no pleasant taste for the Lord's palate.
 But since You were now so merciful to inform us beforehand as a sure fact that You personally and lastingly will come to men for a 2nd time to this Earth, then You still could tell us where on this Earth You will come back to men. What will be the name of that country, the place and that happy people?”
 I said: “Friend, on your question I cannot give you an answer that you would understand, for in that time many new places, countries and peoples will arise that still do not have a name now. But the fact that I will come back to Earth to that country and in that place where among the people there will still be the most and greatest living faith and the most and greatest true love for God and fellowman, that you can accept and believe as completely sure and fully true.
 However, when I will come, I will not come alone, but all those who belong to Me, who were already for a long time with Me in My Kingdom of Heaven, will come with Me in multitudes and will strengthen their brothers who are still walking in the flesh on the Earth. And so there will be a true communion between the already blissful spirits of Heaven and the people of the Earth, which will really mean a very great comfort to the people of that time.. (GGJ Book 20, chap. 35)
 After about a quarter of an hour when we all were looking with great interest at the morning scenes, I said again to those who were present: “Be attentive now to all the images that will appear before the full rise of the sun, because I want that you also will see with your eyes how everything will develop during the last time of the new paganism.”
 Now all of them were turning their eyes with doubled attention to the east. It was still quite half an hour before the full sunrise, and thus still many images could develop before the eyes of the disciples who were watching.
 Firstly one could see in the distance a thick and completely black mist arising from the horizon. When this had reached about 7 times the height of the faraway mountain range at the horizon, it soon seemed to glow, because countless flashes of lightning were shooting through it, so that all those who were present, thought that a terrible storm was now raging there.
 However, I said: “You may worry about something else, for apart from us, no one can see anything of this phenomenon.”
 Then they all continued to look on to see what else would follow.
 And look, on the upper black edge of the mass of mist that was completely glowing by the many lightning appeared a big city.
 And I said: “Look at the image of the new Babylon.”

First Sunday in Advent
The Signs of the Future
Luke 21, 25-26: " And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken." (November 23, 1871)
This is that text from the Gospels with which the ecclesiastical year usually begins. It is read to the believers at church every year, explained in one way or another, so as to best serve the preacher's purpose. Even if many of them do speak of signs and miracles, only a few know what these signs actually consist in and in what way they will announce the time to come. Most preachers choose their explanations of this text from the political life thus endeavoring to explain what is spiritual with worldly examples. This is quite as futile an effort as if one would try to explain the spiritual world through the material, whereas it should be the other way round, since the happenings in the world are the result of spiritual upheavals.
Behold, My children, when in those times I spoke of signs and predicted to the Jews the destruction of their temple, only few of them believed My words because they did not know Me. Now, when I am telling you the same, there are quite as many doubters and non-believers expecting the signs from a different side than where they will actually be coming from.

Twenty-Seventh Sunday After Trinity
The Latter Days
Matthew XXIV, 15-28: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: But for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together."
May 4, 1872
This is the last Gospel I shall explain to you. It deals with the latter days of Judaism, also the final conditions among mankind and even the last events at the end of the visible world which, transformed and rising to higher levels, will commence a new cycle.
I once predicted to My disciples the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, the first act of the end of the Jews as a people. They had then lost their importance as a people and were no longer worthy of living together in a country of their own on this earth, after having endeavored to destroy the greatest kingdom that has ever existed, My everlasting Spiritual Kingdom. They had been chosen from the very beginning through their religion and their prophets to become that nation into the midst of which I could descend to the earth, but afterwards they proved themselves quite unsuited to embrace and spread My teaching.
The light of truth was conveyed only to My disciples and a few elect of that nation. The others rejected it and preferred the darkness and sticking to the dead letter, a trait they have not got rid of to this day, although they are compelled to live dispersed among all the other nations.
History tells you clearly how everything I predicted really came true soon after My ascension to My Kingdom. Thus ended with the temple, which spiritually had already been destroyed long ago, the history of a people I had chosen from among many to be the carrier and promoter of My eternal truth.
"Everything that happened in those times, at the beginning of My ministry, My spiritual birth on our earth, will repeat itself now and is already doing so daily. Now, too, there are John the Baptists and Johns as My favourites and apostles, only the procedure of their activity is different. t that time only Moses and the prophets counted with the Jewish people. They were not to be evoked, but their words were to be protected from disparagement - the ore freed from slag - and it as to be proven that I, as Christ, did not want to bring a new teaching, but only wanted to interpret spiritually and apply in practice that which was taken literally.
At the present time, however, on the eve of My Second Coming to this earth, men's cultural and intellectual level is quite different. Now I am faced with reasoning philosophers and bookworms, r with fanatical stickers to the word in its literal sense, with people who are too fond of a pleasant life to submit to a religion that demands of them sacrifices and self-abnegation instead of pleasures and entertainment.
I am now coming again among you people as I did once. "And the light shineth in darkness; and he darkness comprehended it not."
Already for quite a while voices are being heard preaching the need for repentance and the searching of one's soul. The sleeping human spirit is being awakened in many ways. But also today the Johns are preaching mostly to deaf ears. Even those who have established themselves as my representatives on this earth are deaf, often even deafer than the others upon whom they want o impress My teaching. Now, too, these leaders are loosing their followers, who are seeking the light, the Word, as the manifestation of their God, - who are seeking what their own leaders are unable to give them. Thus, there arises a general striving towards the light, towards spiritual life, love and a heart-warming and truly spiritual teaching. There is a spiritual tendency in spite of all he resistance from those who, until now, were only concerned with their own interests. The trend is more and more towards freedom of thought, spiritual freedom. And although the open-minded in your world, with the light of their intellect, do not see the spiritual torch burning above their heads, the dusk of scientific life will soon he dispelled by them, and the "babes" will clearly see hat so far has remained hidden to those who think themselves spiritually mature.
It is again the Word that in the beginning created heaven and earth, as Moses expressed it, the Word as actual life and light beaming from on high and pouring warmth and love into your hearts.
" Because in the distant future I will also awaken helpers and by the spirit in their heart I will dictate to them everything what has happened now and what has been taught since the time that I have began My mastership and made you as My first disciples, and also what will happen next and still a lot of other things. And since this will be possible to Me in the distant future, it will be all the more possible with you to dictate by the spirit of your heart everything which I consider necessary to write down." (GGJ Book 19, chap 27)
In chapter XI/30 all those around the Lord are given a vision of those prophets and angels of the Lord's heavens who in the future will help, together with those here still physically present, to establish the new material and spiritual kingdom. Then the Lord summons John the Baptist and those present learn that John the Baptist will act again as the forerunner to the Lord. To him the Lord now says:
"The people certainly will in your next lifetime care little about your word; but it will be engraved in glowing letters into their souls, so they will feel as soon as they are free of their body. This your word will be My Word, and I shall take to account every one who, having heard it, disregard it!" Then the Lord turns to His own and says: "But you, My beloved and faithful, who are gathered around Me marveling about the things which are now being displayed before your eyes, will form the stock of those comprising the newly chosen nation. You will personally in My name do your part in the founding of the same as a great brotherhood, which gathers strength for great deeds out of My Spirit." (GGJ XI 30) (for more, please see... Who may really be Jakob Lorber)
"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)
"The living word (New Revelation) shall be a fire in the hearts of those who possess it." "All that is human, world-taught word, however, shall be empty, dry straw; and likewise all pulpit speeches." (Himmelsgaben II, p. 198)
72. THE LORD EXPLAINS THE HISTORY OF DANIEL – The fourth animal and actual technology (including Internet)
 Said one of the twenty who was a scribe of the temple: “Lord, since all things are known to You and also are possible for You, You could explain a little to us the Prophet Daniel, especially his seventh chapter! Indeed, this strange seer provides a peculiar explanation about his vision of the four animals, but the explanation is just as vague as the picture he saw which filled the seer with horror. – Could we not receive a closer explanation about this vision from You?”
 I said: “O, certainly; but also for that, this is not the place for it, since these people only know very little or even nothing about our writings. In addition also you have penetrated your, say, transcendental spirit far too little and still have become too little one with it to understand the vision of Daniel and grasp it in its foundation. For even if you narrowly would understand the first two animals, you would not be able to understand the last two, since their being and effectuating is saved for future times. How could one explain to your still natural mind something, which has not even occurred yet on this earth and will only take place after many centuries from now on?
 The only thing I can tell you, is that the four strange animals do not represent four side by side existing kingdoms, of which from the last still ten new kingdoms will arise according to the number of the ten horns, on which still an eleventh horn grew in the center of the head of the animal, causing the tearing out of three of the previous horns from the animal, but rather indicate from the beginning of mankind on this earth four great subsequent people-periods, which studies of the past requires a lot of chronological historical knowledge and for understanding its future a fully opened spiritual eye is needed, which can see beyond time and space in the light of light and life of life.
 See, as such the last animal will have teeth from iron and devour everything around it and the eleventh horn has eyes like human eyes and a mouth and speaks great things!
