" I said: “There is still much darkness in all of you. The One who has sent Me is My eternal Father and is in Me, and so I have, from My love for you men, sent Myself into this world in order to bring and to give you eternal life.
 However, My Word and My teaching, which shows you the way to eternal life, is the will of the One who is in Me and who has sent Me. For the Father, as the eternal Love, is in Me, and I, as its Light, am within it.
 Just look at the flame of the lamp which burns here on the table. Can you separate the light from the flame or the flame from the light? Now, the flame is that which I call Father and Love, and the Light is His Son, sent by the flame to illuminate the darkness of the night. Are then the flame and its light not one Being? And is the flame then not also in the light as the light is in the flame? And when this is so and could be impossibly otherwise, then the will of the Father reveals itself in the light that emanates from Him.
 Thus, he who walks in this light, walks also according to the will of the One who sent Me as His Light into this world, and he who walks in this light cannot lose his way and must reap eternal life, because the Light, according to which and in which he walks, is the eternal Life itself.
In the beginning was the Word. The Word took on the flesh
" When the captain heard this from Me, he was greatly embarrassed and he did not know what he actually should ask Me. After having thought about it for a while, he said: “Perfectly mighty Master, in what kind of school, which I certainly do not know, were You formed?”
 I said: “In My highest own school. And this from eternity, because before there was any existence in the endless space, was I, for what concerns My most inner Spirit, and I filled the eternal infinity.”
 When the captain heard that, he looked at Me very surprised and said: “Is Your inner being than greater than Your outer being? Your speaking is confused. How must we understand that? What do You mean by that?”
 I said: “The full truth, but since there is until now no truth in you, you also cannot understand this first truth. But listen, I will reveal you more.
 Look, in the beginning of all beginning and for the existence of all existence was the Word. This Word was with God, for God Himself was the Word, and everything which is and which fills the endless space, about which your wise men spoke, was created by the Word, and without that Word, nothing was created.
 Now the eternal Word took on the flesh out of Himself and came now as a human being to His people in this world, and those who are His do not recognize it. And you are also a human being and do not recognize the eternal Word in Me because you are blind of heart. Did you not read the prophets of the Jews?” (GGJ Book 22, 92)
All power in Heaven and on Earth
"And look, this is now how the One to whom all power in Heaven and on Earth has been given out of Himself since eternity, has spoken to you and to all of you who are present here, and therefore you also can believe that I will do everything I have promised."
(48. Instructing the teachers - GGJ Book 20)
My beloved Son
" When I had finished this short speech, a Voice sounded in the space of the hall, and the words sounded like this: “This Jesus of flesh and blood is My beloved Son, whom the whole of humanity should glorify. He is the incarnated expression of My love, My wisdom and My will. I am in Him and He is in Me. We are completely one. He who sees and hears Him, sees and hears also Me. And he who will do My will, will have eternal life in himself.”
(GGJ Book 22, 17)
" The Greek said: “It is strange that you as a Jewish scribe want to give your conclusion in this manner while the born Child and the given Son, whose great name was openly spoken out by the prophet, is unmistakably standing here in person, in word and actions before us. As a Human Being who is visible to us He is also a Helper in whom God is most highly pleased because He certainly lives in all His fullness in Him. His body is only the Helper, but His soul is God from eternity. That body is surely a most high chosen One of God in whom He is most highly pleased."
(The difference of opinion about the personality of the Lord - GGJ Book 20)
"All that which is good and true has its complete correspondence in bread and wine. Therefore, you can be assured that after Me when you moderately will be using bread and wine in remembrance of Me, that I will be in the spirit, as now in the body, personally among you My children, brothers and friends until the end of all times of this Earth. Surely, you will not always see Me with the eyes of your body, but then still, your heart will tell you: ‘Rejoice, for your Lord, God and Father is among you and is blessing the bread and wine for you. Therefore, be joyful and cheerful in His name, and remember by that the poor brothers and sisters, and more precisely the poor in spirit.’
 When your heart will give you such a stimulation, remember and belief always that I will be personally among you, and whatever you will then ask Me which is good and true for the life of your soul, I will always very willingly give it in a well understandable way.
 Thus, those who will greet Me with great love in their heart will soon be able to convince themselves also with their eyes that I really am personally among them. And what I am saying and explaining here to all of you is also fully valid for all your true and faithful followers." (GGJ, Book 18, chap. 88)
message received through J. Lorber, 26.6.1841
"When someone believes in the help and guidance of certain guardian spirits and angels, he is like one who well knows the monarch - that he is exceedingly good - but out of fear that perhaps the monarch may not like it if he himself were to bother him with his supposed clumsiness, therefore he makes a bond with other guardian and helping beings and, in the end, believes, in all earnest, that these (alone) have helped or protected him from dangers, when only the monarch - as the chief builder - has imparted his help and protection to the weak believer for which the weak believer has called.
Think for once rightly within yourself! You know that all people and all spirits and angels are nothing else than by-Me-carried thoughts who, at all times, have their life and their all out of Me and, certainly, everyone as much as it accords with My eternal order, as it is precisely most goal-fitting for him. But when one comes to the other and says to him: "Help me in this or that!" and when the other then wants to help the one who called, as if out of himself, is that not exactly like when a blind one would like to lead and a dead one to breathe life into the other, or a very sad one to comfort the other very sad one?
I say to you: Each human being, spirit and angel has enough (to do) if he stands for himself and has not an atom more, so that he could stand for another, out of himself.
But whoever comes to Me, with whatever need and closes a living bond of faith around Me, the sole Living One, how should it not happen to him, since he united himself through a living faith?
There is, upon the way of pure truth, only one true guardian spirit - and this one is I Myself!
All other "guardian spirits" arise from a weak faith, called forth through a gain-seeking establishment of the outer church.

"To a question:
See, your whole duty is, was, and will be eternally, - love, that is, a pure, divine love in you to Me and, in the same way, also to all your brothers and sisters.
According to the degree of this, My love in you, will be given to you, from Me, since I - in My whole Being - am love Itself. You are, if you love Me with all your strength, all beloved children of My love -which has also fructified Mary, the mother of My physical being. But this physical being is also a true brother to you and strong enough to carry you, as little brothers and sister, with all patience and tenderness and to lead you, as grown up brothers and sisters. And whoever wants to (get) to the Father, let him turn only to Me, as the Father's greatly beloved who is the only true Brother to you, full of the highest love and wisdom. And thus you have no need to turn to any other than exclusively to Me in all your entreaties and needs.
See, the greeting to Mary came (at the time of the Annunciation) from the most exalted height of the holiness of God, in all the fullness of the power and might of His Spirit, so that the love in the Father became a true Brother to you! - No, ask yourselves, what you still have to do with this greeting now? Mary does not need it, neither does she thirst for it. And she knows better than any of you that My ear is sharper than hers and My eye brighter, also that My love, My meekness and tenderness is not to be compared with the love, meekness and tenderness of all, even the most blessed spirits of heaven.
"I Myself am the Master and the School"
" However, the school where I could have learned it – this according to your way of thinking – exists nowhere on the whole world, for I Myself am the Master and the School.
 The one who learns it from Me and who comes with Me in the school of life, by believing in the one, only true God and by the love for Him, and through that by the love for fellowman, and who will then live and act according to My teaching, is a good disciple of My school. It is the only real and true school of life for everyone who wants to join that school and who wants therein to persevere unshakably until the end of his earthly life. Only in this school he will find the eternal life of the soul in the beyond, and death and judgment of matter will leave him.
 The one who joins this school, and acts according to its teaching, will then also experience in himself how and why only I am the Master and the School Myself.
 However, in this school, one cannot be half in and half out, but before anything else he should strive only for the Kingdom of God and for its justice, which is all inside of man and nowhere else with some splendor outside of man. And do not worry about the things and treasures of this world, while they have no value for the life of the soul of man, because they are quite as perishable as the most beautiful shining dewdrop that is blown away already by a breeze. For that which a true disciple of My school needs for his timely livelihood, will moreover be given to him as a free gift.
Lord's Greatest Sign. Purpose of Lord's coming into the world and prediction of His death on the cross
" During the morning meal, Mary said to Me: “My most beloved son, You have done so many signs everywhere, but here You did not show anything of Your truly divine power. Perform a sign here also, before You travel on.”
 I said: “Woman, talk to the fishermen, then they will tell you if I did not perform any sign here. But I did not come into this world for the sake of the signs, but for the sake of the truth and the life of the soul, so that everyone who believes in the Son of Man, will have eternal life in him.
 No one will be saved because of My signs, but rather, everyone who believes in Me and who lives and acts according to My teaching. Besides, I have given now the power to My friends to do good to the poor, suffering people in My name, and this is a greater sign than when I would now create a world before your eyes.
 However, at the end of My time on this Earth, which will be during the coming time of Easter in Jerusalem, I will perform a very great sign for all men, by which many will receive eternal life, but a lot of them will come to judgment and eternal death. The one who will then not be offended at Me, will receive the life of the soul.”
“3. And I say to him, ‘Friend, you were with John when the news was brought to him that I was baptising and that many were following Me! Say it aloud in front of everyone - what was John's reply?’ - Says the disciple of John, ‘Here John said and replied, “A man can take nothing unless it were given him from heaven; you are my witnesses to my having said that I am not Christ, but only sent before Him: He Who has the bride is the bridegroom; the bridegroom's friend however is with him and listens to him and rejoices with the bridegroom's voice. This my joy now fulfills itself. He must wax but I wane. He Who is from above is over all, but he who is of this earth is only so and speaks only of this earth. Only He Who comes from Heaven is above all!”
4. Here John paused, relating all that he had beheld and how he had witnessed of Him, but regretted, with a deep sigh, that his testimony, being totally true, was not accepted by anyone. But he who nevertheless accepts it, let him tightly seal the immense actuality of God, for fear of the world.
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1. This verse has already been the subject of a great many misrepresentations and interpretations; yes, even atheists have made use of this very text to dispute My Deity all the more surely since they in general denied the existence of the Deity. However, we are not going to once again present such false concepts whereby the confusion would only be increased, but shall bring light into the matter with the shortest possible explanation. This as itself light within the primordial light will automatically fight and conquer all misconceptions.
2. A main reason why such texts are not understood is unfortunately the very poor and incorrect translation of the Scriptures from the original tongue into the tongues of the present time; but this is for the best. For if the inner meaning of such texts were not hidden as well as it is, that which is holiest therein would long since have been utterly desecrated which would be disastrous for the entire earth. As things are, however, only the outer shell has been marred while the hallowed life has been preserved.
3. The time has come to show the true inner meaning of such texts to all who are worthy of participating in this knowledge, abut the unworthy will have to pay dearly, for in these things I will not be trifled with and I shall never take part in a trade.
4. Now the explanation shall follow this necessary prelude, but I will still add that here only the inner meaning pertaining to soul and spirit is to be understood and not the innermost, purest heavenly meaning. This is too holy and can be bestowed only on those in the world without harm who seek it through living their life in accordance with the precepts of the Gospel. But the inner meaning pertaining to the soul and spirit may easily be found, sometimes already b y means of the correct translation in the respective vernacular of the time, which shall become evident in the explanation of the first verse.
5. The expression ‘In the beginning’ is most incorrect and greatly obscures the inner meaning, for thereby even the eternal existence of the Deity could be questioned and disputed, which was also done by some of the older philosophers from whose school the present-day atheists have actually gone forth. But if we now render this text correctly, its cover will be found to be only very thin and it will not be difficult to discover the inner meaning quite clearly and sometimes very accurately through such a thin cover.
