Received through Gottfried Mayerhofer on July 18, 1875
Several years after the death of Jakob Lorber, Gottfried Mayerhofer, who lived in Trieste, received valuable additional dictation from the Lord. The following text deals with part of the Apocalypse and deals with the coded language which John used.
Why such a coded language? The Lord has a very simple and convincing reason: “Had I as God of Love caused the entire process of development up to this day to be written in a language common to you, the words would have died away and nobody would have cared for their spiritual meaning.”
[The Lord Jesus:] “This Revelation of John or – I prefer to say - this picture of manners for the entire period, which came over your earth after My transition into the domain of the spirits (until now and My return) - this revelation has been explained, explored and set forth by many a person who presumed to be learned, but so far no one has found the right key to open up the chapters of this Holy Word, nor to judge correctly the happenings and periods, all of which had to happen after My ascent, as long as man, a free being, was lord over his own actions.
Now, that we have almost reached the fulfillment of the entire prophecy and most of it is already over, I will explain to you this Revelation step by step in order that you may be able to judge for yourselves how far all of them were away from the real meaning by attempting to find out the literal sense of what can be expressed only by correspondence.
As long as man does not comprehend the interpretation or the spiritual meaning of words (called correspondence), it is useless to attempt the grasping My Words in their innermost sense.
Veiled information about the New Revelation in the Revelation of John
"If however, it should one day be necessary, I shall anew awaken men whom I shall inform of all that has happened here and what the world has to expect because of his incorrigible wickedness.
How all this will happen, I shall, when again dwelling in My heaven, reveal in veiled pictures for all the world to you, My brother John, still in this world." (reference to Revelation of John) (GGJ vol I 217:14-15)
The New Jerusalem
“3] Thereupon I opened for a few moments the inner vision of all those present, and the star became a world full of light. In its center stood a New Jerusalem with twelve gates, its walls built from as many kinds of precious stones as the city had gates. Through all the gates angels passed in and out; several times also Moses, Elias and many other prophets appeared. Now the Jews were extremely amazed and began to praise and glorify Me for showing and bestowing on them so much grace. I then restored them to their natural state and now all they saw was the bright star which kept getting smaller and smaller until finally it disappeared.
04] When this whole scene was over, nearly all of them asked Me at once what this might have been.
05] Said I: "What you saw was this My new teaching which I am giving you from the heavens. It is the true New Jerusalem from the heavens, for the old one on earth is no longer good for anything. The twelve gates mean the true twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve kinds of precious stones in the city walls are the ten commandments of Moses and the upper two rows consisting of diamonds and rubies signify My two commandments of love for God and love for the fellowman.

98. CRUCIFIXION, DEATH AND BURIAL OF JESUS
" THE temple seemed to have won and wanted the death sentence that was pronounced to be carried out as soon as possible.
 What will follow now will not be a detailed description of all the tortures that My body had to endure, for these are things which the soul of no human being can understand. Only in a free, spiritual condition will it once be possible to understand to what extent that torment of death served to completely spiritualize My body and therefore also to contribute to the salvation of matter, although that torture was not necessarily needed.
 Only a few errors will be corrected here and make a few things clear so that in accordance with the gospels, which, regarding to My physical death are quite accurate, a clear picture can be given of the last hours of the Son of man.
 Firstly we have to consider the carrying of the cross. It was a custom with the Romans that every criminal who was sentenced to death had to carry his wood of death himself to the place of execution, and often, when the strength left him to do this, he was very cruelly tortured to make him carry out that punishment. Of course I was also not spared of this, and the strength of My extremely exhausted body left Me very soon so that I fell to the ground several times.
 Simon of Cyrene, who adhered to My teaching and as such well-known to the priests, met the procession, and being horrified he watched My pitiful condition with compassion.
 Then one of the temple servants shouted at him scornfully: “Look there at your great Master who cannot help Himself. Now His deceit comes miserably into light.”
