"5. Say the two (angels): "Not this way, dear friends, for the Lord is tolerant in all things. As long as you follow Him in your hearts, have a living faith in Him and believe that through Him the Scriptures will be fulfilled and for the greater part has already been fulfilled, you are doing enough. Otherwise stay as you are, so that the servants of the world and the devil of whom the temple is full are not awakened before the time. Teach people Moses and the prophets and see that the true commandments of God are observed, but regard the observance of the worldly laws of the temple as you would lukewarm water, then you will be as much His disciples, as those whom He called and chose from among the fishermen." (GGJ II, chap. 54)
The Baptism in the name of Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. No outer way of purification. No paid blessings
The only valid outer sign - The Baptism in the name of Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. No outer way of purification. No paid blessings of marriages
 I have already told you that you should baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit all those who earnestly and truly accept and are answering to My teaching and thus also Myself. For that, the laying-on of hands is sufficient, and as an outer sign of true, inner purification by God’s Spirit a washing with clean water. And this is truly sufficient for Jews and gentiles.
 All the rest has from now on no more value in My eyes, just like an outer prayer with the lips – no matter how long it is – has no value for Me. He who wants his prayer to be answered must go into the quiet chamber of his heart and pray to Me in full faith, then I will grant him what he has asked for.
 I say to you once more, just as I have said already so many times before: search in everything only the truth, this will set you completely free.
 It is very good when man is keeping his body clean according to the teaching of Moses. Through uncleanness all kinds of malicious diseases will come in the flesh and in the blood, and these are causing dislike and grief in the still weak soul. But that which is cleaning the flesh from the dirt does not clean the soul from his sins. The Jews are indeed washing their hands before and after a meal and often also their feet, and we are often not doing that, and still we are cleaner with unwashed hands than the strict Jews with always washed hands and feet.
" The present Jewish priests are now and then perceiving such rather comparable reflecting image of the deeper lying truths of the Scripture, but because their heart and mind is all too soon and too easily disrupted by the winds of all worldly worries, also the mirror that must take up the spiritual things and truths from the sphere of the inner, spiritual life of their heart and mind is disrupted and disturbed. Thus they cannot perceive and recognize the hidden truths in the Scripture, and they immediately throw themselves into the arms of every worldly delight.
 They absolutely do not think anymore about the moments of light they had, and they go on guzzling during their whole earthly life. And when they are warned that they are on the way of ruin, then they are full of vexation and anger, and they persecute the One who has come to them in full lowliness, love, meekness, patience, humility and in full goodness and compassion." (GGJ, Book 22, chap 62)
"See, these people worship Me with their lips and in idle, dead worldly ceremony, but their hearts are far away from Me." (GGJ 209,4)
"The work of outward appearance and of ceremonial means more to them than the living one himself, who is speaking to them." "Let all that go - hold only on to love." (Interpretation of Scriptures 108 f.)
" (The Lord:) Whoever is with Me in his heart, with him I am always, and he is always near Me, and this is really the main thing. For of what benefit would it be to one who, though on earth always personally near Me, keeps his heart far from Me and instead gives it to the mad world? Truly, he is nevertheless more remote from Me than the most remote thing that you could possibly imagine.
 But who in his heart is as close to Me as you, My loveliest Helena, is and will be always equally close to Me, even if we were to outward appearances separated by a distance a thousand times greater than that between us here and the remotest and smallest star your eyes glimpses for moments only as a shimmering down out of limitless space.
 Yes, I tell you, who loves Me like you and believes in his heart that I am the One Whose descent the fathers awaited, is as much at one with Me as I, as you can fell Me here, am wholly at one with My Father in Heaven. For love unites everything; through it, God and created being become at one, and space can no longer separate what true and pure love out of the profound depth of the heavens has united.
 Thus, you will through your love always be very close to Me, even if in this world distance will, for a short time, separate you from My person. But one day, beyond My Kingdom of the purest spirit and the fullest truth, you will anyway not be separated from Me in eternity. (GGJ III, chap. 111)

Sixth Sunday After Trinity
The Lord Feeds the 4000
St. Mark VIII, 1-9: "In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them, I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from afar. And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people. And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets. And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away."
(April 7, 1872)
This chapter deals with another feeding of the multitude gathered around Me, namely, four thousand people. In the end seven baskets with bread are left over, whilst at the start there were only seven loaves of bread and some fish available.
Once before I worked a similar miracle, feeding five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fishes, when twelve baskets with bread were left over. You already know the spiritual meaning of the five loaves and the two fishes. In this second instance, too, when instead of five thousand I fed only four thousand people with seven loaves of bread and some fish, whereby seven baskets full were left over -compared with twelve the first time, everything has its spiritual meaning, which I shall now explain to you.
The twelve baskets of leftovers from the first miracle, denoted the twelve tribes of Israel as well as the twelve commandments which were to remain with men after I had gone. The seven baskets that were left the second time denote My seven main attributes which were to remain with men to strengthen them and serve as their guiding principle when they no longer had Me. These seven attributes are:
Love, patience, meekness, forgiveness, perseverance, self-sacrifice and mercy.
The Resurrection of the Lord
St. Mark XVI, 1-8: "And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away, for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that He goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid." (February 19, 1872)
"The previous Gospel text dealt with My entry into Jerusalem and the temple.This one describes My burial and resurrection, as well as My appearance to several of My disciples and Mary Magdalene. Between My entry into Jerusalem and My burial there is My condemnation, My immense suffering as a man and as God, My greatest humiliation as Creator and Lord of the world and the proof of My supreme love, a love of which only I, the uncreated, eternal God and Lord, am capable by submitting to all this in order to set an example to My created beings and spirits. They were to learn what is needed to become a child of Him Who is able to call into existence worlds, solar systems, and vast spirit-realms which He could again eradicate if His mighty will were not induced by His all-embracing love to preserve all created things instead of destroying them.
" Immediately Lazarus ordered new wine and said: “The great and the very exalted teaching which we have now heard from Your godly mouth must also be confirmed by a new wine and be sealed in our heart.”
 I said: “You are right about that, friend and brother Lazarus. 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. But give Me the new wine now, for I have become thirsty.”
Prophecy of the Boy Jesus about heathen and Temple. The hypocritical Temple officials (chap. 26,The 3 Days Scene)
Prophecy of the Boy Jesus about heathen and Temple. About Zacharias (chap. 26, The 3 Days Scene)
The angry answer of the chief-priest. The prophecy of the Boy Jesus about the calling of the heathen to be the children of GOD in place of the Jews, and about the destruction of the Temple and of Jerusalem. The truth about the death of Zacharias. The measure of the Jews is full.
1] At this speech of Mine, the chief-priest grew quite angry and said: “Boy, who gave you the right to menace us and the Temple? Did we make the laws, according to which we have to act now? Wise as some of your former speeches were. So are these unwise! Do you not know that not a tree falls at one blow, and that it is vain to change a thing that cannot possibly be changed! Just change the people yourself if you can! The Jewish nation is already a very old tree, and can no longer be bent like a young sapling!
2] We certainly have no wish at all to doubt that you have a higher vocation from GOD: but for all that, you must not tread under your feet the old institutions originating from Moses - even perhaps also with many later additions required by the circumstances of the times - neither should you compare us, being their administrators, to ravening wolves in sheep’s clothing. For we have torn no-one yet, but if we have chastised any blasphemer of God and the Temple, and the adulterers, we did nothing else but what was commanded by Moses. Can you say there that we acted wrongly, and against the Laws of GOD?
3] If you speak with us, measure your words a little better, for if you find some fault with us and with the Temple. Tell it to us with childlike, kind words, and we shall see what can be done about it. But with these threats of Divine Wisdom you will accomplish nothing with us!
4] I said: With your kind, no one yet has ever accomplished anything, neither with gentle nor with sharp words: therefore you also shall remain as you are, until the end of the world! But for this reason, Grace shall be taken away from you and shall be given to the heathen!
5] Look beyond the great sea at the continent of Europe! It is inhabited by nothing but heathens. - only very rarely does a Jew go there: Thither shall the Grace from Heaven be transplanted!
" Now you should only believe all that, but when your faith has become alive through works, then by your living faith you will begin to envision it, to feel it yourself and to be deeply convinced to know, and that is much better for the soul of man than when he only accepts something, being convinced of the truth after he has made the truth his own through his own seeking and searching with great difficulty by way of experience.
 It is true that such a seeking and zealously searching soul is also worth of his salary because every worker is worth of his salary, but if a soul believes and acts according to the truth that he has – let us say – heard from God’s mouth, this is better, because by that he unites through love My Spirit with himself, and that can
– and also does – give him in 1 hour more of the most lightened wisdom than what he can acquire by way of very personal investigation in 100 years time. But for this reason, a pious, believing soul should not set aside the right seeking and searching, because every person should investigate everything that he hears from men and keep that which is good and which consequently is also always true. But that which has been revealed by Myself to men, which is easily recognizable, man should not have to investigate it thoroughly. He only should believe it and act accordingly, then he very soon will see the active result.
 The innkeeper and also his son Kado said full of joy: “Who would not understand that which is all too true according to the purest insight and the sharpest mind of man? We thank You also for this clarifying answer.
 But since we are talking and asking anyway, we gladly would like to hear from Your wisdom why actually a ceremonial
so-called religion has been introduced, and why God has allowed it. For in our opinion, this is always the reason for all kinds of superstition, polytheism, idolatry, and finally complete godlessness, as we can see with the philosophers who are adhering to the teaching of Diogenes. If immediately from the very beginning, a pure teaching of duties regarding God and men were given to man – just as simple and understandable as You, o Lord and Master, have presented to us – then certainly much disaster would not have come on this Earth.
 Moses is incontestably the purest and most truthful religious teacher and most faithful announcer of God’s will to men, but also his teaching is not without any ceremony, no matter how meaningful it may be, and precisely the ceremony is now the visible decline of the otherwise so exalted Jewry, and becomes ever worse in course of time. Why actually during the first times a ceremonial cult was always announced together with a godly teaching, and it was even commanded to practice it rigorously?”
