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.”
 Being disgusted, Simon answered him with a prophesying spirit: “The time will come when you will curse the hour that you all have done such thing. But I wish to serve my Master so that the way of suffering may become lighter for Him.”
 “That you will!” shouted several priests angrily. “Because since you dare to scorn the actions of the temple, we impose a penance on you and you will carry the cross of your Master!”
When Simon heard that, he joyfully rushed to help, took the heavy cross on his strong shoulders and since I was lying on the ground, he also offered Me his hand so that I might find support. I took it, and Simon's physical power was so much strengthened that it became easy for him to carry this heavy load.
 All My closest friends, who were not able to come near the courthouse during the sentencing, followed now. And a lot of people, who were at first frightened and stood at a distance when the adherers of the temple shouted ‘crucify Him’, came closer now. They immediately showed a threatening attitude when the procession came near the gate where a large square made it possible to form a big gathering of people. But the Pharisees were afraid that this would happen and had therefore asked for a big group of Roman soldiers, and these waited for the procession at the gate towards Golgotha to keep order.
 When those who were well-disposed towards Me saw now that I was irrevocably lost and a possible violent rescue out of the hands of the servants of justice was impossible, a loud wailing was raised, mainly by women.
 Therefore, I turned to those who stood closest to Me and said to them: “Weep not for Me but for you and your children, for worse things will come over them than what you see happening to Me now. I go in to My Father but they will not know where they will be going.”
 In the tradition of the church it is said that the maid Veronica offered Me a cloth to dry My sweat. This is true, for she stood in the first rows of the mourners. But the imprint of My face in this cloth is a legend that came up later, and it also should be said here that there was never a Jew Ahasverus in My time who drove Me away from his house. Both are myths that originated later from stories of pious minds trying to beautify My physical death with all possible miracles which also slipped into the gospels.
 If all those things had happened while the body hang on the cross, as it is reported – the big earthquake, the darkening of the sun, the appearance of spirits and many other things – in that case, forced by those mighty signs, Jerusalem would have done penance in sackcloth and ashes even the same day and would not have looked at My resurrection with doubt but with joy and as a sign of forgiveness of all sins. But at the time that the body died, nothing happened that was so exceptional that it necessarily had to be related to My death. There was also no other possibility since the free will may not be affected, and if this main principle did not have to be maintained it would have been possible already earlier to use force by such miracles anyway. Everything happened in such a way that they also could have happened without My physical death, and therefore we will view more closely what those things were.
 Now when I was taken to Golgotha – at that time the usual place of execution in Jerusalem – Judas Iscariot came rushing, and being totally desperate he tried to break through the circle that the temple guards had formed around the place. He was violently pushed back. And standing close by he watched with starring eyes, still hoping for something extraordinary to happen that would free Me. He always was near the place when My condemnation took place, and as it became more and more clear to him that My power had either disappeared here or that I did not use it, he became more and more afraid.
 Finally he rushed back to the High Council and wanted to give the money back while he said that he betrayed innocent blood and seriously accused himself. Of course he was scornfully turned down with the remark that he had to see himself how he can work
it out. In full despair he threw the money into the case of alms of the temple and ran outside, still clinging unto the weak hope that I would free Myself before the worst would happen. When he saw now that My body was thrown to the ground and put on the cross, when he heard the blows of the hammer that drove the nails through My flesh into the wood, he cried out loudly and rushed away from the place. Without looking behind him he ran to a solitary place where he hanged himself on a fig tree with his belt.
 He dearly paid for his mistake, his lust for money and selfishness. About what happened to him after this will once be reported (See Max Seltmann – Book 20 “Judas Ischariot – Sein Schicksal im Jenseits”).
 It was only several days after his death that his corpse was found. It had fallen down from the belt and it was gnawed by dogs and jackasses. He was hastily buried in that same spot.
 It is now reported that a darkness set in when My body hung on the cross. Yes, a big inner darkness came over Jerusalem, but no outer one. It was an inner one by which everyone had the feeling as if he had lost something without knowing what it was. And even the high priests, scribes, Pharisees and temple Jews who longed for My death did not find any satisfaction and felt no joy at their action.
 This is also the reason why the temple did not make any attempts against My disciples and nearest relatives, also not against Nicodemus, Josef of Arimathea or Lazarus who all made a pilgrimage to My cross and were present in My last hour of life. It was especially thanks to the reputation of Nicodemus as member of the High Council that My followers received permission to stay very close by while the place was therwise bordered by soldiers and no one was allowed to come through. At his recommendation an exception was made. My closest disciples however, with the exception of John, were not present, as I often predicted before.
The Shepherd was slain, and so the sheep scattered. After My arrest some of them fled to Lazarus and the others went to hide away with friends, and they were hidden by them.
 Only John dared to show himself openly to be a support and encouragement to Mary, the mother of My body.
 Peter, who after his fall was deeply seized by remorse, secretly followed the procession that brought Me through the streets of Jerusalem from the one ruler to the other, but he stayed far away from all the brothers because his soul felt the urge to be alone and it was only now that he gained full clarity regarding My actions to which end especially the training in Ephraim was very useful to him. He perceived the essence and the purpose of My earthly death and was also firmly convinced of its necessity as well as of My predicted resurrection in which he firmly trusted butwithout saying a word about it.
 Regarding My last hours, the most important has already been said earlier, and whoever wants to recall them, may read: ‘The 7 Words of Christ on the Cross’ (See Die sieben Worte Christi am Kreuz, received by Anthonie Grossheim), then he will be sufficiently informed about My last hours.
 When My soul separated from My body, there was indeed an earthquake, but this was again a phenomenon that did not attract too much attention because in that region in My time the subterranean powers of the Jordan Valley were far more perceptible than now. This is why earthquakes were not that rare.
That this phenomenon was indeed related to My death did of course not come up in the minds of the hard Jews.
 It is also correct that the curtain in the temple was torn as an outer sign that there was now no more obstacle to reach the most holy place of the heart of the Father. Yes, that everyone could go there to receive eternal life. Nevertheless, also this phenomenon, no matter how astonishing, did not cause any sensation. The priests on duty hung up the curtain again, and with that the matter was solved.
 It is further reported that the sun lost its shine. It was already mentioned that no darkness had set in, but everyone knows that earthquakes in warm countries are often announced by a strong cloudiness in the atmosphere by which the sun loses its glance. And this is what happened also here in a similar manner. However, that the sun lost its glance had another reason from the usual one, although the phenomenon was the same.
 It is also reported that the dead came out of their graves and appeared to many. This message has to be understood in the right way, and everyone will understand it better when he considers the following.
 When My body had died and the big group of enemies had completely cooled down their vengeance, the people soon spread out because an inner terrifying feeling – the already mentioned inner darkness – made everyone to seek protection in his own house where, according to their statutes, the Jews had to prepare for the Sabbath that came near at sunset.
 My followers came now more and more close to the place of execution so that the group of those who were in favor of Me became quite big. Josef of Arimathea had gone already earlier to Pilate, asking for My body – a favor that was not always granted.
 But Pilate gladly granted this to him because he wanted to annoy the Jews with this, as well as by the inscription on top of the cross in 3 languages which stated that I was the king of the Jews.
 My friends took the body immediately from the cross, cleaned it and anointed it, and carried it very carefully to a rock grave that belonged to Josef of Arimathea, on a piece of land that he had bought from Nicodemus in order to use it as his own last resting place in the future.
 Although Golgotha was a rocky hill, it was located close by a densely populated exclusive residential area where many rich Romans and Jews had bought land and built beautiful country houses. This explains the proximity of the garden.
 They laid the body in the grave and protected it well from fear that the Jews would in their evilness also harm the corpse.
 But these were in turn afraid that My followers wanted to steal the corpse and then possibly claim that I was resurrected, for they heard and knew very well that the word about My predicted death and also about My resurrection was spread among the people. For this reason they asked Pilate for guards and he also granted this to them, even if it was only out of curiosity to see if something miraculous would happen as was generally expected by friends and feared by enemies. Thus guards were appointed – Roman soldiers – who had to guard the grave for 5 days long."
99. CONCERNING THE DEATH OF THE LORD
" BUT what happened while the body was lying in the grave? And what was actually the compelling reason for My death? There will be a short but clear explanation about this now. So listen:
 It has been often explained before that Adam as first human being on this Earth – that means as a human being with full spiritual freedom – was created to build a form from which matter could be led back to a free spiritual life. And most of all, overcoming matter itself was necessary to achieve this, and by a free decision of will, a condition had to be created which showed on the one hand the overcoming of all the lower characteristics, like worldly lusts, wrong desires and tendencies, in order to on the other hand make a free ascension to the purest spiritual life possible.
 It has been said often enough that the human soul consists of very small beginnings that develop to ever higher levels of consciousness to finally reach that form again in man and which cannot develop any further as an earthly form, except for what the form of the soul is concerned. So there are two principles in man: the end of the material life as highest developed self consciousness and the beginning of a soul life that is unchangeable in the highest attainable perfection of the form. Therefore, on this knife edge of earthly life man cannot ignore the awareness that he lives – for he himself is proof of that – while he still has no idea that he came at the doorstep of a spiritual life which has now its beginning in the unchangeable human form. In other words, after he went through many changes of physical forms – with the purpose to reach the human shape – this shape in its general form does now not change anymore. However, it is now that the soul begins to change with the purpose to come ever closer to the Spirit of God Himself and so to enter in communion with Him.
 Now he who can think, let him think. What can happen if this transition is not achieved, because here matter and spirit stand sharply against each other? They can both refine one another more and more, but – since they are polarities – they can never completely touch each other. Anyhow, a way must be shown here, a bridge built over which it is possible for matter to come to the spirit. And that bridge must be an example that everyone is able to follow. If that way were not found, that means: if someone would not walk on it, then it would become impossible to leave matter and come into a free, spiritual life.
 So the Deity Himself – who compelled His created beings to walk the way of matter out of love to save them, and after they had reached the border from where the way of the spirit is possible – had to strive to draw them to Himself and bring them in this way into the relationship of Father and child. Adam had to build that bridge in himself, and it was actually very easy for him since the attractions of matter were very weak compared to now. He only had to overcome himself – obedience – then the bridge would have been built and the spiritual life could have awakened and blossomed in him, because for man, who is for the rest free of every sin, obedience to God is the only means to test him. It is only after disobedience that automatically all other offences follow, as everyone can easily notice with children. Now Adam fell, and with that a withdrawal in matter had taken place – this means in that polarity – which can distance itself from God equally as far as it can ascend to God Himself to ever greater bliss.
 But with this fall, sin came into the world, because God never creates a work to destroy it again but continues to follow the way that was once taken and tries as it were to correct it, because divine wisdom takes the consequences of a failure into account beforehand. And when it comes to creating free created beings – not spiritual machines – then the way of self-development in man is truly the only way to it. However, when the human race divided into nations, a succession of all sins occurred, consisting of a long series, leading to an ever deeper fall, because its beginning – disobedience – was simply there. This means: if Adam had not been disobedient, also none of his descendants could have been disobedient because then he would have destroyed a germ in himself that could not be inherited anymore. However, in this manner he fertilized the germ, and it grew in his descendants to become a tree that hardly allows the light of the sun to shine through its dense roof of leaves.
 Now often very strong souls have tried to break through this roof of leaves to let the sun shine through it, and although they succeeded partially, mankind possesses very ancient religions. But those strong souls did not succeed to reach the core of the tree and break its crown to such extent that this mighty tree had to die. And they did not succeed because they themselves were not without guilt in their earthly life since they first tasted of the world before they felt thirsty for the truth and knowledge of God. The world tasted nasty to them, and only after that did they seek something better.
 The old Indian religions are the oldest that you know, because the old Egyptian religion in its true teaching was the oldest but its knowledge has been lost. All those teachers were such strong souls. They broke through the roof of leaves for themselves, showing the way, and they described and declared what is true and real. Nevertheless, they could not write otherwise than for their time by which many things have become invalid now, which is easy to understand considering the circumstances. Concerning this, let us see the following:
 Before the encasing in the flesh as Jesus, God was impersonal. This is why nobody could come to see Him but only feel His Being who could of course only show Himself as Light because God Himself is pure light that sends out His rays. But when there is light, it is everywhere. It streams through everything and awakens everything to life. However, the impersonality of God necessitates not one point from where the rays are shining, like from a sun, but a sea of light in which there is no concentration. So those who spiritually penetrated to the divine Being could not be aware of the divine Being in any other way than as a life in the light – floating and resting in the light, uniting with the light without any wish. Now when Jesus became the personification of God, experiencingthe deity was very different for those who came near to Him – it was simply the drawing near of one person to another. Therefore, the old seers are right, but the newer ones, who lived after Me, are also right.
 After the fall of Lucifer, when the material world came into existence, the spiritual sun was created as the seat of the deity. But despite everything, it was not to be understood as a concentration existing in itself. The light in the spiritual world was everywhere, but to the physical man – as long as his soul was bound to that body – this spiritual sun did not become visible before My earthly life. The fact that it became visible was a crowning of the faith of the spirit-beings, for it was only visible to them – but now also to the person who believes in Me as soon as his spiritual eye is opened, because the Man Jesus can reveal His whole Kingdom at any moment to all who believe in Him.
 But the question remains: why can we find the same basic features in the old religions?
 If it were not so, it would be surprising to the one who has understood these revelations, for if these old religions are forerunners of the teaching of the Son of man and Son of God, then they also must contain the main features of the latter. They cannot contain things that are different. That the lives of individual teachers who arose show similarities with Mine is based on the same fact.
 If the old Egyptian religion would be entirely known it its oldest basic features – these only survived hazily in the present time by the later cult of the gods – then one would say: the Christian religion is derived from the old Egyptian religion. This is how strongly they look alike, especially if one would know the original meaning of the characteristics of Osiris, Isis and Horus.
 However, to what extent did I succeed to break the tree of sins and not to only break through the roof of leaves?
 In the first place everyone should clearly understand what it means “to sin”.
 Many will soon be ready with the answer and say: sin is everything that is against God’s will. Although this is true, but what is God’s will actually, and how can man recognize it if he does not even believe in God and even less recognize His will?
 But then we can know from the viewpoint of human life: No one can sin against God unless He came to know Him. No one can be offended when a blind man claims that there is no light only because he does not see it, and even less will God pressure the one who does not know Him because of his foolishness. However, a blind man can offend his neighbor or someone else when he resists him in one way or another – even though he does not see him but he can hear and feel him and he is able to receive and enjoy his direct good deeds. He can sin against his love, for despite his blindness he cannot deny that the person exists.
 This is also the case with someone who is spiritually blind. He certainly can sin against the commandment of neighborly love, even if he does not know God. Neighborly love is the way to the love for God – this has often been explained.
 Now since the Man Jesus fulfilled this commandment down to the smallest detail – and this since His youth – the love of God grew in Him so that He finally was absorbed by it. Sin had no power over Him for he strove to go from the initial visible way of neighborly love, which was apparent through outer works, to the inner invisible way in the love of God.
 God gave a commandment to Adam: unconditional obedience. He despised it and fell. Out of love for God the Man Jesus gave to Himself this commandment: not to do anything without the will of the Father, and through this He became the shining example to follow. So He achieved in Himself the level that Adam did not achieve, and in this manner He reconciled in Himself the deity who was hurt in His holiness by the commandment that was violated.
 Wisdom gave the commandment. The will, the power, wanted its fulfillment. The love found the way in the Man Jesus to fulfill the conditions that were necessary to bring back the former state of happiness for all created beings. Salvation lies in the fact that this way, which leads directly to God, is now opened and that this way was fulfilled by the Son of man Jesus who became by that the Son of God. The death of Jesus is the sealing of the unconditional obedience. Even though it was not necessary, but since mankind, with its unlimited free will and by the influence of Lucifer demanded it, Jesus submitted Himself also to this demand and died physically.
 Falling from one sin into another brings about an ever greater hardness of the soul. One speaks of stony hearts to describe this condition. How far this can go cannot be overseen. Matter, the outer lust, keeps growing, and naturally the awareness of any spirit-soul essential core becomes lost more and more. This hardening leads finally to an animal condition which only knows preservation and procreation without inner spiritual freedom. Only a pure spiritual teaching can bring salvation from such condition and will lead to a moral awareness of human dignity, and this teaching was given briefly, could not be misunderstood and in the greatest possible clearness. Acting upon it will break the chains of matter, will release the bonds of worldly lust for pleasure and will finally lead the material wishes and desires to a condition of pure awareness as knowing evil, but no more doing evil because the ego will melt down more and more while this ego (selfishness) would otherwise outgrow more and more. The more the ego will fade away, the more the shackles of matter will loosen (soften) and they will finally be no more felt as shackles.
 So the tree of sin was and could only be broken by Jesus because in Himself He enclosed the Spirit of God who already gave the commandment to Adam, but he did not obey.
 Now one will say: ‘But where is the proof that this is so, and that the former teachers did not accomplish the same? For what has been said here is hidden to the human eye. It is an inner process about which no one besides Jesus can report while the outer process, the appearance of a great teacher, his life, his good teachings and also his death, happened many times. Now how can the tree of sins be really broken by Jesus, and over there they only broke through the roof of leaves? This can hardly be noticed from the outer result in the world, because sin is flourishing in the present time as never before, and mankind cannot recognize the signs, except the outer ones.’
 Yes, this seems to be so at first sight but when we look closer, it does not.
 All those who will go the inner way will soon realize what it is truly like. The outer appearance means nothing at all, for it is a hollow note. The one who does not want to go the inner way cannot be convinced or given an image of that way, just as little as it is impossible to give a blind person a notion of colors. Here the result decides. The way is there. Walk on it, and then make your conclusion.
 No one can come to the Father without Me, and without faith in Jesus no sage has ever felt the almighty Being of God as the very first Source of all love who can make Himself personal. Only in Jesus, the impersonal becomes personal, and the union of these two in the human form makes it possible for the creature to draw near to the Creator, the rising of matter in the spirit, the leading back of the sequence of sins that were committed upwards beyond the wall that separates matter and spirit, as points that otherwise cannot touch each other – and the bridge is the life of Jesus.
 Now the question arises: before the death of the Son of man, how far actually could the deceased souls go?
 They could of course come to insight and also to inner bliss, this according to how they followed the teaching of the many earlier teachers, but they could of course not reach the point of viewing the personified deity.
 This happened in history for the first time when the body of Jesus was lying in the grave. There lay the purely earthly body, while the soul with the indwelling Spirit of God passed over and there showed Himself to all as the One who He is and was.
 This can only be mentioned here. However, later will also be revealed what exactly happened.
 With this manifestation in the spirit world, began the building and populating of the New Jerusalem as the city of God and the inhabitants, and it will continue to exist forever."
100. JESUS’ RESURRECTION AND APPEARANCE TO THE DISCIPLES
" ON the third day of Passover the deity returned and called on the Son of Man’s body that entirely dissolved itself at once and was now added as garment to the soul. This event was seen by the Roman guards as a brilliant light that filled the cavity of the grave, and this frightened them so much that they immediately ran away from it to announce that I was resurrected.The stone was rolled away from the opening so that everyone could look now into the crypt.
 The soldiers hurried to Pilate who was greatly surprised, and with a certain delight he reported it to the High Council. A few members of the High Council went immediately to the place and saw that the spot was empty, and, knowing the discontentment of the people, they anxiously tried to cover up the case, gave money to the soldiers and wanted them to say that the disciples stole the corpse while they were asleep. At the same time they assured them impunity with Pilate who had to punish with death such violation of sleeping while they were on post.
 But Pilate did not want to grant this impunity, and said, when a higher priest tried to negotiate with him: “Either the soldiers slept, and then they are doubly guilty because they slept and lied to me, or they did not sleep, and in that case I do not want by a lie to expose myself to the anger of the One who is resurrected.”
 Nothing could be achieved with him, and therefore the priests gave much money to the soldiers so that they could flee to far away regions, which they also did. Then the story about the theft of the corpse went around and is still believed today.
 It is known from the gospels that I appeared to many after the resurrection. This did not only happen in the indicated places but wherever I had been teaching, to proof My followers that the teaching that I gave to them was right.
 I was not the only One who became visible but also many of those who had been called away before appeared to their relatives in clear dreams, and in one case even during daytime, to tell them about the New Jerusalem. These facts were later brought in connection with the moment of death, and this is the explanation for the rumor why many dead had risen and appeared to their relatives in their houses.
 That which is still important from the time till I was taken away from the Mount of Olives will now be very briefly mentioned.
 The first to see Me was Mary Magdalene. This happened exactly as John described it.
 Very early in the morning – even before the High Council was informed – Mary went to the grave with 6 other women to pray there and to once more pour out fragrant ointments over the body to protect it against decomposition. But they saw that the grave was empty and they hurried back to tell the disciples.
 When they had calmed down and they all returned to inform the others who did not yet know that something had happened, Mary stayed behind alone.
 It has already been said why I turned her down with the words: ‘Do not touch Me’ – her still impure love for Me could have destroyed her if she had touched My Being that was now purely spiritual.
 John reports further that I appeared to the disciples when they were together behind closed doors. This happened in the following manner: after the Pharisees had spread their false reports, soon a great agitation arose among the people in Jerusalem. Most of them did not believe the temple servants because contrary to this there was the clear conviction that this was something unheard of: Roman soldiers so greatly neglected a place they had to guard that a grave could be opened and emptied. So all kinds of remarks about the deep sleep of the soldiers was soon spread around and mocked this incredible explanation, comparing the much deeper sleep of the temple with that of the soldiers. The priests became very angry about that and tried, if possible, to capture the disciples and to kill also them because they refuted their lies by telling the full facts.
 The disciples came together to deliberate what they would do. This happened with the innkeeper in the inn on the Mount of Olives that is sufficiently known.
 However, Thomas was not present at this first meeting since he was in Jerusalem to find out about the situation there.
 In the midst of this gathering, where also Lazarus was present, I came in and greeted those who were present, and after their first amazement they were overwhelmed by joy and crowded around Me. I taught them once more that evening about the purpose of My death as well as their task as teacher which they received now, and also that they did not have to be afraid because, with a firm trust in Me and love for Me, they were safe for all persecutions. So I proved to them the immortality in My Kingdom by My personal appearance, and they all were now completely filled with faith and zeal of heart.
 Then I left them after advising them to gather here again after 8 days and that everyone should put order in his house.
 Then after 8 days the described scene happened with Thomas, also reported by John.
 In that time after Passover I appeared to all whom I directly had contact with to give them the proof of My words and to strengthen their mind for the spreading of the teaching. No one was excluded from that. Those who were embittered at the Jews by
My death were calmed down, and those who had become wavering were strengthened.
 But it is unnecessary to again describe all those events because besides that, nothing happened which everyone cannot imagine himself. These deeds were only a crowning of their faith, but thereby an expansion of My teaching did not take place.
 For instance the story of the 2 disciples of Emmaus gives a rather accurate image of all those events that occurred in a similar manner. This is also the reason why it was passed on.
 However, the manifestation at the Lake of Galilee was intended to lift up and to strengthen Peter who unspeakably suffered under the awareness that he had denied Me. This is why he was put to the test by which he could transform his faith into actions. When the disciples were in the ship, recognizing Me and told Peter about it, he threw himself immediately into the sea to shorten the way to Me. This faith purified him of the still adhering impurities, because everyone who has recognized Me should seek the shortest way to Me through the surging sea.
 So his triple denial also corresponds with the question that was asked 3 times: ‘Do you love Me?’
 In this event lies a great corresponding meaning which everyone who read this work with his heart and not only with his reason can solve for himself. Let therefore everyone examine himself and see whether he can solve this correspondence.
 The disciples went soon to work to put things in order at home. I instructed them to gather again at a certain time with the innkeeper, and this also happened. This was the 40th day after the Passover, similar with the 40 days in the desert which they all needed to prepare themselves.
 All who were close to Me came, and again I entered into their midst and led them to the top of the Mount of Olives from where one has a panoramic view. There I gathered the apostles around Me. The other disciples stood in a big circle around us. Once more I admonished them all to firmly hold on to Me and My teaching. I also instructed My disciples to go everywhere and to preach the Gospel in My name. After that I said farewell to them and explained to them that they would no longer see Me physically but would remain in contact with Me spiritually.
 Then I blessed them, and soon I disappeared from their midst.
 With this, everything has been reviewed and faithfully written down what concerns My earthly life and what has become visible on Earth.
 However, a big part is still missing here, namely what happened in the spiritual world. To understand this, the world is still far too immature, and also the few who believe in My direct Word can still not absorb it. But the time will come, and it is not too far away, when people will return to a more purely spiritual feeling. Then the time will have come that also this will be revealed, and this will also happen.
 Let therefore everyone be satisfied with what is offered and follow My teaching so that this time may soon come very near, because the nations shall come closer to each other and the Earth shall become a place of peace. Amen."
