Elias (Elijah) prophecy of Jehova's coming. Metaphor of “the gently breeze’.
"6. From Adam until our time the law of wisdom was reigning and such wisdom and a strong and unconditional will was required to fulfil such a law within oneself.
7. But God saw that men would never fulfil the law of wisdom and so came into the world himself in order to give them a new law of love which they will easily be able to fulfil. For in the law of wisdom Jehovah let only His light radiate among men. The light was not He Himself, it only flowed from Him to men just as men have gone forth from Him, but nevertheless are not Jehovah Himself. However Jehovah Himself does come to men through and within love, takes spiritual residence in man in the fullness of truth and thereby makes created man similar to Himself in everything. Then Satan is no longer able to harm, by his cunning, a man thus armed, for Jehovah’s spirit within man sees always through Satan’s ever so concealed tricks and has at all times plenty of power to disperse Satan’s total helplessness.
8. The Prophet Elias described the present situation of mankind, when Jehovah comes to men directly in love, as a gentle rustling passing the cave, but Jehovah was not in the great storm and in the fire.
9. Thus the gently rustling is people’s love for God and their brothers wherein Jehovah Himself is dwelling, whereas He does not dwell in the storm of wisdom and the flaming sword of the law." (THE GREAT GOSPEL OF JOHN vol. 1, chap. 67)
"11. But that time has now come which Elijah was shown when he lay hidden in the mountain cave. It was not in the storm nor in the fire, but in the gentle breeze that Jehovah was moving about! And that time of Jehovah's gentle breeze before the world-cave is here now! Hence we neither want to nor can, move out through storm, nor fire, but in accordance with God's eternal order in all love, gentleness and patience! Yet you are not to disregard shrewdness! Because I am well aware of your moving out as lambs among rapacious wolves; yet if you nevertheless are clever, you shall accomplish much. " (THE GREAT GOSPEL OF JOHN, Book 2, chap. 37
