 From this time on I began to speak more seriously with My disciples about the fact that I would have to go to Jerusalem according to My Father‘s will and would suffer very much there from the elders, the high priests and scribes, would be killed by them, but that on the third day I would raise from the dead again I would then stand there as a victor over all death and over all
enemies of life for eternity, as I had already mentioned on Mark‘s mountain.
 At this Peter became quite alarmed and, drawing Me aside, said in a commanding, admonishing tone: “Lord, this must never happen to You! You are obliged both to us and to all men to protect Yourself.”
 But I turned around quickly and said in a very most serious tone: “Away with you, Satan; you are a stumbling-block to Me. You think as worldly men think, not as God thinks.”
 Here Peter was very powerfully shocked, fell down before Me, begged for forgiveness and added, sobbing: “Lord, when we were sailing on this sea to the place where we have now just spent several days, You said to me on account of my faith: ‘Simon Juda, you are Peter the rock. And on this rock I will build My church, and the powers of death shall never conquer it. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatsoever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and what you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.’ These, oh Lord, were the holy words from Your most holy mouth, literally directed to me, a poor sinner. Yet I have never prided myself because of it but have always regarded myself as the least amongst us all – and now You call me prince of darkness because I, driven by my great love for You, gave You a warning as a man. Lord, do have grace and mercy upon the poor fisherman Peter, who was the first to throw his net into the sea and leave his wife and children to follow You!” (GGJ Book 12, chap. 65)
66. THE ESSENCE OF SATAN AND MATTER
 Here I turned again to Peter in the friendliest way and said:
“I have not disparaged you in the least if I have shown you in
the sharp speech your human side Everything that is human in this world in a person – his flesh and its various needs from pure earthly considerations – is under judgment, therefore hell and Satan, who is the epitome of all judgment, death, night and falsehood, for the whole so-called life of matter is merely a phantom-life and of no value at all.
 He who sinks back into some aspect of matter is also Satan, insofar as he seeks his salvation in matter and its phantom-life.
 If anyone wishes to break free of Satan in his flesh, let him deny himself and take up this cross that I already carry in spirit and follow Me! For I say to you: Whoever wishes to save his (earthly) life will lose it (spiritually); but whoever loses his (earthly) life for My sake shall find it (spiritually)!
 For what will a man gain by winning the whole world with all its treasures while at the same time he loses his soul? Or what can a man give that will free his soul from the bonds of matter, judgment and death?
 For indeed it will come to pass that I, now the Son of Man, shall at some future time return in the glory of the Father with all the angels, whose power you know. But then, as now, He will only be able to help and reward every man according to his own works. Whoever will be found dead will remain dead until such time when all those who have remained in the graves of judgment will be raised, too. Even then, every man's judge will be forever his love, will and conscience.
 But those who live according to My words and do deeds of true self-denial and inner free love will never see or feel death. Verily, to My great joy and yours I can say to you that there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste or feel death and shall be witnesses of everything until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom with whom they will reign forever! But for that much love for God and for one’s fellow man is required.”
 Truly, if there is any father or mother here who only care about looking after their children well in this world, and do not pay attention to the higher value of the life of the soul of their children, have dug themselves and their children a grave for eternal death; for whatever is of the world is also of Satan, thus of judgment and the death of matter!
 Truly all matter is determined to be awakened through the power of another worldly pure spirit[i] to be resurrected from the long judgment; but then matter must transform according to its well-engrained free intelligence into the correct form and wisdom of its other-worldly spirit, which is a light from God. If this does not happen by the matter, the other-worldly spirit returns to its source and the matter that should have been awakened forever falls back once again into its old judgment and will have to wait there until once again another worldly spirit awakens it to a new test life.
 But because things are that way and not otherwise, nor can they be, I came Myself from above to you people of this Earth and am now showing you all the full truth of all forms in life and its good or bad conditions. And you, My Peter, will hopefully now be clear about why I have just said to you: ‘Away with you, Satan!’ – Now forward into the great bay!” (GGJ Book 12, chap. 66)
[i][i][i] This pure worldly spirit should be a pure human soul which uniting herself with the inner spirit, would also spiritualise the material body.
