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!
6] In some seventy years, they shall look for Jerusalem and for the Temple, and shall find no more the place where the city and the Temple had been standing! And they will then say: ‘Oh, what does it matter about the old place where the Temple stood? Let us take the next best place and let us build for ourselves a Temple of Solomon upon it, and fit it up as it was furnished formerly!
7] Yes, thus will they speak and also act! But as soon as they shall begin to work at the Temple, a powerful fire shall come forth from the earth, and the workmen and material will meet with a hard fate.
8] Soon after several of these unsuccessful attempts, tribes of heathens from the East and the South will penetrate into this country, and devastate it, and you will be scattered over the whole earth, and will be persecuted from one end of the world to the other!
9] Thus shall it be done unto you, because you arbitrarily departed from the ancient doctrines of GOD, and have in their place established your own very worldly human ones, and have fattened yourselves on the great gains which the manipulation of your human doctrines has produced.
10] Read for yourselves the chronicle of the Temple, and the things that took place there in secret, and you will find, from the times of the prophets, things, which the hair of every man who has but a small sense of human justice, must stand on end.
11] So far each priest and prophet has been stoned who seriously undertook to cast out the abominable doctrines of man from the House of Jehovah, and to re-introduce those that are purely divine!
12] How long indeed is it since the High-priest, when he was offering a pure sacrifice in the Temple, was, I declare unto you, throttled by your very own hands!
13] The people that highly esteemed and loved Zacharias, loudly demanded news from you as to what had happened to the man of GOD, when a new High-priest was called to replace him.
14] Then you lied to the people in a most supremely audacious manner, and said with a feigned appearance of veneration, that Zacharias had been praying in the Holy of Holies for the whole people, and an Angel of the LORD whose face shone more than the midday sun had again appeared to him.
15] And the Angel had said unto the astounded man of GOD: ‘O faithful servant of the LORD, you have completed your earthly task, and you have been found just before GOD, therefore as you are with body and soul, like Epoch and Elijah, you shall now leave this earth and follow me to the Throne of the Almighty GOD in Heaven, where a great reward is awaiting you!
16] Thereupon Zacharias was said to have looked towards heaven with eyes that were already quite divinely transfigured, and instantaneously to have disappeared from the Temple and from this earth, in the arms of the Angel!
17] Moreover you then placed a white stone on the invented spot with the inscription: ‘The transfiguration of Zacharias, a man of GOD’ and with that you have again whitewashed yourselves before the people; and then with the people, you honoured the man of GOD with all kinds of psalms, whereas you being his worst enemies had attacked him, and like thieves and murderers had throttled him between the great Altar-of-Sacrifice and the Holy of Holies, whilst he was praying there upon his knees!
18] But as this happened to Zacharias, so this has happened to many a prophet and true High-priest of the Order of Aaron! But afterwards, for the people’s sake, you at once erected to them sublime monuments, and have paid them all veneration up to this hour!
19] Tell Me if it is otherwise! You keep silent, and are now quite dumb with fear because I have disclosed this to your face! You think yourselves of course safe from the arms of worldly justice, through your position. Yes, Yes! Unluckily it cannot reach you as there is no other witness against you except Myself. But I do not need the arm of the world’s justice, neither will I Myself lay any hand upon you, or chastise you: but if you continue in your perversity, then will that happen to you which I have just announced! I have spoken, now do you speak!”
20] Here the judge looked very angry and said to Me: If you wish it, I will make very short work of these monstrous servants-of-God, for your witness sufficeth me entirely!”
21] I said: “Let that be! For behold, I should have more than enough power in My Will and could annihilate them in the shortest possible time! But neither you nor the people, nor I Myself would have won anything by that means! It is sufficient now that we have cast a little light on their dark night; if the day were to begin suddenly, it would render them first of all blind, and with them the whole of the Jewish people. That would happen now, if you were to call them to a sharp account because of their more than numerous and most gross sins. They will entangle themselves in the nets they have laid, and therein will they perish!
22] But everywhere on earth, bounds have been set for man, be it for good or for evil; but, in like manner also bounds have been set to each institution, and also every nation. When it shall be full of the Divine goodness, then the people and its land shall begin to overflow with blessing: if however a nation and its land become full of wickedness, then without any pity, a strict sentence shall be passed upon it. The nation had played out its evil role, and the country shall be changed into a desert, as will be the case with this country in a time not very far off!
23] Whosoever can and will grasp this, let him do so! The time is now at hand in which from the roofs, that spirit shall be proclaimed to the wicked of which they are the children, and their deeds shall be read form their foreheads! For from the same school where I have drawn what I know, all the numerous future disciples of My love shall also draw, and they too shall know what I know, and do what I do! But that time is not yet fully at hand. When however it shall have come, you will hear about it, and act accordingly!
24] I have now spoken! Whoever has still anything to say, let him speak, for I shall only stay among you for a very short space of time, as those who fear that they have lost Me will soon reach Jerusalem and find me here.”
Speech of the boy Jesus to the hypocritical Temple officials (chp. 25, The 3 Days Scene)
The caustic speech of the boy Jesus to the hypocritical Temple officials as His worst adversaries. The abuses in the Temple.
1] I said: “I am now here to announce to you that I am come to carry out the works of Him who sent Me, Whom, according to your own confession, you do not know, but Whom I know well as He lives within Me in His fullness.
2] Moses desired to look upon HIM and yet was allowed to see only His backparts, but was yet dazzled by that sight for three days, and his own countenance became so radiant that he had to veil it when he came to the people, because their eyes would not have been able to endure the brilliance.
3] You however may now well look upon My face, and no unbearable radiance will dazzle your eyes. Why? Because this flesh hides HIM who lives within Me, but nevertheless is more than that which was there! But, you do not perceive it, because before your eyes hangs, and will still hang for a long time, the three-fold covering of Moses, in order that you may surely not recognise Him Who has come unto you out of the very highest heavens!
4] Of course it is easy for you to speak to the judge as he can only bend his ear to your nicely-put words: to talk with ME however is more difficult, as I perceive even the secret thoughts of yourselves, which sound quite otherwise than do the words of your mouth! Therefore you are, to a great degree, repellent to Me, because you wash yourselves clean outwardly, yet inwardly your souls are full of uncleanness.
5] If the judge, in whose heart there is no deceit, has invited you to draw the attention of the people to Me, and to quieten them with the fulfillment of their hope, why do you search for all kinds of unimportant things, in consequence of which such a thing could not possibly be done?
6] I tell you quite frankly, it is you and not the people who do not desire such a thing. You yourselves are My worst adversaries! However that does not matter at all; for, firstly, My time has not yet come, and secondly, this very Temple has been too much profaned by you, for Me ever to be able to take up My dwelling therein. Verily, your prestige shall never be increased through Me.
7] You scowl because Moses forbade you to make any carved image whatsoever of GOD, but it does not matter to you if you make yourselves out to be gods before the people, and teach quite seriously that GOD does nothing without you, and also grants no other requests but the one put through your mouths. Tell Me, did Moses also tell you anywhere to do that?
8] Yes, yes, you ought to lead the people on the way that leads to Heaven, for that is God’s Will, and this, Moses and his brother Aaron ordered. You however do exactly the contrary, and consider your position, GOD, the people, and the Temple, as nothing else but as a very fat cow for milking, to milk which, you pretend alone to have the right from GOD!
9] But I tell you quite frankly that GOD, Whom you deny with every breath and every pulse throb, has never given you this right, neither has HE granted, nor does He grant now, and neither will HE ever grant, your dead and mechanical prayers!
10] For if GOD granted your wild babbling and your raven-like croaking - truly I too should have to know something about it. For what the Father knows, the Son also knows, or: what My love knows, My wisdom also knows! But of ever granting your prayers, neither My love nor My wisdom knows anything at all!
11] And yet you say: ‘If thou, o man, dost pray to GOD for something, it is of no use to thee: if however though givest us an offering, and we pray for thee, then is our prayer of good use to thee! We priests alone may pray effectively, but the people may only give offerings, and thus pray with us by means of the ample offerings!
12] Thus you drain the people doubly, firstly: you take the tithe of all the fruit, and all the first-born of the domestic animals, and make them give you a large ransom for the first-born of man: and secondly, you solemnly and unceasingly ask for offerings from the people, and promise in return long and lasting prayers for them, which however you never say!
13] For you then say to yourselves: If we pray or not, it is of no use to the one who brings the offering: if anything is of any use to him, it is only the offering that he brought to us with a good intention! And thus you do not even perform that for which you have let yourselves be paid!
14] To whom then shall I compare you? You are always against GOD, and entirely resemble ravenous wolves that go about in sheep’s clothing, in order that the sheep should not run away from them, and that they may reach them without any trouble at all, and may tear them with their sharp teeth! But just as your work is now, so also will be your reward in the Kingdom of Souls! I tell you, and you may rely on it, that for you My predictions will not have been made in vain!”
