 See, at some stage I read a book with the title “Wars of Jehovah”, and therein, of course in a very mythical language, mention was made of the fall of the first angels!
 In the beginning God – of course endlessly long before any worlds were created – had created 7 large spirits corresponding to the 7 spirits in God. He gave them great powers and similar great wisdom, so that also they were able, just like God, to create smaller spirits, completely resembling themselves, in very great numbers, and so infinitive space was filled with countless legions of spirits.
 The greatest and mightiest of those 7 first spirits was according to the text obviously Lucifer. But he lifted himself above his power and size, didn’t want to become only God’s equal, but wanted to rule over God. God became angry, seized the traitor and pushed him for eternity into judgment. But the six great spirits stayed, along with their countless many lesser spirits, with God and served Him only from eternity to eternity, while at the same time the lesser spirits of Lucifer as evil devils and as for ever rejected beings by God, had to burn in God’s fire of rage to endure continuously the greatest pain without relief. – Now, what do you say to that, as a surely one of the first angels of God?” (GGJ Book 16, chap. 36)
37. THE 7 FIRST SPIRITS OF GOD
 Raphael said: “This is only a corresponding picture of precisely that which I just have told you about the creation or successive formation of a complete heavenly body.
 The first great spirits are the very thoughts in God and the ideas arising from them.
 The mystical number 7 means the perfect original divine and God-resemblance in every thought originating from Him and in every idea which He placed outside Himself.
 The first in God is love. It can be found in all created things; since without it nothing is possible.
 The second is wisdom as the light emanating from love. This you can see in the form of every being; since the more a being is receptive to light, the more developed, defined and beautiful will be its form.
 The third that arises out of love and wisdom is the effective will of God. Through it the beings thought of become reality, that they truly exist, otherwise all thoughts and ideas of God
would be, what your hollow thoughts and ideas are, which never are put into action.
 The fourth that again originates from the three, and is called order. Without order no being could have any permanent and stable form and therefore could also never reach a certain
destiny. If you place an ox in front of a plough and he would change his form and shape, for example, into a fish or a bird, would you ever reach a goal with him? Or you wanted to eat a fruit and in front of your mouth it would turn into a rock – what use would be to you? Or you go somewhere on firm ground and the road under your feet would turn to water – would even the
most solid road be any use to you? See, all that and countless other things are prevented by the divine order as the forth Spirit of God!
 The fifth Spirit of God is called the divine earnestness, without it no existing thing would be possible, since it is equal to the eternal truth in God and provide all beings with continuance, reproduction, prospering and ultimate perfection. Without such spirit in God things would be very bad with all beings. They would all be like mirages, which appear to be something, as long as you can see them; but only too soon the conditions of production change, because earnestness is lacking, and the beautiful and wondrous images melt away into nothingness! They are well-ordered to look at, but since no earnestness prevails in the producing reason they are nothing
more than highly transient images that can impossibly have a permanent existence.
 See, there we have already the five great first spirits of God, and therefore let’s move on to the last two, and therefore listen to me further!
 Where the highest love, the highest wisdom, the almighty will, the most perfect order and the unchangeable firm earnestness are present, it is apparent that the highest and forever unachievable patience must also be present; since without it everything would become a rush and ultimately change into an inextricable chaos of the old wise men.
 If a master builder builds a house, he cannot, alongside his other required characteristics, ignore patience; since if he lacks this – believe me – he will never manage his house.
 I say to you: If it wasn’t for this spirit in God, already for an endless long time, no sun in infinitive space would have provided light for any earth, and the world of spirits would be a strange place completely without beings?! Patience is the mother of the eternal, unchanging mercy of God, and if this sixth spirit would not be in God, where and what would all the creatures be in relation to the almighty God?!
 If in some way we transgress and therefore become apparently subject to the destructive curse of the divine love, wisdom, divine will, who’s seriousness follows the preceding order, we bump into divine patience, which in time will and must bring everything into equilibrium, since without it all creatures irrespective how perfect, would be subject to the eternal judgment of destruction.
 The divine patience would together with the preceding five spirits in God be able to create one or even countless many people on the world bodies, and would also be able to maintain them; but then one or even countless many people would live forever in the heavy flesh, and the soul ultimately becoming free from the bonds of matter would forever be unthinkable. At the same time animals, plants and people would continuously reproduce and finally live in such large numbers on a space limited world body so close and crowded together, that one could not get out of the way of the other. But this is only possible, if a world body under the rule of the infinitive divine patience would sufficiently mature, to carry and feed plants, animals and people. Yes, the creation of a material world, given the already known six spirits, would be infinitively slow, and it would be very doubtful if ever a material world would come into being.
 But patience is, as already said, the mother of divine mercy, and as such is the 7th Spirit in God actually mercy, which we also can call gentleness. This makes everything right. It puts
in order all the preceding spirits and causes the timely maturity of a world as well as all the creatures on it. For everything a certain time period is set, and the matured spirits can therefore
soon and easily reach full redemption and enter into their eternal freedom and fullest independent life.
 This 7th Spirit in God caused also that God Himself came into the flesh, to redeem within the shortest possible time all the imprisoned spirits from the hard bondages of a necessary judgment of matter, therefore also this His undertaking – the redemption – the new recreation of all heavens and all worlds and can be called the biggest undertaking of God, since herein all 7 Spirits of God in complete equilibrium collaborated, what has been previously no so much the case and according to the spirit of order in God was also not allowed to happen. Since previously this 7th Spirit in God as explained to you just know, was only insofar with the other spirits active, so that all thoughts and ideas of God could became reality; but from now on he will act more mightier and the result of that is precisely the most perfect redemption.
 And see, these are the 7 spirits which you did not understand, and everything that has been created out of the 7 spirits of God, corresponds in everything and all with these 7 spirits of God and carries them in itself. And the eternal continuous creation and the equal continuous creating, is, what the first wise men of this earth called ‘The Wars of Jehovah’.”
38. THE WARS OF JEHOVAH
 (Raphael) – “Just as the 7 spirits or special properties in God continuously battle with each other, so that one always challenges the other to become active, in the same way you can very easily recognize the same battle to a more or lesser degree in all creatures of God.
 Love on its own is blind, and its aspiration is, to attract everything towards itself. But in this aspiration it ignites, and it becomes light and as such cognition and recognition is added to love.
 Can’t you see now, how the light fights against the single aspiration of pure love and brings order and consideration to love?!
 But at the same time from this battle or war awakens the will as the active arm of love and its light, who turns what the light has wisely put in order into action.
 But then out of cognition of love through its light and by the power of both, at the same time the very order is generated, and fights against everything disorderly by the light and by the will
of love, and you again find an eternal steady war of Jehovah in Him as well as in all creatures.
 Everything would be in good order, if one could find some guarantee, that this, what the four spirits so beautifully and orderly placed into action, had some permanence. But all the still so marvelous works of the first four spirits resemble the play of children, who with great enthusiasm and joy masterly put some things orderly into action, but shortly afterwards don’t like the product anymore and destroy it with greater zeal than they had when creating. And verily, friend, with the permanence of all the creation, things would look very bad.
 But to prevent this, resulting from the great pleasure for the perfect success of works, arises earnestness from the four spirits as a fifth spirit in God as well as in His creatures, and this spirit continuously fights against destruction and termination of the once created works, similar to a person who became sensible and serious, who for example has built himself a house and planted a vineyard and does everything to maintain and use the house and the vineyard, but not trying to destroy the house and the vineyard soon, as I have shown you earlier with the products of the children. And see, this is – as already said – another war of Jehovah!
 But in time the house built will show some deficiencies, and the vineyard will still not produce the desired harvest, and the builder regrets his hard labor and his earnestness during his
zealous activity, and he wants to destroy the work and erect a new one in its place; but then the sixth spirit rises against such earnestness and is called – as already indicated – patience. And see, it maintains the house and the vineyard! And this is again a new war of Jehovah!
 Now, patience on its own, united with the preceding spirits, would not carry out any special improvements at the house and at the vineyard, but would nicely leave everything in place; but
then comes the 7th spirit, namely mercy, containing in itself gentleness, concern, diligence, charity and generosity. And see, man starts to improve his house in a good way, so that deficiencies of any importance are no longer present, and digs and fertilizes the vineyard, so that it soon produces a rich harvest! And see again, this is once more a battle or a war of Jehovah in man as well as in God and in angels!
 And so is the true, perfect life in God, in angels and in man a continuous battle of the 7 spirits I have showed you. But this battle is in God and in angels not something, as if it was a case that one or the other of the 7 spirits wanted to suppress the other spirits and make them inactive, but the battle is always of such a nature, that one spirit continuously and with all its strength and power supports the other, and therefore every spirit completely present is in the other. Love is present in all the other six and in the same manner the light or wisdom in love as well as within the other five spirits and so forth, so that in each individual spirit all the others are also completely and fully active and continuously support each other in the most beautiful harmony.”
39. THE DISHARMONY OF THE 7 SPIRITS IN MAN
 (Raphael) – “This should also be the case in a person; but unfortunately it is not so. The ability is given to each person, however without being completely developed and exercised.
Only a few people exist who bring all the 7 spirits in them to a full and equal activity and thereby become truly equal to God and us angels; but, as said, many are turned away from it and worry very little about it and thereby do not at all recognize the true secret of life inside them. Such blind and half dead people cannot recognize the very reason of life in them, since they are only guided and ruled by one or the other of the 7 spirits.
 And so the one lives purely out of the spirit of love and does not pay attention to any of other spirits. What else is such a person other than a voracious predator who never gets enough? Such are full of self-love, full of jealousy and full of miserliness and are stonehearted towards all his neighbors.
 Again others have an enlightened love and are as such also quite wise and can give their neighbors quite good teachings; but their will is weak and therefore they are not able to put
anything to work.
 Again there are others, with whom the spirits of love, light and will are very active; but it looks very weak with the spirits of order and proper earnestness. Those type of people will be able to talk very clever and sometimes even quite wise and are able to put here and there a very few things to work; but the true and completely out of all 7 spirits wise person will very soon from their words, speeches and works notice, that there is no order and no coherence.
 And again there are people who have love, light, will and order; but they lack the spirit of earnestness. Therefore they are afraid and fearsome and are not able to provide their works with
 Again others are full of earnestness and courage; but the patience is lacking. Such people normally rush too much and often ruin with their impatient zeal more than make good. Yes, friend, without the right amount of patience there is nothing; since who doesn’t have the right amount of patience, speaks a certain death sentence over himself! Since man has to wait until
the grapes are fully ripe, if he wants to have a good harvest. If he is opposed to that, he must ascribe it to himself, when instead of in the end harvesting a noble wine he only produced an undrinkable sour wine.
 Patience is therefore in each and everything a necessary spirit: first to control and to restrain the spirit, which I called earnestness, who often wants to go to infinity – since this spirit in conjunction with love, wisdom and will degenerates into the most severe form of arrogance, who as is generally known does not find any limits in man, and secondly, because patience, as I already have shown you, is the mother of the spirit of mercy, which is the spirit who provides by its backward action to all preceding spirits the divine-spiritual perfection and makes it possible for the soul in man to reach the true rebirth in the spirit.
 Therefore has the Lord Himself laid it onto the hearts of all of you to love God and your neighbor, by saying: “Be merciful, as your Father in heaven is merciful, and be meek and humble, just as I am with my whole heart meek and humble!”
 The Lord instructed you all to develop especially the 7th spirit, since in this last spirit all preceding spirits are contained and trained. Who therefore, with all zeal, develops and strengthens this last spirit develops and strengthens also the preceding spirits and thereby reaches soonest and most certainly perfection. Who starts his development with one or more of the preceding spirits, reaches only with great difficulty or often not at all the complete and full perfection of life, since these preceding spirits on their own does not contain the 7th spirit in them, while the 7th spirit on its own necessarily contains all preceding spirits in him.
 And see now, this is also the continuous fall of the angels or the thoughts and ideas out of God – what we also can refer to as the outgoing powers of God, for as long as they haven’t in their entirety in the being of man, brought this 7th spirit to a true and highest perfection. Since all the preceding spirits have been given to nearly all the creatures partially more or less free; but the 7th spirit must first be attained by man’s very own diligence and zeal.
 And just as by such attainment all the preceding six spirits reach their true meaning and true purpose of life, in the same manner, through it, the whole person reaches the fullest freedom of life and independence. – And now I ask you again if you have comprehended all that?”
