7. THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT EXPLAINED
 Then we all head quickly to the tables and consume our meal. This time there was no talking during the meal; but after the wine had been enjoyed, it began to get very lively in the company. Beside the table at which I was sitting with Cyrenius, Cornelius, Faustus and Julius, with My disciples, with Ebahl, Jarah, Kisjonah, Philopold, with Ouran, Helena, Mathael and his companions, with the angel Raphael and the boy Josoe, a new table had been set up for our Persians; all the other guests that we already knew sat at tables which had been specially set up
for them, according to how they, as we knew, belonged together in society.
 But everyone wondered at the pleasantly warm evening after such a terrible storm; and in particular they wondered at the complete dryness of the ground where only a few hours before
the water had been a few shoes’ high. Ouran asked Me what we would do about accommodation for the night for so many people. He was willing to take in as many as his tents would hold, but since we were dealing with the accommodation of several hundred, his tents would not be enough by far!
 I said: “Friend! Adam and his first descendents had neither tents nor huts nor houses comfortable for anything; the ground of the Earth and a shady tree was their all, and they spent very many nights under the open sky and were healthy and strong. They did not have even a cover for their body; a wreath of fig leaves to cover their private parts was their entire clothing, and they all reached an age of several hundred years! But now people have discovered all sorts of comforts of life and have created many hundred thousands of paradises for a lost earthly one, and behold, now reaching the age of a hundred has become a miracle!
 Look, the effeminacy of man is to blame, who distance themselves from the nature of this world, which has the designation in all things to bear the people and to feed them and to keep them strong and healthy!
 Therefore, My Ouran, do not worry about shelter for all these many gue
[sts; the good and healthy ground will accommodate them all very well! Whoever is overcome by sleep can rest very well on a pillow of stone; if the stone beneath his head annoys him, then the person is no longer tired and too much in need of rest, and then he can stand up again and go to work!
 Soft beds make people soft and take away the necessary strength of their limbs, and a too long sleep weakens the soul and the muscles of the body. The nature of a person is like an infant whom nothing feeds as well as the mother’s breast; and those children who received food from the breast of the strong mother for a long time – assuming that she is as healthy and unspoilt as Eve – become as strong as giants and the battle with a lion will not tire them out.7] To the same extent the nature of this Earth is a true mother’s breast for man, if they do not distance themselves from it through all sorts of unnecessary softeners. But once the people have distanced themselves from this great mother’s breast and isolated themselves from her strong influence, then if they ever have to come to a breast that is rich in milk, they act in the same way as a grown man if he has to drink the milk from a mother. He is so disgusted he could throw up. What strengthened him as a child and fed him in the best way makes him sick and nauseous as an adult who has long grown away from his mother’s breast.
 Now, man cannot always drink on his mother’s breast to get strength and life for his muscles; but he should never distance himself too much from the breast of Mother Earth if he wants to
become healthy, strong and old in the body.
 Moses said: “Honor your father and mother, that your days may be long and healthy on the Earth! With this Moses not only described the biological father and mother, but just as well the Earth and its constant life-giving power. Man should not turn his back on this, but instead keep it in high respect, and he will receive every blessing for that which Moses physically prophesied. The respect for the physical father and mother is good and necessary when the circumstances are according and seemly; but if what Moses prophesied is the word of God, then it must also have a general and uninterrupted effect like the sunlight!
 But if Moses’ prophecy is only limited to the fact that only those who respect their parents have to maintain a long life and health on the Earth, then things obviously look very bad for those who have often lost this in the cradle and were then brought up by strangers! How should they respect their true parents whom they have never known?!
 Many children are often found on paths and streets; cruel mothers have conceived them in their lust and thrown them out somewhere soon after their birth. Such foundlings are often taken in by some warm-hearted and compassionate person and looked after; they then owe all their love and respect to these people. Moses says nothing about such adoptive parents, instead only about really true parents!
 But now the well-brought up foundling cannot possibly honor his true parents, because he firstly does not know them at all, and even if he did, he would secondly truly have no obligation before God or before all people to respect them, who conceived him through sinful lust and who, when he was born, immediately gave him over to death. But because such a person then according to Moses cannot possibly love and respect his true parents, would he then have no claim on Moses’ prophecy? Oh, would this then be very pretty indeed and would it be terrible as the word of God!
 And then there are parents who bring their children up in all things that can only be called bad. Already in the cradle they plant a genuine satanic arrogance in them and teach them to be
hard and insensitive to everyone; such tiger parents teach their children at an early age to be cheeky, liars and deceivers! Should Moses really have meant his commandment for such children who respect their vicious parents with all badness and evil because the parents want this from their children?
 What do the children of thieves, robbers and murderers really owe their parents? They can only naturally honor their parents if they are the same as their parents to a very great degree and do what their parents always do, like: through theft, robbery and murder of foreign travelers! Can Moses’ prophecy really apply effectively to such children as well?
 The only somewhat clear world reason must tell you that such a prophecy along with the Law of Moses would be a scandal of the first category for all divine wisdom! How can God, the highly wise, give a law as a consequence of which even an angel in a fleshly body would have to owe love and all honor to parents who incarnated from the lowest hell?!
 You see that Moses’ Law, seen from this point of view, would be the greatest and craziest nonsense!
 So on the one hand it is clear and proven that everything that Moses said and decided is the pure word of God and therefore can eternally hide no nonsense in itself; but on the other hand, if one examines and observes Moses’ Law in the old familiar and foolish way, as it has been examined and observed so far, it must be the most obvious nonsense before the judge’s seat of all better human reason!
 Wherein lies the reason then that the Law of Moses, as it has been observed so far, must be nonsense despite the purely divine origin? It lies in the powerful misunderstanding of what Moses showed mainly with this Law, the general parents of the great nature, namely the Earth, as the created world for the human race as father, and its lap, from which countless children of all types and sort are born, as the true mother! These original parents should constantly be honored and obeyed by man, and his back should never be turned to them in an effeminate way. Only then he will receive a long life in a healthy body and also a true well-being.
 A diligent person can also learn from these old parents the most goodness, greatness and truth, and build a great ladder on which the original father Jacob saw the angels of heaven climbing up and down. Whoever seriously researches nature will force many blessings to come into the light for himself and for his brothers for their well-being.
 Therefore, My dear Ouran, do not be afraid if you have to spend a night in the lap of your old physical mother – nothing bad will happen to you!”
98. THE FOURTH COMMANDMENT ACCORDING TO THE PHARISEES
 Ouran is now quite contented and says that he has never heard anything as truly and practically wise, and he will also follow this advice very carefully. But most of all our Persians
 Jurah says: “Yes, that is a light from above; for no mortal has ever discovered that! So I would like to have all Ten Commandments explained to me! Things are so close and so clear, and we have never been able to reveal them with all our sharpness of reason! But I must ask something nonetheless!”
 Shabbi says: “I truly do not know about which point there could still be any more question!?”
 Jurah says: “Don’t you know then that as far as the obligations of the children towards their parents are concerned, there has long been a new law, according to which a son or a daughter would do better to lay a sacrifice in the temple than to honor his father and mother?! This new law does not replace the old, it is true, but it represents a better means to achieve the prophecy of Moses than Moses’ Law itself. But I would like to speak to the primary law-giver himself, since the extraordinary circumstances have now come together so wonderfully, and learn what the Lord says to such a new law!
 On the one hand, if a child has very bad and corrupt parents, this law seems to me to be correct; but if a child who is frivolous in nature has very good and worthy parents, who deserve all respect, love and honor from their children before God and all people, then this law, which seems very grabby like the temple, is not correct at all. The whole law has a strongly human smell, and there is very little divinity in it; but there again is another law which says: „Those who sit on the chairs of Moses and Aaron, those you should always listen to and do what they command!”
 But this law is a real camel on which the Pharisees have already brought many false and bad wares disguised as genuine to the temple, and the nation must buy it for the very high price of their moral freedom as completely genuine. That is a bad thing, and such a law which only gives certain people the privileges seems to me like a hellish hole through which Satan always has an entrance to holiness; for these privileged holy people overstrain themselves, are surrounded in the beginning quite piously with a cover of a holy nimbus of a prophet, but then later they become seriously domineering and supertyrannical, arrogant and extremely proud – but still sit on the chairs of Moses and Aaron! But I think, brother – you know, just between us – here Satan might as well take possession of these holy chairs! And such true representatives of Satan on the
chairs of Moses and Aaron have introduced many evil human statutes replacing the divine, and we have to taste them because the camel-like law of hell orders us to listen to them who sit on
the holy chairs and to do what they command.
 Yes, the law in itself would be quite in order if one had the assurance that only the most worthy followers of Aaron and Moses would be preaching on the holy chairs; but what a true dragon nation has sat on the chairs and thrown the most indignant laws into the eyes of the seeing people like rough sand so that the largest part would go blind! And such laws transcending all craziness exists then for the greatest torture for humanity, and no-one trusts themselves any longer to shake off this yoke. Then in the end pure reason begs the question whether God knows anything about it, or whether there is a god at all who can see such an abomination in his sanctuary!
 Well, such a revelation from Him would certainly be in the best position to show us the purest and truest content, and I would like to now ask Him a question right away! What do you
think, should I risk it or not?”
99. THE LORD EXPLAINS THE PRECEPT OF THE PHARISEES
 I immediately answer instead of Shabbi and say: “Listen, My friend Jurah, your question is just and of great importance; you do not need to repeat it to Me for I know anyway what is bothering you!
 You see, it is true that there is a commandment, but only since the time of the judges, where it is commanded from the mouth of a seer to listen to those who sit on the chairs of Moses and Aaron and to do what they order from the spirit of the Lord; but only if their works are good. If their works are bad, they should be pushed off the chairs by the most worthy descendents
 But those on the mentioned chairs knew very well how to disguise their deeds. Instead of the worthy descendents of Aaron and Moses only vicious wolves sat and are still sitting on the holy chairs and as such they have scattered laws among the people as divine will, before which the world even must shudder!
 But think back to how often I have let these false descendents of Moses and Aaron be chastised through the mouth of the holy prophets, and how often I have tamed them with the sharpest rod! But what good did it do? Things became better for a time; but soon after they became worse than before, ntil it has now become so bad that it can never get any worse. They have filled the barrel with every vice, and only a few drops more and it will immediately begin to overflow and will destroy them all like Noah’s flood; of that you can be fully assured!
 But like many, the law of sacrifices in the temple has also replaced Moses’ law concerning the obligations of children towards their parents. At the beginning it looked very good and just appearance and concerned only those children whose parents – as was often the case – were true throw-backs of humanity. But these strangely often had very good and honest
children, who devotionally saw and knew the cardinal sins of their biological parents very well. The demands which their evil parents placed on them made their hairs stand on end; but in the
misunderstood Law of Moses it was written that they should honor their parents above all through obedience!
 For such reasons, at the time when the temple was still good, such unhappy children asked in the temple what they should do, and said: “It is in any case true that Moses commanded from God to obey the parents and to respect them highly and to honor them all one’s life, so that one would live long and things would go well on Earth; but Moses also commanded not to kill, not to
steal, to speak no untruths, to commit no indecent acts with virgins and even less to covet the neighbor’s wife. But their terrible parents now demand such things from them! What should they do now in order not to sin against Moses’ commandments?”
 Then the High Priest, filled with the spirit of God, spoke: Leave these parents of yours, sacrifice a gift instead of the bad obedience, and pray to God, and it will be better for you and also through the mercy from above for your undutiful parents!
 And then it happened that such children left their wicked parents, brought a sacrifice to the temple for themselves and for their terrible parents and then sought to enter service with good people in order to lead a life pleasing to God.
 So far and in this much the law was entirely of divine origin. But with time the vicious wolves who sat in sheep’s clothing on the chairs of Moses and Aaron generalized this law, and then even the undutiful children of quite good and honest parents could buy themselves free of obedience towards their parents through sacrifices, in order to then be able to sin quite freely and
without a conscience!
 In this way the double commandment of God was also twice suppressed and in its place a purely hellishly human statute was set which naturally must be an abomination before God because it is quite against His order; for only a somewhat pure-thinking person must see at first glance that such a statute can never be divine, but only of a hellish and satanic origin! In any case, this all shall soon have an end, and then there will not be much more to strive against.
 Otherwise it is surely in order that a weak man lets himself be led by a strong man! But parents are always stronger than their children; and it is therefore quite in order that the children let themselves be led by their parents; but if the weak man notices that the strong man wants to throw him off a deadly precipice, the weak man would do well to get away from the strong man and find himself a safe place.
