9. "I tell you: Be and remain steadfast and all fear shall be banished from you forever and with the fear also every sin, even the possibility of falling anew. For what you will be doing now you will be doing in My name and in My love. And if someone acts and speaks in My name and in My love, how could then a sin be thinkable?
10. "I will tell you now what sin actually is, how a man can sin and how he can refrain from sinning.
11. "That is a sin when someone feels an urge within him, sees its advantage, chases after it and seizes it with his desire, changes it into something of his own and then acts in his own interest. From the spoil of such an urge, which self-love concealed within it, there arises an evil mentality permeating the entire person and darkening his mind so that he can no longer distinguish the true from the false and the good from the bad.
12. "However, if someone feels some urge within him, but thinks by himself: 'O Lord, I recognize that You have touched me. this urge comes from You, O Father! Your boundless goodness has shown mercy to me and wants to strengthen me unworthy one in true meekness and in true love for You. O Father, to do this is unworthy of me as You have made me recognize by the tempting urge. All the might is Yours, all power is Yours, You alone are the Lord of heaven and earth. Let me do only what befits me before You, O holy Father, namely, to love You as Your child. But remove graciously this higher urge for action once more from me, as You have given it, for it is a divine power. If I poor and still weak created being and child acted according to it, I would be a being that would have to feel in this point equal to You as I would want to act with this power of Yours to which You alone have a right. Therefore take Your holy power away from me unworthy one and let me remain in my childlike love for You, O holy Father!'
13. "Behold, if I find such humility with someone, do you think I would then take the urge of My power away from him?
14. "Oh no, I tell you, I will then bless this urge in him and will awaken him Myself with the same urge for eternal life. And thus, by the same means by which a man, un sanctioned, might have become a gross sinner, he will be actively united with Me forever and then be able to do the same out of Me a thousand fold and not ever be sinning. For what he is now doing is no longer out of himself, but out of Me.
15. "Do you think that the sinner does anything else but My will?
Indeed, no, I tell you! No one can touch even a hair on his head without My will.
16. "Now you are thinking: 'How can he sin who acts according to Your will? '
17. "I have already shown you what the nature of sin is, and I will now add an example to make it clearer to you.
18. "Someone might be seized with mighty anger at some action of his brother, so much so that he could kill his brother as Cain did. However, he quickly pulls himself together and recognizes where this urge has come from. Yet it is not sufficient to recognize this, but the meek recognition of this powerful foreign urge will soon let him realize that I alone am Lord over life and death. In this realization the one thus touched by My power will sink down before My holiness that has come so close to him and return to Me what is Mine with an honest and immensely grateful heart.
19. "Then I will not take back My power which had seized him, but bless him with this power and awaken him to everlasting life,
20. "Thereupon he will go to his brother and convert him, that is, slay him for the world and with the abundance of My power reanimate him for eternal life.
21. "Who will then be able to say that he has sinned against his brother?
22. "But he who after recognizing the foreign urge within him acted as if unauthorized, though with My power, would he not be a gross sinner like Cain who perverted My power within him when seized with anger and slated his brother?
23. „Thus every sinner, when he has recognized his folly in time and returns to Me full of remorse and love, will be like one righteous from his birth when he puts down before Me everything he had taken unlawfully and then meekly turns back to Me. Truly I tell you, all his sins will be forgiven be their number as the sand in the sea. Nothing shall be taken from him and he shall become great according to the extent of his remorse, humility and love.
24. "But all the more woe betide the stubborn one! - And so, Kisehel, all your sin has come to nothing, and since you have recognized what is Mine within you, you are now as if you had never sinned. (HHG vol. 1, chap. 179)
15. "Now look, dear brother Lamech, in the same manner as we have now used and climbed this mountain, everybody can and shall cleanse himself, and he will then in the easiest possible way reach the lofty, highest pinnacle of his life.
16. "And what did we do towards the cleansing and liberating from snakes of this mountain, which is now so gloriously delighting us all on its height?
17. "Behold, with a weak hazel-rod we first drove out the great old monsters into the fire of perdition!
18. 'The rod is our faith and our full trust in the Lord's grace and mercy; seven times we struck the mountain with the rod and the old and coarse vermin became lively and had to take off.
19. 'These seven strikes signify the full trust in the Lord's grace and mercy through firm, unshakable faith in Him.
20. "But then the mountain was not yet fully cleansed; for it still contained a countless progeny of the evil brood. Again we struck seven times at the mountain, and you saw a vast multitude of young vermin crawl out of the mountain. What does this signify?
21. "Behold, when man has rid himself of the coarse sins which dwelt in his flesh he must enter into his soul there to probe into his propensities and desires. Once he has earnestly recognized them, he must again with his faith and trust strike at the mountain of his life and surrender himself completely to the Lord, and the whole evil brood of propensities and desires will have to flee the soul.
22. "But now there are still innumerable eggs of the brood in the mountain of life. These are all sorts of worldly and selfish thoughts.
23. "And just as from the eggs the young brood is hatched out and soon grows into coarse, noxious vermin, from the thoughts propensities and desires are born which soon grow into actual deeds.
24. "How, then, are these eggs of sin destroyed in the mountain of life? Through the awakening of the inner fire, which is the love for the Lord, through the faith and living trust in Him.
25. "Once this has happened, the mountain is as good as climbed. Thus this mountain represents you in person, and you can now have a dwelling built there to ponder over God and His grace and great mercy.”(HHG vol. 2, chap. 214)
2. And Kisehel did this, but said afterwards to Lamech: "Dear brother Lamech, behold, I have fulfilled your wish in keeping with all my power and acting might conferred by the Lord.
3. "But the purity of this mountain will nevertheless always depend on the purity of your heart.
4. "If you and your descendants will remain in the purity of heart alone pleasing to God, this will always be the case also with this mountain. However, if you will sully your heart through a sin before God its former inhabitants will again begin to infest the mountain. This applies also to those following you.
5. "When you will see a snake crawling on the mountain, remember what I have now revealed to you out of the Lord of Glory, repent in sackcloth and ashes and fast until your heart is pure! Once this is the case the mountain will again drive out its dwellers.
6. 'The greatest thing is the love for the Lord. As long as your heart is filled with the love for God, you and your descendants will be completely incapable of falling into any sin.
7. "However, if you or some of your descendants will slacken in this love, in the mere faith you will have a rather weak protection against the might of sin within you!
8. "For it is by far not sufficient for life for someone to merely know, believe and then say: There is a God.' Truly, this is not difficult.
9. "But it is far more difficult and far more significant to love above all a God Whom one does not see.
10. "Hence, whoever wants to love God, must not only know and believe that He exists, but he must truly recognize God within himself; and once he recognizes God more and more through his diligent searching for Him in His works he will have to love Him more and more, for he will recognize more and more clearly that God is in Himself the supreme and purest, that is, the most unselfish love and the supreme and most holy wisdom in person!
11. 'Thus the true cognition of God is the reason for our love for Him; so let it be everyone's foremost business to recognize God so as to love Him above all.
12. 'This is then eternal life, that we recognize God and then love Him above all; for we came forth from the love of the exceedingly good and most holy Father and can therefore return to Him only through love.
13. "Heed this in addition to these words of God out of my mouth to your heart, namely, that there are two roads leading to the Father: One is called the true, zealous recognition of good; but the other is called 'love'!
14. "You say: 'In view of the preceding elucidation it actually seems to be completely immaterial since the love must be of necessity preceded by the recognition of God.'
15. "Indeed, this is how it appears at first sight; however, when one looks at the matter more with the light of the spirit a tremendous difference emerges.
16. "For you to see such a significant difference all the more clearly, I will demonstrate it to your eyes concisely and clearly through a good corresponding example.
17. "'Thus presume there is in some unknown spot of your great land a gloriously beautiful daughter who is mature for someone to take her as his wife. But to make it known among men she sends out messengers throughout the country.
18. "After this has been proclaimed some say: 'If there were any truth in it she would have come in person and shown herself to us so that we might recognize and choose her for our heart!
19. "'However, since she merely sends word through messengers informing us of how glorious she is, we may or may not believe it.
20. "'On top of it she makes it known that she will accept no one who does not acknowledge beforehand that she is as the heralds proclaimed!
21. “Who would be foolish enough to go to such trouble?'
22. "However, among the many who despise and ridicule this news there are two who think otherwise. The one says to himself: 'I will go and have a good look at her; if she is as the messengers say she is, I will without qualms choose her for my heart.'
23. "But the other says to the messenger, in the ardor of his love: 'Lead me to her; I do not want to probe her over a long time, for I have already ardently embraced her in my heart; I already love her more than anything in the world:
24. "Now when both meet this daughter, the first will promptly be highly amazed, will recognize and choose her; but the second one will say to her: '0 you infinitely glorious daughter of the heavens, forgive me poor simpleton; for I have dared to love you prior to recognizing you and am realizing only now how unworthy my love was of your heavenly nature. So let me again leave you so that I can love you in secret with all the strength of my heart:
25. "Whom, do you think, will this bride accept? - Certainly the one who had loved her prior to recognizing her!
26. "But the first will have to content himself - so as to remain in her heavenly presence - with just looking at her as one of her servants, whereas the second one will be able to enjoy the fullness of bliss in her arms at all times.
27. "Behold, this is the tremendous difference: Whoever loves God already prior to cognition, will gain life in its fullness; but he who loves God after the cognition, will also be living, however, not in the heart but in the realm of grace as a well-rewarded servant.
28. "Heed this well, dear brother Lamech; for it is of the utmost importance for life! (HHG vol. 2, chap. 215)
