The wisdom
of God reigns over the world!
Struggle, mankind,
to divine His greatness
in this recognition!

1. The Holy Word

Holy is the Word! So holy that I would like to withdraw It once more from mankind on earth, because they have no conception, not even the faintest idea of Its magnitude! I feel urged to protect the Word, to veil It, so that It would never come into contact with the wanton conceit and indifference of these human souls, who in their spiritual indolence have become so incredibly narrow-minded and therefore devoid of knowledge.

What do they still know about holiness! Of the holiness of God and also of His Word! It is pitiful! One could despair and lose heart at this realization. I feel urged to choose from all mankind only a few to whom I would continue to proclaim the Word, ten or twenty only, yet, even these few would not arrive at a concept of true Holiness, nor therefore the right attitude towards the greatness and value of my Word!

To give this Holy Word to mankind is the hardest thing for me to fulfill.

What that means and what is contained in these Words is something you are not capable of comprehending! Thus I stand before you in the awareness, that even the best among you here on earth will never really understand me; will not grasp a tenth part of what comes to them with my Word. You hear It, you hold It in your hands, but you do not make use of Its value for yourselves! I see how Its high values, Its immense powers remain unheeded, while instead you reach out for things that are no more than the most insignificant speck of dust, in comparison with the Word that you have.

I stand before you with this knowledge. Every time it is with a reluctant spirit that I permit you access to the High Grail Festivals, whose meaning, whose seriousness and purest power you will never come to understand anyhow. So many do not even make a genuine effort to at least think of the meaning in the right way! Furthermore, the acts of sealing and Holy Meal! The sealing! Trembling, you would throw yourselves into the dust if you could recognize and consciously see even the smallest part of the infinite life activity in these acts!

Although many a human soul will be gripped by an unfamiliar, blissful sense of the Power of the Light from the proximity of God. However, all this is quickly obliterated again by the intrusion of trivial everyday worries, everyday joys and pleasures.

It is only when a human soul enters the Ethereal Realm, that it does then, gradually come to a new understanding of all that it was permitted personally to experience, here on earth.

Although this too, is but a shadow of the mightiness of the real happening, it is nevertheless enough to shake every human soul to its very depths! So great is the Grace of God that is revealed to it in these happenings, that it can hardly believe that it has been permitted to experience all this. So filled, it would like to shake and jolt the human beings on earth, to make them break through their superficiality and exert themselves here and now to perceive these blessings more fully than in the past.

But a quite useless effort! It is through his own doing that man on earth has become far too obtuse. He has rendered himself incapable of it, through the most zealous efforts on his wrong paths. Therefore, every soul that has awakened in the Ethereal Realm will turn away with bleeding heart, realizing with deep remorse, that while here on earth it was no different itself, and that it can hardly expect anything better from those who are still on earth.

Thus when I think that I must now allow this Holy Message to be spread abroad by my disciples, everything in me opposes it; for I know that not a single one among mankind will ever really know what he receives with It, or what an immeasurably high Grace of God lies in being permitted to hear It! In face of this ignorance, indifference and pretended knowledge of such men, I am to allow something to be offered that comes in purity from the steps of God’s Throne! It is an inner struggle which requires a great effort! Every hour anew!

However there is one consolation for me! In every case of scorn, of derision, in every dismissive comment or sign of indolent indifference by men there is this satisfaction: my knowledge that in his thoughts and deeds each one of them judges himself in the Word, the greatness of which he will not see and will carelessly pass by. It is consolation to me to know that with every word man speaks about my Message he pronounces his own judgment, bringing him destruction or life!

This knowledge allows me to endure everything, overcome everything! Not one soul can escape. As this Sword of Judgment now I hurl the Word at you in fulfillment of the Final Judgment! This lifts the sorrow from me! No matter how much people strain against it, they only injure themselves, they can scoff at it, mock it or shake their heads... everything will strike only them in very quick reciprocal action!

Years have passed since I first became horrified as I observed the human spirits, and began to realize from this, the fate awaiting them in accordance with the Primordial Law of Creation.

I was appalled, because I saw that it would be impossible to help men other than by showing them the way that they must travel in order to escape destruction.

This made me inexpressibly sad, for with men as they are today, there can be but one end: the certainty that the greater part of the entire humanity must inevitably be lost, as long as they remain free to make all their own decisions!

In accordance with the Law in Creation, however, the human spirit can never be deprived of the free will to make decisions! It is an intrinsic part of the spirit! And through this, that is, through themselves, the great mass of mankind will now fall during the present Judgment!

Every single decision made by mankind determines the roads he must journey along in Creation, as also here on earth. The little things connected with his profession and the needs of everyday life are only of minor importance, and often still the conclusion of voluntary decisions made a long time ago. Yet only the decision is free for a human spirit! With the decision, the automatic lever that permits the Laws of God in Creation to work according to the nature of the decision, is set in motion! Such is the free will that the human spirit possesses! It lies solely in the absolute freedom of decision. The spiritual decision, however, immediately releases and sets in motion a hitherto mysterious automatic activity in Creation, which, without the human spirit’s knowledge, continues to develop the kind of volition contained in the decision, bringing it to maturity and so to redemption, which will one day suddenly appear in accordance with the strength of the original decision and the degree to which it has been increased and strengthened by other decisions of a like nature on its way through Creation.

Every man must then patiently bear the final effects of every one of his decisions. He cannot and must not feel this to be unjust; for in the final manifestation, it is always only what lay in his decision. It makes no difference if this decision was intended for someone else; the final effect will strike only its originator. Very often, when the final effect strikes, the original decision has long since been forgotten by the author, whose present volition and decisions may then be entirely different from or even contrary to what they formerly were; but the consequences of his earlier decision are quietly running their lawful automatic course to the end, even without his knowledge.

Man always stands amid the consequences of all his decisions, many of which he no longer knows or thinks of, and he then often regards it as unjust when this or that final effect strikes him unexpectedly. However he may rest assured in this regard. Nothing will strike him which he has not, at some former time, caused to come into existence, or which he has not literally once brought to life through one of his decisions, that is, “placed” into Creation to take effect under the laws! Be it through his thoughts, words, or actions! He has moved the lever for it. For all this, his original volition is required, and every volition brings a decision!

Men continually lament about injustice and ask where is the much-vaunted free will of man, because they do not recognize the Laws of Creation! Scholars write and speak about it, while in reality it is quite simple! After all, a free will can only rest in the capacity to make free decisions, and in nothing else. And this is, and always will be, maintained for the path of the human spirit in Creation. In this connection, man always forgets or overlooks just one important fact: that despite all this, he is and remains only a creature, a fruit of this Subsequent Creation, which has come into being out of its eternal and unchangeable laws, and he can therefore never circumvent or disregard these laws! They will take effect, whether he wishes it or not, whether it suits him or not. He is nothing therein; like a child wandering off alone he can choose any road at will, but remains subject to that particular path, no matter whether it is smooth or rough, or whether it leads to a beautiful goal or to an abyss.

With every new decision, man produces a new path and with it, a new thread in his carpet of fate. But the old still unresolved paths continue to stretch ahead of the newer ones, until they have been completely passed through. These are not yet cut off when a new one is formed, but must be lived through and traveled to the end. Thus, old and new roads sometimes cross each other, thereby producing new turning points.

All this, man has to work out in the experiences of his life, and then he often wonders how this or that can happen to him; for he is no longer conscious of his former decisions, whereas he remains subject to their consequences until these have been lived through and thereby “lived off!” They cannot be removed, except by the originator himself. He cannot turn away from them, because they remain firmly bound to him until they are completely settled.

Thus, all the consequences of every single decision must be carried through and settled to the end, before they fall away from their originator and cease to exist. If the threads of new good decisions intersect with the still existing tracks of old evil decisions, then the effects of these old bad consequences will be correspondingly weakened, through being crossed by what is new and good; they may even be completely dissolved if these new and good decisions are very strong, so that their evil consequences in the World of Gross Matter need only be redeemed symbolically. This too is perfectly lawful, and in accordance with the Will of God in Creation.

All this is living activity in Creation, without man’s ever being able to alter any of it; for it is an activity around and above him. Thus man stands in and under the Law of Creation.

In my Message, you will find the way that leads you safely through the maze formed by the consequences of your decisions, to the Luminous Heights!

However, one serious obstacle lies in your path! It is this obstacle that horrified me: because you must do all this yourselves, each one for himself alone.

This condition lies in the inherent lawfulness of your free will to make decisions, and in the ensuing automatic activity that takes place in Creation and within you!

The volition within the decision forms a path, which leads either upwards or downwards, according to the nature of the volition. However, at the present time men’s volition is leading you for the most part only downwards, and this downward trend, which you are quite unable to perceive, simultaneously narrows and lessens the power of your ability to understand. Therefore the range of your comprehension, thus of your horizon, is diminished, and for that reason you always imagine that you are nevertheless still on the same high level as before; because for you this limit really is the actual highest level! You are unable to conceive of a wider boundary, nor to understand what lies beyond your own, and therefore you reject it all with skepticism, and are quick to call it false or even non-existent.

This is also why you do not readily cast aside your faults! You see them in others, but not in yourselves. No matter how plainly I try to make you understand this, you do not apply it to yourselves. You believe everything I say, as long as it concerns others. However, the faults I find in you, which often drive me to despair, you cannot grasp, because all the walls around your dear “ego” have become too narrow! This is the point at which so much fails, and where I cannot help you; for you yourselves have to burst these walls from within with absolute faith in the mission which I must fulfill.

But that is not as easy as you think. Often you stand before me with troubled faces, and with love in your hearts for the great task, therefore feeling sorry for all those, who either refuse to or who are unable to recognize their faults, and I know that many of these faults, which you criticize so severely in others, and over whose actions you despair, are anchored to a far greater degree in you. That is the worst thing of all! That, too, is anchored in the freedom of decision, and is something that must be left to you, because it is anchored in the spiritual. Although I can condemn you or approve of you, can lift you up or strike you down through the power of the Light, depending on your honest volition, I can never force anyone to take the path that leads to the Luminous Heights! That lies solely in the hands of each individual.

Therefore I admonish you, and show you once more what actually happens: With every step downwards, your ability to comprehend becomes ever more limited, without you yourselves becoming conscious of it! Therefore, you would never believe me when I tell you this, because you cannot grasp it, and so I cannot help you there, unless a new, great and voluntary decision arises out of an intense longing or through faith.

Only there can I mediate power for the victory! the victory over yourselves, whereby the walls and the narrow confines will quickly be broken through by the awakening spirit, wishing to swing itself upward towards the Heights. I show you the way and, if you have the right volition, give you the necessary power for it. Thus I can help wherever there is a genuine volition and genuine request for it.

But another obstacle then bars man’s path. It is the fact that this power can only benefit him if he not merely absorbs it, but uses it aright! He himself must use it in the right way and not let it rest within him; otherwise it will strive away from him to return to its source. Thus, obstacle after obstacle arises, if a man does not exercise an honest volition with all his strength! Only a very few people can overcome these obstacles. Humanity has already grown too spiritually indolent, whereas ascent is only possible through continuous movement and alertness!

This happening is natural, simple and great. A wonderful, perfect justice lies anchored in it which now releases the Judgment.

It is impossible for a human spirit to be saved without humility! Its conceit about its knowledge stands in the way and hinders true humility. Conceit about a knowledge that is no knowledge; for in comparison with his abilities man can really be described as the most stupid of all creatures of this Subsequent Creation, because he is too conceited to receive anything in humility.

There is no point in arguing about this, for it is so. But man does not perceive it, does not want to believe it, which is also a result of his boundless conceit, which is always the inevitable outcome of stupidity. Only stupidity begets conceit, for where there is real knowledge there is not room for conceit. It can only arise within the narrow confines of an inferior imagination, nowhere else.

Where knowledge begins, conceit ends. And since today, the greater part of mankind is living only in conceit, there is no knowledge.

Man has altogether lost the concept of genuine knowledge! He no longer knows what knowledge is! Not without reason does the old adage say: “Only in the highest knowledge of a man there arises the wisdom of the conviction of the fact that he knows nothing!

Therein lies the truth! When man has attained to this conviction, conceit will die in him and he can begin to receive true knowledge.

All learning through studying has nothing to do with knowledge! An eager student can become a scholar, yet be a long way from being called a knowing one. Therefore, the expression knowledge in the sense in which it is used today, is wrong. Even man of today can speak of erudition, but not of knowledge! What he acquires in universities is merely erudition, as the climax and crowning point of learning! It is something acquired, and not his own! Only what is one’s own is knowledge! Knowledge can come only from experience, not from learning!

Thus, in my Message I only show the way, so that the one who follows it may go through the experiences, which will bring him the knowledge. Man must first “experience” Creation, if he really wants to know of it. Through my knowledge, I make it possible for him to experience it, since I myself continually experience Creation!

In the future, therefore, we shall have learned ones and knowing ones. The scholars can and must learn from the knowing ones!

There will be no more conceit in the new Kingdom, in the coming generation! Conceit is the greatest impediment to ascent plunging millions of people who will not or cannot let go of it into annihilation! But this is as it should be; for Creation will thus be cleansed of all useless creatures who only take food and space from others and spread their weight around without offering the slightest benefit. Then there will be fresh air for useful human spirits!
