Robert Blum’s life on Earth
Robert Blum arrived on Earth under the most extreme penury, and had to contend withgrinding poverty almost to his last years, which nonetheless was his lot for good reason,incomprehensible to the world, of course. His soul and spirit came from that planet whoseinhabitants, as revealed in
The Natural Sun
, are wont to stubbornly shift entire mountains withavid determination; and whatever they don’t accomplish physically, they continue doing asspirits.2.
This man, who was executed on account of his daring, had already in childhooddemonstrated the tenacity of his spirit. Although I Myself had to, in his best interest, placesuitable obstacles in his path whenever he tended to exalt himself, this was of little effect for thisworld, as the persistency of his spirit elbowed him a way out, from his inconsequence to abroader mandate.3.
He was wont to spawn a thousand plans and put them into action forthwith. He was aboveall permeated with social justice, which he did not shy away from implementing. Had hepossessed all the world’s treasures for realising his overriding idea he would have wagered thelot, together with his life!4.
These ideas on social justice he received mainly from the worldly religious school of Ronge
and his colleagues. But this in reality is neither a school nor a church, because it denies Me asthe Lord, making Me into an ordinary man and teacher of antiquity. This ‘Church’ thereforecasts off the very foundation-stone upon which it strives to build its edifice, and its house shalltherefore have feeble foundations.5.
Just like Ronge, so also our man built his socialistic ideas upon sand. To him, everythingthat the world could offer seemed small and feeble. It appeared to be left entirely up to hisoratorical skill to shortly bring down the powers that be.6.
This conviction was so strong in him as to leave him no qualms. Even where I warned himinwardly against undertakings too brazen, this did not hold him back from whatever he set hismind to, it being one of his maxims that a true German will not shirk any sacrifice towards anidea seized upon by his mind.7.
Several distinct successes maintained his zeal, and when he had moved some politicalmolehills he would then tackle the Himalayas. He thereby gained notoriety, and the trust of anentire nation, which however blazed the trail for his earthly downfall.8.
He tested his debating skill at the 1848 German National Assembly several times, whichbrought him much satisfaction, which was of course mainly due to his powerful spirit.Encouraged thereby, he hastened to a big East German city (Vienna) where the crowds actuallybegan to prominently implement his ideas. Whereupon he tried to, as it were, kill thirtyprincely flies with one blow, not considering that I too had a few words to say through theseflies.9.
Our man started off mainly from an idea he borrowed from My word: ‘Be ye thereforeperfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect’; and that only one is Lord, all others being brethren,regardless of status. But he did not in the first instance believe in the One, whom men shouldemulate in perfection. For the Lord, he actually took himself to be – through his debating skill.He forgot that the princes also are humans, in possession of power out of Me; forgetting also thepassage ‘Give to Caesar what is due to Caesar, and to God what is due to God!’
This man was arrested in the above city, where he wanted to realise his ideas of social justice through the power of arms, as well as speech, being charged with sedition and, after ashort trial, dispatched into the beyond. Therewith his this-worldly action was terminated.
