LET YOURSELF BE INSTRUCTED
BY JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF
Very few people know that from 1851 to 1864 Jesus
gave a much more complete story of the events that
happened during His last 3 years before His crucifixion.
A much more complete gospel than what we can find in
the Bible. This was revealed by Jesus Christ Himself to
a man He choose, namely the Austrian Jakob Lorber who
dedicated the last 24 years of his life in the service of our
Lord by writing down what He dictated to him through
the inner word. He heard the words very clearly in the
region of his heart and wrote them faithfully down.

T this moment I took away the ability of inner sight and

he did not see any more spirit. Then, being full of fright

he asked Me where the spirits had gone now since he

could no longer see, hear and speak to them.

[2] I said: ‘They are still here, just like before, but you cannot see,

hear or speak to them anymore because your soul is still too much

one with your flesh and is still not completely united with God’s

Spirit in him. But if you will strive to unite with the spirit in you,

you will always be able to see, hear and speak to the spirits, which

are around you. Did you well understand this?’

[3] The counselor said: ‘Indeed, but I am feeling now as if I am

drunk. Like someone who sometimes is of a clear mind and soon

after that very foolish and says: I will need years before all this will

be totally clear to me.’

[4] I said: ‘He who searches diligently will also find what he is

searching for. However, man can wear out himself during all his

life – which is generally happening all too often – and in this way

will spoil his body and even more so his soul. But reversed he can

also make great effort unto the eternal benefit for his soul.

[5] When people are attaching so much importance to their body,

which will die after a short time, then why not even more for the

soul whose destiny it is to live eternally? Therefore, be you also

more zealous for the well being of your soul than for the well

being of your body. Then there will be more light and it will

become clearer within you.’

[6] All of them were satisfied with this lesson and praised My

wisdom.

[7] However, Cyrenius said to Me: ‘Lord, why were we also not

allowed to see and speak to the spirits that my counselor saw and

spoke to?’

[8] I said: ‘Nobody of you is as unbelieving as the counselor. For

him an obvious proof was necessary. Now he believes because he

realized the wrong reason for his doubt. But the fact that from now

on he does not have to search with difficulty in himself for proof

that the soul continues to live after the falling away of the body is

no merit of him.

[9] However, he who has not seen what he has seen, believes what

I tell him. And believing is more salutary for the soul than seeing,

because the soul can move more freely in believing than in seeing.

I know your faith and know that the works that you have seen Me

perform serve as absolute proof for the total truth of what I say,

and therefore it would have no sense to show you the deceased

who would say to you that I am telling you the truth.

[10] And when by your efforts you will be full of faith, you also

will come to the true and free vision out of yourself that will not

compel your soul. Look, this is the good reason why you were

not allowed to see what the counselor who was full of doubts

had seen.’

[11] When Cyrenius and the many other guests heard this from Me

they thanked Me a lot for this explanation and after that they were

truly glad that they had not seen and spoken to the spirits that

appeared.

[12] In the mean time the evening had come and because of that

the lights were lighted, and they announced to us that the evening

meal in the great dining-hall was served. Cyrenius stood up to

invite all those who were present to partake of the evening meal.

But some counselors excused themselves saying that they first had

to inform their home because otherwise they would wait for them

with the evening food.

[13] But I said to them: ‘Listen to the will of Cyrenius. Your

families are already informed that you are now invited here as

a guest.’

125

[14] The counselor asked: ‘Who was able to inform our families of

this in such a short time?’

[15] I said: ‘Precisely the same One who is capable to calm down

the storm at sea. Therefore stay and believe that it is so.’

[16] After these words all of them stayed and we went to the

dining-hall. There was a special table for Me, Joseph and James

and also for the Greek Anastocles with very well-prepared Jewish

food and an excellent wine.

[17] When Joseph saw this special attention for us he said to

Cyrenius: ‘But great friend and ruler, why this special attention for

us who are so few? We also would be satisfied with the food that

you Romans are taking.’

[18] Cyrenius said very friendly: ‘Friend, I still know you from

Ostracine and know that you are strictly keeping to your Jewish

laws, and therefore it was my duty to take care of you in such a

way that your conscience would not be oppressed. But we,

Romans are accustomed to our food, which in the evening mostly

consists of the flesh of animals, which you do not eat. Thus, do not

feel burdened for the fact that I let this special food be prepared

for you.’

[19] This made Joseph to calm down, and we took place at our

table. And the Romans took place at the big table, but in such a

way that Cyrenius was sitting very near to us during the meal in

order to discuss with us about different things.
