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.

THE CREATION ON EARTH

SAID: “My friend, in a natural, worldly respect you are of

course completely right, and little could be objected

against it, but in the field of the soul and the spirit, which

is completely unknown to you up till now, you want something

from Me which is completely against every order on this Earth.

[2] Look, on a celestial body where it is the people’s destiny for

what concerns their soul and their spirit to become perfect

children of God, everything must be exactly arranged as it is

arranged on this Earth.

[3] Although your eye can see and your reason can recognize

nothing else except judgment, persecution, robbery, murder,

death, decay and perishability, but it is not as you imagine these

things, but quite different.

[4] Firstly the laziness, which is an inevitable attachment of the

matter of the body, is the greatest enemy of the soul who must

become more and more awake and active, for only through that

can he become completely similar to the Spirit of God in him,

and thus become similar to God. And the hotter the countries are

where people have built their houses, the more they are

threatened by this first enemy of the soul.

[5] If in such countries there would not be all kinds of animals

that are troublesome for man, and if he did not have to take care

for the nourishment of his body, then he also would not take

care for the development of the powers of his soul. He soon

would look like a sea polyp or like the roots of a tree that have

nothing else to do except to suck to them the nutrients that are

suitable to them, from the water, from the soil and from the air

through its organic-mechanical system.

[6] Look, this is the most important reason why all kinds of

things were created for man on this Earth which will wake him

up to various activities – firstly for his body, and then also for

his soul, which is the most important.

[7] For what concerns the second reason, every thinker can

easily discover this for himself. Just imagine the Earth as a

completely uniform big globe. On its vast surface there would

be only completely the same brooks, lakes and seas. No

mountains, no other animals than sheep, no birds except

chickens, and no other water animals than only precisely the

same kinds of fishes everywhere. In the same manner on the

earth’s surface there would only grow one kind of grass as

nourishment for the sheep, as well as only one kind of fruit to

feed the people and the chickens. Furthermore also only one

kind of fruit tree and one kind of tree to build a simple dwelling

hut. And so there also would be only one kind of stone

everywhere, as well as only one kind of metal of which men

would be able to make the simplest utensils for their livelihood.

[8] Now say for yourself how much progress the people could

make in the development of their concepts, ideas and

imaginations in such a world.

[9] I do not have to explain to you how extremely meager their

reason and mind would look like, while they have to become

more elevated and purer. But I point your attention on the very

poor state of development of the soul and the spirit of the living

human beings on Earth who live in regions where there are no

mountains in the wide environment, where only here and there

some uniform grass on the ground is growing, and furthermore

some meager shrubs that are pining away at the shores of a few

ugly brooks and lakes that look like pools.

[10] Such regions are not unknown to you. What does the

development of the spirit of those inhabitants look like? Look,

for the greatest part they are wild. And why? Because they

cannot come to any development of their concepts, ideas and

productive imaginations for the development of the reason and

mind, because of the lack of an as great as possible variety of

the things and creatures that surround them which are necessary

for the higher development of the soul.

[11] On the other hand, look at those people whose country is

8

richly provided with all imaginable varieties, and you will

discover that they have developed. If not in the sphere of the

deepest inner life of the soul and spirit, then nevertheless in the

sphere of the outer mind, reason and imagination, which man

needs if he wants to pass over to a higher development of the

inner life of the soul and spirit. For if you want to climb a

mountain for the beautiful view, there firstly has to be a

mountain, and when there is one, then while climbing you

should not be satisfied with the half height of the mountain –

although it will already give you a very wide view – but

moreover make the effort to also climb the highest tops in order

to enjoy the full view from there.

[12] So also, once men whose reason, mind and imagination are

greatly developed, should not be satisfied with this half height

of life, but make the effort to reach its full height.

[13] You will understand what I want to tell you with this. And

here you have a second reason why God has provided this Earth

with such great variety of all things, creatures and phenomena,

of which you up till now, with all your Alexandrian

development, hardly know the smallest stroke of the little
