35th Sermon of Jesus… The Lord’s Grief over Jerusalem
Already in the revelations about ‘The Spiritual Sun’ you find explained what it means: “And Jesus wept.”
There you are shown that spiritually these words express the deepest sorrow of God Who brought for His children His whole Kingdom of Heaven to their earth, even showed them in a visible form their Creator and Lord of all the universes, and how the blind, in spite of all that, did not recognize Him, the manifestation of supreme love, meekness and grace. They did to Him whatever despicable and painful things can happen to a man, and spurned His teaching, the teaching of love, reconciliation and forgiveness. It was this great blindness of the majority of His contemporaries which made the great Creator, visibly embodied in Jesus, shed tears of sadness. He wept over the decadence of the capital of the Jewish people foreseeing their total end as an independent nation, followed into the distant future by the contrary line of thinking this nation, once chosen by Me for the greatest destiny, has pursued to this very day.
The exultation of My disciples, who in My entry into Jerusalem believed to recognize the climax of My mission, did not suit the Pharisees and scribes at all. When they demanded that I should rebuke My disciples, I replied: “Let them rejoice; for if they keep silent, the stones will speak!”
By this I wanted to tell these deluded people that soon after the rejoicing of My disciples will have turned to mourning the stones of the destroyed walls of their city and temple will show them that they did not recognize Me Who entered within their walls with the palm of peace. They recognized neither the divine teacher nor His teaching from the heavens, longing only for worldly glory and splendour and a worldly Messiah who was to strengthen and fortify them even more in their good living and sordid pleasures.
Not fully fifty years had passed since My death when My warning became a reality. The chosen people had ceased to exist as an independent nation. As I once cast out from the temple the sellers and buyers who had turned the house of prayer into a market, thus later on the Jews were driven out of Jerusalem because what had earlier happened in the temple, they had continued in the city, that is, they had completely forgotten man’s spiritual, higher life and in their worldly-min-dedness striven only for pleasures, power and riches. Thus they themselves fulfilled My prediction which in deep sorrow I made concerning the walls of Jerusalem and the temple.
As then I directed My words of lament to erring mankind, I also now want to do the same again for the now living and the coming generations. Now, too, I am grieved at the fate of many a soul even I, as God, cannot save because I may not interfere with man’s freedom of action.
Thus I see also now how mankind’s ship is fast approaching rocks and reefs in full sail, I foresee the shattering of all their hopes and dreams of happiness and how thousands upon thousands recognize only late, yes, too late, what they should have done, but failed to do. To them, too, I would like to say what I once said to Jerusalem and its inhabitants: “If you would only recognize what could give you peace; for the time will come when through bitter experiences you will feel what you did not recognize at the time of visitation through My blessing and grace!”
Today, too, I could repeat My lament about Jerusalem’s inevitable fate, for also today’s foolish mankind does not recognize its mission, the purpose of its creation and its present and future life. Therefore, a reaction in a completely natural-spiritual way must set in, through which, in accordance with My divine laws, the spirits, souls and beings are once more put in their place, which alone will enable them to attain to the degree of perfection I set them as their highest goal. It is often sad for a mortal father to see his children, notwithstanding all his sacrifices, love and care that was devoted to their spiritual and moral education, turn out failures and take the wrong road, instead of becoming the comfort and joy of his old days; how they repay his love with sorrow, anxiety and often disgrace! But what can he, the disappointed, do? He has no control over his children’s individuality; they are mentally and spiritually free and can think and do whatever suits them. Thus parents often helplessly see all their hopes dashed, one after the other, collapsing like castles in the air.
What here happens to mortal parents, happens also to Me to a much more intense degree. I, the Creator of all the universe, must watch My created beings, destined by Me for the highest spiritual majesty, walk in the opposite direction instead of hastening towards the spiritual in the awareness of their sublime descent. I must watch the spiritual being spurned, derided and described as the fancy of crazy, fanatical bigots, whilst the gross material pleasures of worldly life are praised as man’s most precious possession. I must watch how the external garment is regarded as the most important thing, but the spiritual essence inherent in this casing is ignored.
Here, too, applies what I once said to the Pharisees: Even if My disciples and adherents were silent, the stones – that is, all the material kingdoms of nature – would speak and call to men everywhere: “Awake, mankind, from your worldly intoxication! You seek in vain to deny your destiny and your Creator! If you do not want to believe in the precepts He left you from the time of His visible sojourn on earth, if you want to drown the voice in your own heart which as something “certain” keeps speaking to you and admonishing you, if you want to deny all this – do contemplate nature!”
The keenest over-subtle reasoners, natural scientists and explorers of matter, despite their resistance, all do and must come to realize in the end that high above matter there dwells a great spirit who unites the smallest atoms as well as the great worlds to a whole and who, as can be seen from all his works, can only be a God of love, grace and forbearance and – as was once stated in the parable of the prodigal son – He rejoices more over one regained than over ninety-nine righteous, who do not need to be comforted.
“THERE IS A GOD!” This call resounds from everything. Even the linking together of political and social circumstances shows the attentive observer clearly enough that events do not always take the turn man intended, but that in the life of the individual, as well as in that of whole nations, the results of efforts often differ considerably from what had been hoped for. The might of the Deity becomes manifest everywhere -with love for the ones who love, with anger for the angry ones, with forgiveness for those who forgive.
And as I once shed tears of divine grief over the blindness of the inhabitants of Jerusalem because I foresaw how these erring children would first assault Me physically, then offend against My teaching spiritually, eventually suffer death themselves and cease to be a nation once and for all, since they did not want it otherwise, – now also My heart is filled with grief because of the blindness of mankind.
Everywhere I cause sparks of My heavenly light to be disseminated, everywhere My fatherly call is sounding: “Turn back, deluded mankind! Hear My call, hear the voice of your heavenly Father, Who is warning you prior to the great catastrophe – as once happended to Jerusalem and its inhabitants! Hear the voice that wants to open your eyes and show you how carelessly you are staggering, as if intoxicated, close to the abyss of eternity, risking any moment to be swallowed by it for a long time. In your immaturity you will then in those timeless spaces be able to attain only with much hardship and great effort what here in this trial life on earth can be gained so easily.” As then the destruction of Jerusalem took place not long after My decease, today it will not be long either before your social system, which you believe will last forever, is going to collapse.
In those days, after the destruction of Jerusalem, the Jewish cult on the whole ceased to exist and My teaching began to bear its first fruit among the Gentiles instead of among My people, the Jews. Thus the present so-called representatives of My teaching will discontinue their sinful game with My words and My teaching. There the walls of the temple which, as it were, separated the people from the shrine, collapsed, – and now the spiritual walls are collapsing. What was previously the property of a caste will now become common property. The temple was razed to the ground, and only devastation and horror marked the place where – falsely and misunderstood -the great God was worshipped. The destroyed city walls were the sole remains indicating that there had stood the capital of a nation.
The same will now happen spiritually. One will hardly be able to recognize where once pure truth had been hidden and buried under a tissue of lies. Darkness will vanish, and not the dim lamp from the vault of a temple, but the almighty sun of spiritual light will illuminate and warm all things. Upon the ruins of error and deceit there will be planted the eternally verdant trees of hope which – ever striving upward for the never ending kingsdom of heaven – will be a symbol of the path for remaining mankind.
Therefore, My children, since My light of grace is shining in vain upon the great mass of the erring, – something I have to recognize with sad eyes and a sorrowful heart – you shall take up this light of grace and bear in mind that among so many thousands I have chosen you, so that one day you may become the first solid building-stones of the new temple in a new Jerusalem after the edifice of deceit has been destroyed.
Once I walked visibly among My children and they did not recognize Me; but now when you do recognize Me, or at least have the chance – be it through My words or through My works – to comprehend Me as a loving Father, endeavour at least to save yourselves from the general decadence, so that when the walls of the old world of habit collapse, you may remain standing erect. Prove by your endurance and trust that, although I must also now shed tears of sorrow over many that are lost, there are still some who do comprehend and appreciate the Father’s love and who, notwithstanding all that is so sad, can become a deciding factor in a future unending joy. When others deserve tears of compassion, make sure that in My spirit world tears of joy and delight are shed over you and your attitude and endurance, which shall then be the greatest proof of your victory. Amen
今天，我也可以重複我對耶路撒冷不可避免的命運的哀嘆，因為今天愚蠢的人類也不會承認其使命，創造的目的以及現在和將來的生命。因此，必須以一種完全自然的 – 靈性的方式設定反應，通過這種反應，根據我的神聖律法，精神，靈魂和生命再次被置於其最高位置，只有這樣才能使它們達到完美我把他們設定為他們的最高目標。一個凡人的父親看到他的孩子常常感到難過，儘管他的一切犧牲，愛心和關懷都致力於他們的精神和道德教育，失敗並走錯路，而不是成為他的老人的安慰和喜悅的;他們如何來回報他的愛用悲傷，焦慮和經常恥辱！但是，失望的他能做什麼呢？他無法控制他的孩子的個性;他們在精神和精神上都是自由的，並且可以思考和做任何適合他們的事情。因此，父母們常常無奈地看到他們的希望一個接一個地破滅，像空中的城堡倒塌一樣。
這裡也適用我曾經對法利賽人說過的話：即使我的門徒和信徒都沉默了，那些石頭 – 也就是大自然的所有物質王國 – 都會對所有地方的人說話和呼叫：“從人類中喚醒人類在世俗中毒！你徒勞地否認你的命運和創造者！如果你不想相信他在世界上可見的逗留期間離開你的戒律，如果你想淹沒自己心中的聲音，那麼作為“肯定”的人一直跟你說話並誡勉你，如果你想要否認所有這些 – 做自然的思考！“
“有一個神！”這個呼籲從一切中迴盪。即使將政治和社會環境聯繫在一起，也足以清楚地顯示出給細心的觀察者，即事件並不總是能夠轉變人的意圖，而是在個人生活中以及在整個國家的生活中，努力的結果往往不同與希望的相當。神的威力隨處可見 – 對那些熱愛的表示熱愛，那些憤怒的人表示憤怒，對那些原諒的人寬恕的人表示原諒寬恕。
我曾經為耶路撒冷居民的失明流淚，因為我預見到這些犯錯的孩子將首先在身體上對我進行毆打，然後在靈性上違背我的教導，最終他們自己會遭受死亡，不再是一個國家，而是曾經和所有，因為他們不需要它， – 現在也因為人類的盲目，我的心充滿了悲傷。
到處都是我的天堂之光的火花傳播到處，我的父親呼喊著：“回頭，被人欺騙！聽到我的呼召，聽到你天父的聲音，在這場大災難之前神警告你 – 就像曾經發生過耶路撒冷及其居民一樣！聽到這聲音想要睜開眼睛，向你展示你是如何不經意地，不穩定的走著，彷彿陶醉於接近永恆的深淵，冒著任何時刻被它吞噬很長時間的風險。在你不成熟的時候，你將會在那些永恆的空間中，只有經過非常艱苦和努力才能獲得如此輕而易舉的在地球上的成果，在這個地球上的試煉生活中可以獲得這樣的東西。“正如那時耶路撒冷的毀滅發生在我死後不久，今天在你認為將永遠持續下去的社會制度將要崩潰之前，這個時間不會太長。
那時候，在耶路撒冷被毀滅之後，整個猶太人的信仰就不復存在了，我的教訓開始在外邦人中間而不是在我的人民猶太人中間初見成效。因此，現在所謂的我的教導代表將會停止他們的罪惡遊戲與我的話語和我的教導。在那裡，寺廟的牆壁將人們從神殿中分離出來，崩塌了 – 現在精神的牆壁正在崩潰。以前什麼是種姓的財產現在將成為共同財產。這座寺廟被夷為平地，只有破壞和恐怖標誌著這個地方 – 被錯誤地誤解了 – 偉大的上帝被崇拜了。被毀壞的城牆是唯一的遺跡，表明這是一個國家的首都。
現在精神上也會發生同樣的情況。一個人幾乎無法辨別曾經真理的真相，並將其隱藏埋在謊言的組織之下。黑暗將消失，而不是廟宇拱頂上的昏暗燈光，但靈性光芒的全能太陽將照亮和溫暖所有的東西。在錯誤和欺騙的廢墟中，將種植永遠向上的永不停止的天國之王的永恆青翠的希望之樹 – 將成為剩餘人類道路的象徵。
因此，我的孩子們，因為我的恩典之光在犯錯的人群中仍然發光 – 有 時我必須用悲傷的眼睛和憂傷的心承認 – 你要接受這種恩典之光，並且記住，成千上萬的我選擇了你，以至於有一天你可能成為新的耶路撒冷的新廟宇的第一塊堅固的建築石塊，在這座大廈被毀壞之後。
一旦我明顯地走到我的孩子中間，他們不認識我;但現在當你認識我時，或者至少有機會 – 無論是通過我的話還是通過我的作品 – 理解我是一位慈愛的父親，至少要努力拯救自己擺脫普遍的墮落，以便當習慣崩潰的舊世界，你可能保持站直。通過你的耐力和信任證明，雖然我現在也必須為失去的許多人流下痛苦的淚水，但仍然有一些人理解並欣賞天父的愛，儘管如此悲傷，但仍然可以成為一個決定性因素在未來無休止的歡樂。當其他人值得同情的時候，請確保在我的靈魂世界中，歡樂和歡樂的淚水流過你和你的態度和耐力，這將是你勝利的最好證明。阿門
