Even today, very few people are aware that from 1840 to 1864, and from
1870 to 1877, JESUS CHRIST dictated to the Austrian musician Jakob Lorber and to German Gottfried Mayerhofer the greatest and
largest spiritual message ever offered to humanity.
The revelations were
received by the two scribes of the Lord through Inner Word, meaning
Lorber and later, Mayerhofer heard them very clearly in the region of their
heart and wrote them faithfully down, without adding any personal contribution.
perfectly awake, they didn´t experience any states of altered consciousness,
nor were they some mediums for automatic writing whose hands were guided by a
The writings of Lorber and Mayerhofer,
comprising tens of volumes are known as THE NEW REVELATION, the
extraordinary spiritual teaching that JESUS CHRIST brought to mankind,
almost 2000 years after his earthly life.
This life of the Lord is also described in
Lorber´s writings: The childhood of Jesus, The
three-days-scene at the temple in Jerusalem and, most of all, in the central work of the New Revelation, The Great
Gospel of John (comprising11 books in the original German variant, last one written after Lorber´s death, through inner
word, by a friend, Leopold Engel).
writings of Lorber describe the most important spiritual moments in the life of the first people on earth - The Household of God, other
present natural and cosmogonic facts from a spiritual perspective - The Earth andthe Moon, Saturn, Natural Sun, Spiritual Sun, The Fly, etc., other depict
some peoples life after the physical death - Robert Blum - From Hell to
Heaven, Bishop Martin - Sunsets into Sunrises, Beyond the threshold,etc.
The most important
writings of Gottfried Mayerhofer, translated in English, are Lord´s Sermons
and Secrets of life, first revealing the moral-spiritual interpretation
of Lord´s life, the second presenting in a comprehensible synthesis the
spiritual causes that lie beyond the phenomenal world and life.
Great Gospel of Johnis the fundamental godly revelation of
all times. It
took 37 years to finish. Describing in great
detail the life and teaching of the Lord in His last three years on earth, it
also answers very clearly to all possible philosophical questions
regarding the origin of man, life and universe, the purpose of creation, the
life of the human soul, the reason of God´s incarnation in Christ, in fact, to
almost every topic that scholars and clergy had to speculated on during the
last 2000 years, surpassing everything that so far has been said on these
Jakob Lorber was born on 22 July 1800, in a small place called Kanischa, near the lower
Styrian country town Marburg, today´s Maribor in Slovenia.
He attended teacher's college and primary school course, after which he didn 't
immediately receive an appropriate position. This prompted him to intensively
continue his musical studies, which consisted of composing, teaching the
violin, providing singing and violin lessons, composing and occasionally giving
a concert. During these years, Jakob Lorber followed with great enthusiasm his
spiritual inclination, diligently studying the Bible as well as the works of
men who followed the "inward path", among others such mystics as
Justinus Kerner, Jung-Stilling, Swedenborg, Jakob Böhme, and Johann Tennhardt.
at the beginning of 1840,the theatre in Triest offered him a position as second
orchestra conductor. But on the morning of 15 March 1840, he experienced
something, which gave his life a different direction. He clearly heard a Voice
in his heart which ordered him to: "Get up, take your pen and write!"
abandoned all travel preparations and obediently sat down and wrote on paper
what the mysterious voice dictated. It was the introduction to his first work, The Household of
(Die Haushaltung Gottes):
thus the good Lord speaks for everyone; and that is true, faithful, and
certain. Whosoever wishes to speak to Me, should come to Me and I will place
the answer into his heart. But only the Pure, whose hearts are full of
humility, will hear the sound of My Voice. And whosoever prefers Me to every
thing and the world, and loves Me like a bride loves her groom, with such a
human being I will walk arm in arm. Such a person will for all times look upon
Me as one Brother would look upon another, as I have looked upon him from
eternity before he existed."
"This you are given for your solace. I value you
because I know your heart; it only needs the right guide who will bring it onto
the right path. For the time being I Myself will be this Guide. And so follow
My advice and you will certainly never regret it. All this I, your most
gracious Father, am telling you. Amen."
