A LETTER TO MOM AND DAD FROM CAMP HEAVEN

Dear Mom & Dad,

This is the first chance I had to write to you. I'm sorry if I made you worry. I want you to know that all is well and I arrived safe and sound at Camp Heaven. Everything around me is more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. The trip was short. I got here just after I closed my eyes and fell asleep. It was as if no time had past at all. I miss you so very much. I was told to tell you not to worry because I would be seeing you soon. Please pass this letter on to all my relatives, friends at home, and at school. I arrived standing before a huge gate. A Beautiful Angel was there waiting to greet me; he had very large wide wings protruding from his shoulders and was wearing a whiter than snow robe with a golden sash around his waste. A halo circled above his head; his whole being glowed as bright as the sun. I was able to see his face; it was unlike any face I had ever seen before...perfect, soft, and gentle. He greeted me with a loving smile. I asked him who he was; he answered with a low and echoy voice: "My name is Gabriel. I am an Archangle and Messenger of God." I could hardly believe what I was seeing: an actually real live Angel! He extended his arms to me; I rushed and fell right into them. He embraced and held me tight, then said: "Welcome home Michael." As he held my body close to his, I felt this profound and undescribable love, peace, and joy flow throughout my entire body unlike anything I had ever experienced before. Mom and Dad, don't feel bad but the love I felt was a thousand times stronger than when anyone else had hugged before. Gabriel spoke to me and said: "Come Michael, all your brothers and sisters are eager to see and greet you. Grab on to my cloak. " We traveled through the air and instantly landed on this wonderful outdoor arena that looked like a King's Palace all shiny and bright. A large group of men, women, and children had gathered. There were all these different kinds of animals just milling around and doggies too. I was so thrilled to see doggies. I saw lots of Black Labs, just like our Smoky Bear. Gabriel put his arm around my shoulder and announced: "Children, this is your new brother Michael; welcome him home!" Everyone cheered and applauded louder than a crowd at a sports event; they all came to greet me and gave me lots of hugs and kisses. I felt like a Super Star! Gabriel then said: "OK, enough kissing and hugging, it's time to celebrate!" I started hearing the sound of beautiful music playing but didn't know where it was coming from. I looked up; descending from the sky was an army of Celestial Angels; they were playing the most beautiful and enchanting music I had ever heard. Each of them was playing different instruments: trumpets, harps, bells, and others instruments I had never heard or seen before. The music permeated the entire palace. Then, all of a sudden, I see this gigantic table and chairs appear in the center of the palace that glistened like diamonds. The table was longer than a football field and was filled with a huge asortment of food and treats. I never saw such a display of food on one table before. Gabriel, seated at the head table; stood, lifted his wine glass high and said: "Children, I hereby propose a toast to welcome the arrival of God's new adopted son, our new brother, and new addition to The Family of God!...Michael! The crowd , lifted their glasses and shouted: "Here! Here!" They all sipped the wine; the Angels started playing this tremendous joyous sounding music; everyone started shouting and repeating: "Welcome Home Michael! Welcome Home! Michael!" Gabriel then said: "Hallelujah! It's time for us to eat, drink, and be merry! Let the celebration and feast begin!" Mom and Dad, it's more wonderful here than anybody could ever imagine or explain. Although I miss you and all my friends very much, please know that I am as happy as I ever could possibly have imagined. Everybody is filled with Joy and Laughter and truly show their love for one another. Gabriel tells me this is to be my New Home and Family. I can stay here forever and never have to worry about being sick, growing old, or have bad things happen to us again. Please be well and take care of yourself. It's just like when you sent me away to those other camps for the summer, except this one is the greastest one of them all and will never end. It's truly Heaven and where I was meant to be, where I belong, and where I will live in love forever and ever! I'll write again soon!

With all my Love,

Your son, Michael

...and everything to do with the love of His love. I have taken a glimpse to His wisdom and seen examples of His power. These are the ones who shake and overwhelm the fragile human heart. But I have also picked some holy drops of His love, beyond His greatest gift, sign and wonder.

These drops are more precious to me than my life in eternity, for I would gladly give not only this short life, but also an eternal one for just a moment in which I would be one with such one drop and thus, one with Him.

There is a presentiment of the following incredible happiness, that cannot be express in the poor human way of language. Not even the greatest form of art wouldn't help. Only the tears, the sweet river of tears can give a small sign of it. 

Oh, yes, Mr. Dawkins and others like him should better discover this before claiming that fear of death turns people into believers. Love of the holy love takes all in the true believer's heart. Consequently, fear of death is out of it and stays out for ever.

May our dear Lord and Father use us to bring His light to all the good and lonely hearts of the people who haven't yet recognized Him!

       Wow! The Lord gave me this word today driving in my truck near Raleigh.The Spirit came on so strong and started talking to me in my heart and mind,i could hardly wait to get home to look up some scriptures and share with you all. I know this has to be for some of you as much as it was for me.

        I was driving into Raleigh this afternoon looking for some supplies for a job when a police car quickly pulled out right behind me and started following me real close.I knew i hadn't done anything and i knew my tags and stuff were current but i tell you,i made two or three turns and he was still right there on me. Well i started getting nervous and fearful and wondering if I'd done something wrong or was everything alright with my truck etc.I'm sure this has happened to some of you.Well after several miles he got in other lane and went on. soon as he did the Lord said to me "Jerry,Do you fear Me like that? Why don't my people fear Me? I am watching and following all the time." It hit me and I had to ask the Lord to forgive me from where i have failed Him.

        If i could get that fearful about what a cop thinks or what i might have done wrong why in the world are we not fearful of what God thinks. He is everything.He is everywhere.He is all knowing.There's nothing we do that can hide from Him.

God see's that bad look we give to someone,That ugly comment we say about someone or to them or that attitude we have.He hears when we listen to things we shouldn't.He see's when we watch or look at things we shouldn't.He knows when we are dishonest or sneaky.He knows and see's everything we hear,speak,see.Everything we do. He is like that policeman following us all the time but He loves us and cares about us and it hurts Him when we don't care enough about Him to do right and be fearful of Him and respectful of Him.

        When I was a boy growing up I had a respect and fear for my earthly dad.I knew if i didn't behave or did something wrong that he would tear my butt up when he found out.I always thought twice about doing anything that would disappoint my dad or bring his belt down on my butt.Yea I tried him a few times but never got away with it. That's the respect and fear that I believe God wants us to have for Him but to a greater degree.

         The Bible is full of verse's talking about the fear of the Lord.

      Deuteronomy 28:58 (If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE Lord THY GOD;)

        Proverbs 1:28,29 (28.Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:29.For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord)

      Proverbs 9:10 (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.)

       Proverbs 14:27 (The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. )

     Proverbs 15:33 (The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honor is humility. )

       Psalms 19:9 (The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. )

      Psalms 111:10 (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. )

     Proverbs 1:7 (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. )

      Proverbs 10:27 (The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. )

    Proverbs 16:6 (By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.)

     Proverbs 23:17 (Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long. )

     Proverbs 8:13 (The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. )


        I know that's a lot of scriptures but there are many more speaking about the fear of the Lord and as you can see having that fear makes us stronger,smarter,wiser,live longer,makes us a better person plus we are commanded to do it so it is a must in our Christian walk.

      How can we as Christians not care about the places we go,the things we listen to,the things we see,the things we say and do without thinking about the Lord and caring about what he thinks or is He proud of us.

         Ask yourself ,is the things I'm doing,places I'm going,things I'm listening to or watching pleasing to my God? Do I fear the Lord and really care what He thinks of me? If you don't my friend you better ask Him in right now and for forgiveness.

      We all are treading on deadly ground if we don't care and do like we want to and not have a fear for the Lord because you know what my friends? He is watching and He is following us all the time.Nothing we can get away with so there's no use in trying Him.There is always a price to pay for disobedience.

        I challenge you as well as my self to get a new fear for the Lord and lets live a life that is pleasing to Him.What better way to show God we love Him than to do His Word and have a respectful fear for Him that all we want to do is be pleasing to Him.

         I love you my friends and i share this with you in love .I know this is what God would have me to say today.

                                                                                                                                                                                   Jerry

       Unplanned Pregnancy

        Though there may be less than favourable circumstances that surround an unplanned pregnancy, the Christian woman or teen has an obligation before God to pause and prayerfully consider the biblical bottom line – God is pro-life – before entertaining thoughts of termination.

        “Thou shalt not murder” Deut. 5:17. Ever-increasingly, the world-view of the bible is that it is archaic, irrelevant, and does not reflect the mood or mindset of the 21st century. The world, in its ungodly perspective, has decided that aborting the unborn is a decision that is ours to make. This was never God's view on the issue. Man’s disobedience and rejection of God’s word is neither new, nor is it shocking to God. It is an attitude that has been around since the beginning. This, however, does not make it any more acceptable to God. What the 21st century world deems irrelevant is quite relevant in God’s everlasting moral order; a moral code that Christians are to embrace if Jesus is really our Lord.

         God is the same yesterday, today and forever. His moral standards are today what they have always been. If God were to change with every new calendar year to accommodate man’s ever-advancing moral corruption, then He would no longer be the Almighty, but rather a weak and indecisive entity. No, we can trust God. We can trust His faithfulness, love, strength and forgiveness, because of the fact that He is God and does not change.

        A 'pro-choice' argument that has remained front and center over the years, and has worked toward empowering women in their decision and also giving justification to it (they think), is the argument - it is my body, therefore it is my right to choose. The obvious, but seldom-used rebuttal is of course - it may be your body, but it is not your life you are taking. The decision to take the life of another is not a decision that is ours to make, and when we do so, it is called 'murder'. The unborn, undeveloped fetus is alive. If it were not, its steady and progressive development into human form would not be possible. If the fetus were not alive the woman would naturally miscarry. The body is a working wonder, wonderfully made. It knows exactly what to do if a living, developing fetus dies within the womb. But for us to wilfully kill this life, is to take the life of another.


        I am sympathetic toward those who find themselves facing an unwanted pregnancy. But the truth is, the ‘breath of life’ is God’s to give and it is His alone to take away. Women acknowledge and honour God - the creator of life, when they protect life in the womb. Every life conceived is life God has granted. If we honour God’s moral code, and do not wound our very soul by the willful destruction of our own flesh and blood, life will be fuller and better. No matter how difficult the emotional challenges are surrounding the pregnancy, we must ask ourselves – What will the rejection of God’s moral law cost me in the end?

        May I encourage you to carefully consider God and also the precious life you carry before making a critical decision that will immensely impact the rest of your life.

        God is your strength.

<p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font size="3">I don&#39;t think that there can be greater heartache than knowing Jesus and yet still be a slave to sin. It&#39;s common knowledge that there are many churchgoers secretly addicted to pornography, alcohol, drugs and other sins. They don&#39;t want to be that way but don&#39;t know how to overcome their slavery to unrighteousness and their hearts ache because of the darkness that is hidden within them. They feel great shame but put on happy faces. Only they, and God, know the awful shame that is deep within their souls.

So, if you are battling with the likes of pornography, alcohol or drugs, then you too can be freed and enter into the wonderful peace of God which comes when inner darkness is replaced with light.

Many people say that we are only human and can&#39;t be free from slavery to sin despite the fact that Jesus says we can be. I once heard the following: "We have a body which gets hungry so we eat, a body which gets thirsty so we drink and a sinful nature so we will always sin." This is a terrible lie which leaves many souls burdened with the guilt of their sin. Jesus clearly says that He can free us. In </span></span></font></font><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><span style="font-weight: normal">Rom. 7:24-25, Paul openly admitted to the wickedness of his flesh when he said, </span></font></font><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><i><span style="font-weight: normal">"What a wretched man I am!"</span></i></font></font><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><span style="font-style: normal"><span style="font-weight: normal"> BUT he went on to say, </span></span></font></font><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><i><span style="font-weight: normal">"Who will </span></i></font></font><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><i><u><span style="font-weight: normal">rescue me</span></u></i></font></font><font color="#000000"><font size="3"><i><span style="font-weight: normal"> from this body of death?

God has given us the ability and responsibility to live a holy life. </span></span></font></font></p>

You can be sure that God loves you as much as He loves any other person and will strengthen you to overcome when you are truly repentant. If your repentance is half-hearted then God will not deliver you because He sees that you love your sin more than His righteousness.

<p>It is time for the children of God to be partakeers of his divine nature.&#160; When Adam sinned he disconnected from God and connected to Satan.&#160; He exchanged his nature of being righteous in exchange for the nature of sin.&#160; And everyone born after him was born with that sin nature.&#160; But, as soon as Adam sinned God had a plan to get things back.&#160; Just as you were born in sin God came up with a plan for man to be born again.&#160; In your sin nature you are connected to Satan and the things of that nature- the curse, sin, sickness, depression, poverty, fear.&#160; In your righteous nature you are connected to God and all the things of that nature- the blessing, health, prosperity, peace, faith.&#160; So as a born again christian you have a right to the life of Christ Jesus.&#160; Because of what Jesus did on the cross you can exchange the devils nature for the nature of God.&#160; Jesus said he came for you to have life and have it more abundantly.</p>

<p>Jesus said, "I am the vine, ye are the branches."&#160; You don&#39;t have a healthy, prosperous vine and poor, sick branches.&#160; In the sin nature you are do the wages of sin, death (Romans 6:23).&#160; But, in your righteous nature you are do the wages of righteousness, life (Romans 5:17).&#160; All the things of Adams nature got passed down so likewise all the things of Jesus are passed down to those with that nature(those that are in Christ).&#160; So his peace, faith, joy, health, wisdom are passed down when you are connected(the vine and branches).&#160; Jesus came to bring man God&#39;s way of life. And one of the biggest jobs is renewing you mind to the things of God.&#160; For by the renewing of your mind you are transformed from the things of the world into the things of God (Romans 12:2).</p>

<p>Do you know you have a right to be healed, delivered, prosperous, blessed.&#160; That&#39;s right I said you have a right to those things because the blood of Jesus paid for them.&#160; And what you have a right to you are free to receive.&#160; For example, you take a friend out to eat and you decide to pay for the buffet and they have all kinds of food laid out.&#160; And you both come back to the table and all they have is one piece of food, what&#39;s the first thing you say?&#160; That&#39;s all you want.&#160; Why, because you want them to partake of all that&#39;s laid out for them.&#160; As a matter of fact the more they take the better you feel.&#160; So imagine how Jesus feel, he died for you to be healed and you put up with sickness, he died for you to be prosperous and you put with lack, he died for you to be free and you keep putting up with that bondage.&#160; Healing, deliverance, prosperity, and blessing are all on the buffet, receive.&#160; So, how do you receive from God&#39;s buffet first you have to believe God&#39;s word.&#160; Second you have to get your mouth involved "A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth" (Proverbs 13:2).&#160; So, you are going to have to start speaking "By whose stripes I am healed" (2Peter 2:24), "My God shall supply all my need according to his riches in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19), "Christ hath redeemed me from the curse of the law" (Galatians 3:13).&#160; That&#39;s why the word says, "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so" (Psalm 107:2).&#160; God invites you to taste and see that He is good (Psalm 34:8).&#160; What did you do to be a sinner, nothing.&#160; What do you do to be righteous, nothing, but receive Jesus as your Lord and saviour.&#160; Because it&#39;s all about what Jesus did.&#160; How do you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you believe God raised Jesus from the dead and confess him as your Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:9,10).&#160; Come and take your first taste and see that God is good.</p>

<p>Prayer:&#160; Dear Father I believe Jesus died for my sins on the cross and that you raised him from the dead and I confess now that Jesus is my Lord and Saviour.&#160; Amen</p>

<p><strong>Explanation of the third chapter of Isaiah. The situation of an organized community</strong><strong>.</strong></p>

<p>“ALSO in this following chapter the prophecy is for now and for the coming times of which I have spoken.</p>

<p>[2] The first verse of the prophet has a deep meaning and goes like this: ‘<em>Look, the Lord, Lord Zebaoth will take away out of Jerusalem all kinds of provisions, and also out of the whole of Judah the total provision of bread and the whole provision of water</em>’. (Isaiah 3:1).</p>

<p>[3] Here, by <strong><em>Jerusalem</em></strong> must be understood the present-day Jewry, just as it is now and already has been for a long time. By <strong><em>Judah</em></strong> must be understood the future generations that then, by accepting My teaching, will be counted to the tribe of Judah. <strong>Because of their laziness they will undergo the same fate in a much greater measure as now the Jews in a smaller measure</strong>.</p>

<p>[4] By the <strong><em>taking away of the provision of bread</em></strong> you must understand the taking away of love and mercy, and by the <strong><em>taking away of the provision of water</em></strong>, the taking away of the true wisdom out of God. And the result thereof will be that all of them will come on a wrong track, and their soul will be in darkness, and nobody will be able to give counsel to another. And even if somebody would give counsel to another, then the one who needed counsel and light will still not trust him and say: ‘What are you talking to me about the light while you yourself are in the same darkness as I am.’ The fact that the people will then by their own fault – because of their laziness – become totally</p>

<p>without help, is accurately described by the prophet with the following words:</p>

<p>[5] ‘<em>Thus will be taken away the strong ones and warriors, judges, prophets, fortunetellers and elders </em>(Isaiah 3:2), <em>counselors and wise workers, and eloquent orators, and headmen over 50, and also honest people</em> (3:3).’</p>

<p>[6] I am mentioning here on purpose the headmen and the honest people as last instead of in the beginning of the third verse, and I have My reason for this. Listen now to the explanation.</p>

<p>[7] Who are the strong ones and the warriors? These are such people like once David was, full of faith and trust in Me, and the warriors are those people who consent to be totally inspired by faith and trust in the One, to always conquer all the enemies of what is good and true from God – even if they are so many.</p>

<p>[8] When there will be a complete lack of living water out of the Heavens, and all flesh, together with its soul, are in the thickest of darkness, who will then deal with the people as a true and righteous judge? Who will have the gift of prophecy? And even if someone still possesses it for himself, who will then, without inner understanding believe that it is true? Who will be able to prophesy for the blind and deaf? And who will be chosen by dark mankind as a true elder because of his outstanding wisdom in order to make him their shepherd? Now, understand this well.</p>

<p>[9] <strong>The one from whom – spiritually speaking – has been taken away bread and water, has lost by that everything, because the one who has been punished and chastised by God with spiritual blindness, has been punished and chastised the most severely</strong>. &#160;Because by that he has lost everything, and he is completely in despair and helpless. This is then also the ultimate means by which <strong>the laziness of the people that took a too great dominion, and all their vices can be fought against in the best way</strong>.</p>

<p>[10] The fact that the people will be in the greatest misery by the taking away of the spiritual bread and water, and by that, the things that still will be taken away from them, the prophet explains further in the third verse, where he explicitly says: ‘<em>By that, the people will have to miss the <strong>counselors</strong></em><strong>’</strong> or those who give counsel, ‘<em>and <strong>wise workers</strong></em>’ in all branches of human necessities, thus also intelligent speakers, who otherwise would have accomplished a lot of good with their wisdom.</p>

<p>[11] However, the worst of all that, is the taking away of the, say, <strong><em>50 headmen</em></strong> which is taking place at the same time. Who are the 50 and what has the figure 50 to do with it? This we will perceive right away.</p>

<p>[12] If we imagine a big and completely organized community of people, then since ancient times it has – if it wants to be well taken care of in everything – in total <strong>50 main regions where it has to provide in their necessities of life. Whatever is above that, stands already for pride, and everything that is less stands for weakness, need and poverty</strong>. However, in order to provide efficiently and to take care of each separate branch of these life necessities there must also be a clever captain as foreman and leader in charge, who from A to Z must be well acquainted with everything that is necessary in the whole system. If such a one is not present and someone incompetent stands in his place, then the whole branch of life necessities will soon carry bad or even no more fruits at all for the community.</p>

<p>[13] <strong>How then will a big community be able to stand if by its laziness and negligence finally has lost all of the 50 headmen? </strong>I tell you: <strong>in the same manner as the community of Jews nowadays, where only certain thieves and robbers are still possessing something and who fatten and enrich themselves at the expense of the poor, but where thousands are helplessly pining away in the deepest of poverty</strong>. <strong>Because where is the wise captain who would take care of them and who would give them in one way or another a certain job and bread?</strong> Look, in a lot of areas a head is missing, and so also all the other things are not present. <strong>There are still certain headmen to direct different areas, but this they are not doing for the people but for oneself, and therefore they are only thieves and robbers and no real headmen</strong> like at the time of My judges.</p>

<p>[14] Now you have seen how the outer and inner well being of the people of a big community depends on the head leaders in the different areas of life necessities. But on who then depends in the first place the right organization of the named head leaders in a big community of people, in a country that is governed by a prince or king? Look, it only depends on a wise king.</p>

<p>[15] But then, what does our prophet say? What will the Lord do further on with the lazy, god-forsaken communities?</p>

<p>[16] Listen, his words are as follows: ‘<em>I, says the Lord, will give them young men to be their princes, and silly men will rule over them</em>. (Isaiah 3:4). And <strong>among the people one will suck out the other. Everyone, even his neighbor, and the young one will exalt himself above the elder and a worthless, dishonest man above an honest one</strong>.’ (Isaiah 3:5).</p>

<p>[17] The words of the prophet are here of itself so clear and plain that they do not need another explanation. I can only show you the great and clear visible very bad results, although these also can</p>

<p>easily be discovered by itself. <strong>Once all life-conditions will come into the greatest disorder by such confusion, and when, because of the need, all the people of the community will become very discontented, then also will arise one merciless rebellion after another. The people will awaken and stand up, and are chasing away the princes and selfish headmen, or even strangle them</strong>. And this is what is meant when one says: ‘<strong><em>One nation wars against another’</em></strong>.</p>

<p>[18] <strong>Thanks to his lazy nature, man permits any pressure as long as he, in his blindness, can still fill his stomach, no matter with what kind of meager food, but once also this is ceasing and he is facing only starvation, then he wakes up and turns into a starved enraged hyena. And it must come to that point, so that mankind will wake up</strong>.” (The Great Gospel of John Book 17, chap. 94)</p>

<p>Dear Mom &amp; Dad,</p>

<p>This is the first chance I had to write to you. I&#39;m sorry if I made you worry. I want you to know that all is well and I arrived safe and sound at Camp Heaven. Everything around me is more beautiful than I could ever have imagined. The trip was short. I got here just after I closed my eyes and fell asleep. It was as if no time had past at all. I miss you so very much. I was told to tell you it wasn&#39;t goodbye because I would be seeing you soon. Please mention this letter to all my relatives, friends at home, and at school. I arrived standing before a huge gate. A Beautiful Angel was there waiting to greet me; he had very large wide wings protruding from his shoulders and was wearing a whiter than snow robe with a golden sash around his waste. A halo circled above his head; his whole being glowed as bright as the sun. I was able to see his face; it was unlike any face I had ever seen before...perfect, soft, and gentle. He greeted me with a loving smile. I asked him who he was; he answered with a low echoy voice: "My name is Gabriel. I am an Archangel and Messenger of God." I could hardly believe what I was seeing: a real live Angel! He extended his arms to me; I rushed and fell right into them. He embraced and held me tight, then said: "Welcome home Michael." While in his arms I was overcome with a profound love, peace, and joy which encompassed my whole body unlike anything I had ever experienced before. Mom and Dad, don&#39;t feel bad but the love I felt was a thousand times stronger than anything I ever experienced before. He then said: "Come Michael, all your brothers and sisters are eager to see and greet you. Grab on to my cloak." We traveled through the air for a short while and landed on this huge outdoor arena that looked like a King&#39;s Palace all shiny and bright. A large group of men, women, and children had gathered. There were all kinds of animals milling around...doggies too. I was thrilled to see doggies. I saw lots of Black Labs, just like our Smoky Bear. Gabriel put his arm around my shoulder and announced: "Children, this is your new brother Michael; welcome him home!" Everyone cheered and applauded louder than a crowd at a sports stadium; they all came to greet me and gave me lots of hugs and kisses. I felt like a Super Star! Gabriel then said: "OK, enough kissing and hugging, it&#39;s time to celebrate!" I started hearing the sound of music playing but didn&#39;t know where it was coming from. I looked up; descending from the sky was an army of Celestial Angels playing the most beautiful and enchanting music I had ever heard. Each of them had different instruments: trumpets, harps, bells, and others instruments I had never heard or seen before. The music permeated the entire palace. Then, all of a sudden, I see this gigantic table and chairs appear in the center of the palace that glistened like diamonds. The table was longer than a football field and was filled with a huge assortment of food and treats. I never saw such a display of food on one table before. Gabriel, seated at the head table stood, lifted his wine glass high and said: "Children, I hereby propose a toast to welcome the arrival of God&#39;s new adopted son, our new brother, and new addition to The Family of God, Michael! The crowd lifted their glasses and shouted: "Here! Here!" and sipped the wine. The Angels started playing a tremendous joyous sounding song. Everyone started shouting and repeating: "Welcome Home Michael! Welcome Home! Michael!" Gabriel then said: "Hallelujah! It&#39;s time to eat, drink, and be merry! Let the celebration and feast begin!" Mom and Dad, it&#39;s more wonderful here than words can express! Although I miss you, Dad, and all my friends very much, please know that I am as happy as I ever could possibly have imagined. It&#39;s like an everlasting party: Everyone dancing, laughing, filled with joy, and truly showing their love and concern toward one another. Gabriel told me this is to be my New Home and Family. I can stay here forever and never have to worry again about getting sick, growing old, or have bad things happen. Please be well. Take care of yourself and above all don&#39;t worry. It&#39;s just like when you sent me away to those other camps for the summer, except this camp is the greastest one of them all and I won&#39;t ever have to leave. I am in Paradise and here is where I was meant to be, where I belong, and where I will live in love forever and ever! Well, I gotta go now; they&#39;re calling my name to join in on another exciting outdoor game. I&#39;ll try to write again soon but it&#39;s hard to stop from all the fun I&#39;m having. I love you both so very much!</p>

<p>23 October 1872</p>

<p>‘Well, on this topic, or what “human dignity” really means, or should mean, there prevail as many viewpoints as there are cultured or educated human beings. For primitive peoples and coarse, depraved persons have certainly no idea what the term “human” is meant to convey, and how to make themselves worthy of it.</p>

<p>Only where man is ethically, morally brought up and educated, can one expect to find a notion about the true dignity of man, which, however, must again vary in keeping with his education, his station in&#160;life.</p>

<p>However, all these current and prevailing ideas about the concept&#160;of “human dignity” are not the reason why I want to explain this word and tell you what human dignity actually consists in. I only want to help you to link My very teaching with practical life, so that you may become worthy, as a being placed between two worlds, of corresponding in spirit as well as in soul to the great creational thoughts of your heavenly Father. For although you have received much from Me, you too do not have as yet the right idea of what “human dignity” actually means, since you see it only too well in others how they, while claiming this rifle for themselves, seek to twist and expound it in keeping with their desires and passions so as to be worthy human beings after their own desires, each one in his fashion!</p>

<p>In order to better understand human dignity and to better grasp the following, let us again begin with the concept of the word, tracing it back to the root of its origin, and then determine its actual concept and value, how it should be used by you and how I envisage it.</p>

<p>(Note by translator: In the following text we are dealing with a play upon words which is applicable only to the German language but makes little or no sense in English. Therefore, the terms under consideration are given in both English and German. In addition to the term “dignity”, “worth”, being of Germanic origin, is used, as it facilitates comprehension somewhat.)</p>

<p>Look, the word “Würde” (dignity, worth) is derived from “Werden” (becoming), and the word “Werden” is actually a word out of the creational thought which, as the basis of My Being, was given to the entire visible world. For without the “Werden” (becoming) there would be neither a sun nor a planet, neither a great material nor a great spirit-realm, since I animated the whole of infinity solely with the word: “Es werde!” (Let there be!) for the beatitude of the created beings, and for the beatitude of My own self, which is love personified. This expression “loves, however, should mean only doing and working everything for others, and finding one’s own bliss, one’s own happiness in the understanding and perfecting of others.</p>

<p>With the word “Es werde!” (Let there be!) were also given the law and the road for every spirit or soul product, or the degree of perfection for which it was destined, where of course the incarnated spirits imprisoned in the material world had to take a different road from that of the free spirit-hosts of My infinite spirit-world in their self-awareness.</p>

<p>Well, with the “werde” (let there be) there of course also arose the question as to whether the released spirits in particular, who were left to their own devices, had really become what they were meant to be, in other words, whether they knew what My goal with them was.</p>

<p>Through the word “wurde” (became) a state began which, if it corresponded to My intent, was equal to the title “würde” (dignity) or “würdig” (worthy), just as you in the world bestow on the one a “würde” (dignity, office, title) or call him “würdig” (worthy), who has deserved this office or the predicate “würdig” (worthy) owing to his attributes as a spiritual man (that means one who conforms to the idea of his office).</p>

<p>Hence, what you designate as “würde” (dignity, office, title) really expresses that this person, who holds an office or deserves to be called würdig” (worthy), possesses all those qualities which ennoble man as a spiritual being and which should mark him as something better than it was possible for his fellowman to attain.</p>

<p>This idea of dignity (würde), which you generally hold, I too have concerning the beings created by Me, only applied with a different yardstick.</p>

<p>When I created the first man on your earth, I installed him in the manner you invest a higher official with a title, by giving him the power to rule over much and to be superior to any other created being on earth. By virtue of his spiritual attributes as a descendant of Mine, I invested him with the full authority to become what I actually wanted to make him, namely, “lord of the earth”. In this way, he was to use his faculties for his own good and for the advantage of the whole world around him.</p>

<p>So that he might understand his own dignity in the sense I want the same understood, I set him free, let him use all the propensities laid into him, for either good or evil. I thereby wanted to make him realize that the dignity bestowed on him by Me consists solely in that he, as a free, independently acting being, not as a machine, knows how to regulate his character qualities, propensities and desires, and that he can only through the controlling of his passions attain spiritual dignity. All the means to attain it and become a worthy intermediate member between the bound and the totally free spirit-world were given him by&#160;Me.</p>

<p>I called to him the “werde” (become), and he became, what? You can see that now everywhere; alas, not that for which I have called him, for instead of a free lord he became a slave to his passions, thus contrary to his vocation disgracing and misusing himself and the nature surrounding him. Hence all the calamities which now spiritually and materially pursue man with evils and suffering of every kind. For, contrary to his high destiny, instead of making himself worthy of Me, he has left the right road, has become “unwürdig” (unworthy) to be called a “man”, into whom I once instilled My spiritual breath wanting to mark him a child of My great spirit-realm. This great spirit-realm he now can only reach on great detours, battling with all kinds of adversities and suffering.</p>

<p>Since mankind with their pretended science and scholarship have arrived at a point where they interpret this word “dignity of man” at their own convenience, after egotism, as the counter-pole of My love and of love generally, has become the main hobby of the presently living people, through this insane behavior the measure of errors on your part and like­wise the measure of My patience are nearing their end. And so this word is again given you so as to save many a man from general decline, lest he completely lose his dignity, his sole share in the spiritual world.</p>

<p>It is true, this one, and all My words which so far I have given you through My scribes, are only accessible to few; but, patience! The calamities of human life will soon lead one or the other into your camp, so that finally he, having tried everything in vain, will call on you entreating you with the words:</p>

<p>“Friends and brothers! Have you no comfort, no refreshment for my sick soul? I feel it, I have lost the dignity of man, have trampled upon it and now that I demand comfort and peace in the face of all the bogeys that used to be praised to me as wisdom, as religious dogmas, they all prove to be faulty, not lasting. The whole dream of a rational, logical sham-knowledge evaporates like a nebulous form. Give me back the dignity of the spiritual man, so that I may feel like a true man,&#160;like the spiritual being who, once gone forth from the hand of a loving Creator, now wants to return to Him, having again become worthy of Him!”</p>

<p>Then, My children, it is the words which I am giving to you among the presently living, which bring refreshment and comfort to the thirsty one, forcing him to call out with his face turned heavenward: “What am I, o Lord, for You to remember me?”</p>

<p>It is this purpose, namely, to again show you clearly and brightly “the dignity of man”, so that the seeker, the sinner, the doubter, may realize how far he has distanced himself from it and where he has to look for the means by which to regain the lost Paradise.</p>

<p>Do understand this: When Adam had acted contrary to My command, he lost his Paradise, that means he lost the awareness of his spiritual dignity. This very loss plunged his descendants to this day into the chaos of erroneous ideas, notions, concepts about life and about the world, which are merely the eternal striving to regain a spiritual dignity which raises man far above all matter, all sensuality. It lets him look far beyond the ruins of devastation and disaster with hope to another world where all, these calamities, which after all concern only the physical welfare of man, completely disappear; where it is clearly and simply understood that they were only a means to an end, namely, to again elevate man, who was submerged in matter, to the spiritual cosmopolitan I had once created him to be, and what he must again become no matter how many capers he may cut. It is only a different time, but the final goal is the same. What has gone forth from Me must again return to Me, for it was Mine and must again become so.</p>

<p>Now that I have shown you with few words what “dignity” is, how it was given you by Me and how it was misused by you human beings, I must also prove and strictly and conclusively demonstrate to you what, according to My idea, human dignity really means, so that you too may get a clear concept of that which I gave you and which I can demand back from you so that you may conform to My wishes.</p>

<p>Now look, My children! Human dignity is really nothing else but “the constant acting, thinking and willing in accordance with My laws of love!”</p>

<p>I, love personified, have created you out of love, and so you, the created, must strive to emulate this Creator, who laid the spark of love into you as much as it is within your power.</p>

<p>This is the actual fundamental meaning of love, of the dignity of man, who, curbing his passions of anger, hatred or revenge, does, suffers and feels everything only out of love, only for others.</p>

<p>Thus the material, physical man with his human needs is hallowed, spiritualized through the sublime warmth of a divine love, more worthy of his actual descent and more capable of understanding his Creator and of drawing near Him.</p>

<p>Therefore, man’s dignity consists only in the subjugation of anything ignoble, be it in thoughts, word or deed! In this way alone man is superior to the animal, which certainly has many qualities in common with man, namely, by using these same qualities for more noble purposes, by sublimating also the coarsest sensual desire, giving it a more noble air, higher motives. This ennobles man and gives him back his innate dignity whereby he becomes a citizen of a spirit-realm which one day will be his permanent abode.</p>

<p>Man is not ennobled by the conventional adherence to social rules and state laws. Not at all! Man is ennobled by his own conscience, when he is aware of having done everything out of the most noble, most exalted motives, of having done everything out of love for his Creator and love for his fellow created beings.</p>

<p>Not the deed determines the worth, but the “Why”, why an action was performed! To be sure, man sees the action, but the motive is known only to two, to Me and the one acting, in which case I represent his approving or disapproving conscience.</p>

<p>What are “pangs of conscience” if not the uneasiness to have acted contrary to one’s spiritual dignity! Therefore, whenever you do something, whenever thoughts assail you, pay heed to them lest they debase you. For everyone carries within him his book of life, and at the end of his earthly career he will be shown in a picture the kind of physiognomy his spiritual man will assume on his demise. And so the reflection of the life as it was lived on earth will be the expression of the soul-garment, where the sum total of all the thoughts, wishes and inordinate desires will reveal the spiritual man to the other spirits, not according to his physical, but his spiritual form.</p>

<p>It goes without saying that this form of the most noble human image must have millions of gradations, even ending in caricature. Everyone stamps his own face according to the way he lived; the more in accordance with his dignity, the purer the outer soul-forms expressing the inner Spiritual! And it is true that to some people, though not to all, it is quite obvious what kind of a soul is hidden in one or the other body although so much deception is still possible in the human body. However, in the other world, this is no longer the case. This is why I am sending you these words and calling to you:</p>

<p>Do live worthy of yourselves! Make no pretences and show yourselves also to others as true human beings, like the first one I created; people who carry the spark of the immortal spirit within them and who, through all the earlier events, such as My incarnation, were destined and created for such great purposes!</p>

<p>Do not revile your dignity, be strict with your world of thought; it is the first seducer that easily leads you across the bridge of propriety, from the noble to the base.</p>

<p>Human dignity is your only sanctum; through it, you achieve everything, without it, you sink back to the world of animals, become, like animals, material beings who are not worthy of even a divine spark, and actually sink below the animal. For whenever the animal commits actions that to your eyes look cruel and cunning, it cannot judge them, they are part of its nature. But man sinks below the animal because he has the faculty of judging, considers his actions and thoughts carefully and is well aware of the fact that he ought to act otherwise, but still acts contrarily because it flatters his sensual, and not his divine, nature.</p>

<p>Man’s dignity is the shrine which should be kept hallowed, and in this purity there lie quietness and solace in adversity of any kind; for this sanctum leads to the trust in a guiding Father-hand which, though seemingly punishing, only seeks to reform out of love.</p>

<p>This human dignity turns people into angels, just as its loss transforms them into devils in human form.</p>

<p>If this so often misunderstood “dignity” were not the true fundamental pillar and principle behind all thoughts and actions, I would not have explained to you in detail that you should watch yourselves a little more strictly, thereby recognizing hourly and daily how often you sin against this very same dignity in thoughts, words and actions.</p>

<p>The impure thoughts go past the contemporaries unnoticed and unheard, however, they adhere to your psychic man. There others will one day read, full of horror, how many a dignitary of your world no longer possessed a spark of the human dignity I gave him, as My image, on his life’s journey.</p>

<p>Therefore, let these notables settle their matter individually; they too will be faced with situations, if not in this, then certainly in the other world, where with dread and horror beings will flee each other who were here attached to each other in friendship.</p>

<p>The disappointment will come, though late, still too soon for the unworthy. Therefore, keep your world of thought pure! There, let your human dignity shine as a pure flame of love, tolerance and reverence, and you will, though misunderstood by your fellowman, enjoy already here on earth the heaven which is here only transient, but which will there be permanently within and around you.</p>

<p>You see, My children, if I did not know what is still in store for you during your earthly journey, I would not enjoin this human dignity on you so much. But a good physician when observing symptoms of disease knows how to arrange prophylactic means so that, if a disease does occur, it can be prevented.</p>

<p>This applies also to Me. Soon, calamity upon calamity will occur. The process of fermentation and separation must move towards an end. The spiritual air of your earth globe, as so often the material atmosphere, is filled with sultry vapors. The discharge must follow, and this is why I advise you:</p>

<p>Flee to Me! Do not violate your human dignity. Only in this way can you brave all storms. For this spiritual dignity elevates you above ordinary life, lets you see all the misfortunes however great in a different light, and fills your heart with trust and confidence in your Father in heaven, who now, because the majority of mankind long ago has lost its dignity, must allow such means so as to achieve through misery and want what was unachievable through kindness.</p>

<p>The dignity of man, or the spiritual awareness: “I am not of this world, but of another, better and eternal world,” elevates man, though he has to suffer under the general adversities, far above this earthly world and he is like one standing on a high mountain, who looks with equanimity at the hustle and bustle beneath him in the enjoyment of a greater, wider and more beautiful view when often the thought may arise in him:</p>

<p>“Oh, why are these people so blind! Down there, in the mire of their lowest passions, they forget for the sake of the worldly things what is essential, what they should really be. Oh, if they had the courage, if they dared to come up here to me, how foolish they would find all that which now appears to them so important, so absolutely essential. How they would shudder at the thought that everything they believe to have attained they have bought with the loss of their only possession, the loss of their spiritual dignity as man!”</p>

<p>“This is how many a person will think who, having grappled with the mire and dirt of the basest passions, has regained his dignity. This is how you too shall think, whom I have been showering for a considerable time with words of grace and light so that you, conscious of your human dignity, may enjoy the exalted position in which I have placed you and, always remembering your own dignity, endeavor to become yourselves worthy of being that which I have so often called you, namely, My dear children!</p>

<p>This fatherly call is only for those who are able to retain their human dignity; for by retaining it, they also attain more and more the dignity to become My children, what I wanted the first man to become when he was created, but unfortunately he failed to become!</p>

<p>So be strict, “watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation”, as I once called to My disciples. At that time I knew why, and now I am telling you again: Watch and pray that you do not ever debase yourselves. And always remain faithful to that which by so many words from Me you could easily fathom, namely, that only through nobility of the soul can human dignity be attained, consolidated and retained. Without it, all reading and praying is of no benefit! The inner man must be in My likeness, then his outer image will one day correspond to his spiritual surroundings in the beyond. And so endeavor to enter the other world endowed with a spiritual-psychic countenance. It is better to prepare for this already here, instead of trying to attain it only there. Here, what is required is “the dignity of man”, there, “the dignity of spirit” is another level for which human dignity serves as basis and which is unattainable without it.</p>

<p>I prepare you to achieve within a short earthly life that which is there by far more difficult to attain. Therefore, heed My words, they come from your Father, who wants to make you worthy of Him. However, you cannot achieve this unless you have become worthy of yourselves.</p>

<p>This for you and all who come and are thirsty and hungry to act accordingly, who try to regain with you that which, consciously or unconsciously, they have often thoughtlessly lost, namely, their own dignity, as the sole anchor in life, in the midst of conflict and privation of every kind, as anchor of trust, hope and love! Amen.</p>

<p><strong>"None of you have as yet understood why I uncover and explain to you all the depths of My creation, all the innermost aspects of My divine self. Behold, My dear ones, the reason for all this is, to instill into you the very thing lacking in all of you, meaning, the trust in Me. For when together with Me you traverse the immeasurable spaces of My infinity, when I open up to you My spiritual heavens, giving you an inkling of what is there being kept and prepared for you; when I reveal to you My own self, which is nothing but love and in return wants only love; when I prove to you down to the smallest atoms that I, the Creator and Father, sustain everything with the same love, I only want to prove to you that a Being possessed of this might and strength, as which I am showing Myself to you, should surely be worthy of trust and that, compared to My omniscience and omnipotence, all your activity and behavior must be considered as below the level of Zero. &#160; </strong></p>

<p>Ponder these few words; they are very important, like everything flowing from My mouth. Enter deeply into the meaning of that which all of you were given, and you will not only find consolation and peace but, and this is the main thing, you will more and more realize your own standpoint and then, consolidating what is unstable, be able to draw closer to Me.</p>

<p>Not a word I send you through My servant was, and still is, without its own purpose. Also these three words I was just now bringing before the eyes of My scribe because right now it is beginning to be somewhat unstable in your company. There is no true spiritual life present. Many of you are again living only for their businesses and pet interest, almost wholly forgetting Me and My teaching and only remembering it when by chance one or the other has made a speech to that effect.</p>

<p><strong>Be watchful and pray, lest you fall into temptation</strong>. Do not make fun of My grace! I do not, as some believe, bestow it on those who only concern themselves with Me and My teaching when they have nothing else to do. They should take care, for they may be struck by lightning out of a blue sky and be forced to realize that they had considered as a matter of secondary importance that which really should be their main concern.</p>

<p>Whosoever knows nothing of My teaching and sins against it, is not so culpable. However, if someone has read My teaching and, half believing, shows no true trust in its activation and no confidence in the attainment of the actual purpose, I shall be forced to wake him up through a direct jolt lest he drop off to the sleep of worldly things, thereby forgetting My spiritual school. Today I still admonish; who, apart from Me, knows what I shall do tomorrow? The piece of ground on which you live and peacefully walk about enjoying your life, is hollow under your feet. This thin shell covers terrible chasms and you with firm faith and trust look up to Me with great confidence and hope that I shall not let this thin shell give way, thereby letting all of you taste death unawares. Calmly you lie down above these chasms with the firm trust and confidence of again rising the next day hale and strengthened while perhaps under your feet to you incomprehensible baffles of the elements are taking place. Why do you have such trust in this case and not in spiritual matters? You see, because you believe I shall not do it! And why shall I not do it? Because you put your trust in a loving Father, who will not without reason punish His children with destruction. What, then, is your confidence? It is that, what you hope for, namely, the constant granting of My grace to you, may not waver.</p>

<p>Now, since in this respect you put such firm faith, trust and confidence in Me, do allow also Me to demand of you, if not at this rate of divine forbearance, then with human indulgence, to have also in spiritual matters a firmer faith, greater trust and greater confidence; and to understand that all I have already bestowed on you happened only for your benefit and by no means for My entertainment, but only in order to confer on you the honor of being able to become My children.</p>

<p><strong>You demand of Me unlimited grace, and I demand of you unlimited love. With the exchange of these two conditions it is only you who gain, since I want to accord you a might that shall make you lords of all that was created</strong>!</p>

<p>Since I promise you such great graces, I am also allowed to wake up those on the road to Me, should they fall asleep while walking, through gentle nudges as I am now doing to you. Then you will realize that one must not walk My paths with one’s eyes closed, but with open eyes and ears so as not to miss the right way and go astray.</p>

<p>So again, let all of you consider what I am giving you here. Be watchful and pray, lest you fall into temptation! Let this be your device towards a steady growth in firm faith, trust and confidence! Amen." (Secrets of life, chap. 12)</p>
