Lorber's Statements about the Antichrist. From the New Revelation
(Text excerpted from The Advent of Christ)
"First of all, I make it
comprehensible to you that in My Teachings and Words lie considerably more
salvation and blessings, if lived accordingly, than if you could interpret
all the vials of wrath in the prophecies of John.
This much I can tell you: The
earth, with its entire humanity, is engaged in the process of separation,
and that everything which is going to happen soon is, indeed, written in
those prophecies, but it will not be fulfilled in the sense in which you
would interpret it. To "shorten the days" means - in view of the spreading
of My Word -to speed up the cleansing of the earth of its corruptible
elements, which has already been taking place for some time.
You also keep reading of the"
Antichrist" ; most people imagine this to be a personality. If they looked
upon the world with an attentive eye, they would find many "anti-Christians",
because there are only very few actual successors of Christ or My Teachings,
and even these are still far from being what they really should be.
The actual" Antichrist" is the
generally prevailing obsession for entirely different things than are
preached by My Teachings. It is the prevailing inclination of so many people
where only the head is active and the heart is being condemned to silence.
Here you must accept the "head" or the calculating intellect (as the
spiritual principle) as the" Antichrist" who has already for a long time
been actively working his wiles on earth, endeavouring to explain to
mankind, by seductive arguments, that only what the intellect can grasp and
elucidate is true.
what the heart feels or suspects is nothing but the fleeting haze of an
excited imagination! That is why the doctrine of the materialists is the
last stage of rationalistic wisdom, and therefore, the addiction to pleasure
and the means by which to satisfy it,
and the contempt for all which is noble, good and sublime. Thusly,
"knowledge and no faith"!
And still man forgets what I once
said: ' Your knowledge is but fragmented!'
"All these pictures in the Apocalypse of John are spiritual figures. They are
prevailing epidemic mental disorders which drive and dominate people. In
order to be able to decode these revelations, a person must think on a much
higher level than he is capable of at this stage. He must see and
understand, from My standpoint, the spiritual inner world of the souls
enveloped in a physical body on earth. He must recognize how the spiritual
trend changes, how I then make use of it for My Own purposes and how,
instead of what mankind would like to achieve, only My Great Goal can be
strived for! If he is capable of rising to this point of view, then he will
also understand what it means: "They killed the prophets and left their dead
bodies lying in the street for three and one-half days." This signifies:
When mankind heard the teachings of My Chosen Ones, they refused to accept
them, mocked My scribes and servants, or regarded them as non-existent, as
dead. They rejected My Teachings or' left them lying on the open street' ,
not believing in them, but also not completely discarding them either. Until
after a short time (figuratively three and one-half days) truth triumphed
again, the one believed dead became alive once more and returned to whence
he had come, i.e. he ascended to Me. Whosoever comprehends the meaning of
these words, that is, what they signify spiritually, will also easily find
out the meaning of "the city of Babylon" or "the place of intellectual
Whosoever throws himself into My
Arms can calmly watch the coming events. He knows that it is all for the
benefit of the straying children. Once he will realize from My Words that
the world cannot exist in this way -since I did not create it for this
purpose -he will also understand that I have to return, in order to save
whatever can still be saved! Wherefore he, too, shall strive only for no
other goal, than to prepare himself so as to be worthy of and be counted as
one of "My Children", and not be swept away from the earth and annihilated
with the rest of the debris!"
