Jakob Lorber was born on July 22, 1800 in Kanischa (close to Maribor, Slovenia, Europe), unknown time.  Jakob Lorber was born on July 22, 1800 on the left bank of the River Drau amidst vineyards, in the Village of Kanischa, in the Parish of Jahring, where his father Michael Lorber ...


The Great Gospel of John

God is a true God, a loving Father who has never failed to reveal His will to men. Also during the past almost 2000 years His revelations have kept flowing to individual recipients, to men and women who loved Him deeply with all their being and were thus capable of receiving His Word, either through visions or through the Inner Word, or both. These mystics and seers received the pure divine teaching and it was their task to spread it and thereby restore the original teaching to its former purity. But they did not succeed because people's minds were held captive through fear and ignorance, and only few benefitted from the divine revelations. ...


The Household of God 1

The writer of this work sought in all earnest and found what he had sought. He asked and it was given to him, and since he knocked at the right door, it was opened to him and to all those who are of a good heart and will. But those who did not seek with the heart, but always only with their presumed pure reason and keep examining and criticizing, they knock only on the hard and dead shell of matter instead of the living name of the eternal Giver of all good gifts, and they shall not be given and it will not be opened to them. For the Spirit of the Lord never reveals Itself through the intellect of the worldly-wise, but only in and through the simplicity of the heart to those who are regarded as fools by the worldly-wise. However, soon the intellect of the wise of the world will come to nothing before the simplicity of the fools. ...


The Household of God 2

He who will read this work with a humble, grateful and devout heart will gain from it much grace and blessing, and he will not fail to recognize the true author of the work. However, to the pure-reason-caste it does not make any difference whether they read Daniel, a Sir Walter Scott, or a Rousseau or Hegel; because for the worldly thinking everything is worldly and a higher communication from on high is regarded as an irresponsible fancy of ignorant, fanciful people who through their mysticism want to become someone or achieve something because they cannot do that on the road of pure reason which they do not possess. ...


The Household of God 3

But do not let this deceive foul How often the tour Gospels have been distrusted! But are they because of it of less value in the hearts of the true believers in God? How often have I, the Lord and Giver of life and every gift of true benefit to the latter, been declared by the worldly-wise as just a man, as a mesmerist, also as a fraud and even as a purely fictitious person; and at present millions regard Me as such! Yet other millions are not led astray by it. They, as doers of My Word and not just hearers of it, understood in the simplicity of their hearts that Jesus of Nazareth was more than what the many worldly scholars take Him for. Therefore, where this work is concerned, let no one be influenced by the judgment of the world, which accepts only what is of its own kind, but let him listen only to the voice of the heart of the unsophisticated. They will express a correct opinion to everyone before the eyes of the good Giver. But the intellect of the worldly- wise will on many occasions find this a stumbling block. Good for the one who is not completely shipwrecked in the process! ...


The childhood of Jesus

From the complete text of the original infancy gospel by Jakob Lorber, which was newly revealed in the 19th century, we now know for certain that this gospel of Jesus' childhood was recorded by James, the Lord's brother and the youngest son of Joseph, and is rightly named the Gospel of James. According to Postel († 1581), a French humanist, who brought it from the Orient, it is today named the Protevangelium (= first or oldest gospel) of James. ...


Three days in temple

O Lord, before all else I, a poor sinner, thank You for this magnificent and sublime communication of grace that never existed before and of which I and O then also the whole world, am unworthy! But as You gave us, along with it, such supremely great and undeserved grace, o consent also to bless us, so that we may, filled with pure faith, love You in return with all our heart. Through that, forgive us our many weaknesses. Make us strong in all love for You and our poor brethren, and let us ever refresh the hearts of the afflicted and starving brethren in Your most holy name. ...


7 words on the cross

This booklet “The 7 Words of Jesus Christ on the Cross” was received in 1863 by the inner voice of the Spirit and written down in Graz by Antonie Grossheim, a woman who belonged to the group of friends of the great mystic and servant of God, Jakob Lorber. Further details of Antonie Grossheim can be found in the short, interesting biography “Jakob Lorber”, written by Lorber’s friend Karl Gottfried Ritter von Leitner. According to him, Antonie Grossheim was owner of a house in Graz and happily used her earthly possessions to perform good deeds. She was convinced about the profound writings of Jakob Lorber. She often supported the writer of God who lived in poverty. ...


Beyond the threshold

Brother A. wants to know how the transition from the material to the spiritual life or the so-called life in the beyond takes place, particularly with the worldly great. This transition can be quite easily and naturally described. You see, what difference does it make to the water, as to whether an important man or a poor, insignificant one falls into it? Listen, both will drown in the same manner! Or what distinction does the fire make? Listen, it will consume the emperor as well as the beggar! ...


Bishop Martin - Sunsets into sunrises

He who will read these scenes from the beyond with an open mind and in good faith will easily understand what happens to man in the world of spirits after he has left his physical body, and he will be able to use this knowledge to his advantage. The materialist, however, will reject this book, as he does the Scriptures, claiming it to be the foolish product of a brainless would-be writer. This, of course, is of no importance, for sooner or later he himself will arrive in that world where no one but I will be able to help him! ...


Dr.Strauss

There are, of course, different kinds of texts in large quantities in My book, which the man uses as a weapon against me. We will be satisfied with the texts which already lie prepared, to discern the character of our opponent, and therefore also his great error. ...


Earth and moon

In this book, the Earth reveals herself as a cosmic body which contains nothing dead or inanimate. She is a pulsating, living organism, all of whose organs are precisely analogous to those of the physical human body: an inner world of wonders, where immense elemental powers express a planned and inspired process of development in which all natural occurrences take part. ...


Pauls letter to Assemly in Laodicea

And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the [epistle] from Laodicea. Col. 4, 16 ...


Saturn

In order to have a clear concept of this planetary body which you call Saturn, it is important to know what its actual name denotes: Earth Calmness, World Nothingdom. It is also absolutely necessary to learn about its natural sphere, its distance from the sun, its size, structure, its inhabitants as well as the inhabitants on the rings and moons, as well as its diverse vegetation in accordance with the conditions that prevail because of distinctly varying climates. ...


Secrets of life

Secrets of life For many years in the churches every Sunday a Gospel from the story of My earthly pilgrimage is read to the congregation and interpreted according to the spiritual level of the preacher.  The time is approaching when a reform of the entire Christian worship will be ...


Sermons of the Lord

This series of texts from the Gospels, which shall once more remind you of My words, shall be presented to you in the way in which they apply to your temporal life, and besides they shall show you how these words - spoken almost two thousand years ago - are coming true; for already then I said that the world and everything in it will pass, but My words will remain forever. Amen. ...


The fly

It would be superfluous to show you the shape of the yet-to-be-discussed fly, of which you will surely have many, but we should not neglect her interesting details or her coming into existence, which should be observed with diligence and an attentive spirit ...


The healing pover of the sunlight

Sunlight provides the healing power of nature, and through its radiation, the life-sustaining properties are absorbed by the air, water, herbs, fruits and other mediums utilized by the homeopath for the benefit of the suffering patient. Because the sun is the source of all natural development and is able to convey the healing power necessary for the restoration of good health to the body, why not use, trust and have faith in this divine source of healing power? ...


The whale of Jonah

As to the whale, it contains both natural history and spiritual truth; for it must be that one as well as the other is correct, because without this truth or without the natural historical support the spiritual would have no equivalent. ...


Judas Iscariot - His Fate in the beyond

Now they arrived at Golgotha. As if drawn by a magic power they came to Jesus, the Master! The whole mount Jesus’ words as He once more witnessed of His work and of the eternal love. ...


The Future of the Catholic Church

Jakob Lorber was also told, however, what the fate of the Catholic Church would be in the Last Days, and why judgment was to be passed on it. For many centuries, God has kept silence with regard to the serious transgressions of the hierarchy of the church, but now he speaks, through the prophet of the Last Days. "From now on I shall no longer show patience and regard for those in power. This you (Lorber) may well believe, for I am disclosing this to you." (GGJ.10. 27, 8) ...


The prophet Jakob Lorber predicts coming catastrophies and the true christianity

That Lorber's prophecies about the end time catastrophies in the present century have to be taken seriously is based on the fact that most of his predictions are precisely confirmed by our modern scientists, astronomers, and by scientific research. Indeed, convincing proof has been given that these messages from a world beyond our natural world are genuine. Further, Lorber predicts that there will not be a nuclear war but that, after evolving catastrophies, planet earth will survive. Thus this mystic and prophet greatly increases our natural curiosity as to what will happen in the future of mankind. ...


A Fresh Reading of Swedenborgs Kyriology

A fresh reading for which I used the word relecture in my original German text, exists if a first text is taken up by a second one and in the process put in a different context. The first text is thus not only repeated by the second one but is, above all, re-contextualised and reinterpreted. In the present case, the first text is by Swedenborg, and the second one is that of the new revelation by Lorber. By characterising the relationship between Swedenborg and Lorber as a fresh reading, we would also like to do justice to the observation that, on the one hand, Lorber basically adopts Swedenborg’s world of ideas almost in its entirety, but, on the other hand, he also makes it an integral part of a distinctly different system. Such contradictory observation can be easily upheld by applying a certain model for a fresh reading. ...
