Chapter 243 - On the main obstacles to fulfillment of the promises.

243,1. Raphael says, “I deserve neither thanks nor honor, but the Lord alone!

243,2. But it is good that you have understood that in the true depth of life! You will be able to advise anyone at any time with these means who will come to you and say: Friend, I have well understood and believed what you taught me, but until this moment there has been no sign of the promised effects! What else should I do? I have left my good old religion of my father in which I often found all comfort, the best advice and the necessary help in all sorts of afflictions, and this new religion leaves me along with my neighbor as orphans; no plea is ever heard and no dubious doubt is illuminated! Where then is your magnificent God about whom you promised all happiness and other wonderful things?!

243,3. But you will then be able to answer him easily: Friend, the religion Is not to blame, but your lack of understanding! You have truly accepted the teaching in your reason, and you have also tried to act strictly according to it and were waiting for the fulfillment of the prophecy which would bring you advantages; but you did the good deeds only for the sake of the advantages and not just for the good! You were only active from your reason, but never from your heart! This remained hard and cold like before the conception of the purely divine teaching, thus you achieved neither the deed nor the fulfillment of the prophecy through the dead and blind faith!

243,4. Wake your heart now! Do everything that you do out of the true reason for life! Love God for His own sake above all and likewise your neighbor!

243,5. Do good for the sake of good out of the foundation of life and do not ask for the fulfillment of the prophecy based on your faith or your deed whether it will come or not! For the prophecy is a consequence of the fact that you believe actively in your heart, feel and become active out of the most living love. But if you were like a person, as you have thought and acted until now, who ploughed in a dream and sowed and wanted then in woken situation to reap, but found neither field nor sowed fruit.

243,6. The knowledge of human understanding, faith and action is a vain dream and has no use for life. Man must take everything to his heart in which the life is living; whatever he lays in the heart will bloom and bear the promised fruit.

243,7. Whoever there does not know or does not want to know how to manage his life and is selfish also through his faith and through his thoughts, will never achieve the fulfillment of the promise; for that is the fruit of the activity of the heart!

243,8. If you will respond him who asks you about the not yet fulfilled promise in this way, then you will be left in peace and he will begin to desire to become truly active in his heart.

243,9. If he does this, it will soon begin to be shown with him that the promise of God’s teaching is no vain empty promise; if he carries on however to only follow his own reasoning and to act accordingly, then he will only have himself to blame if he never reaches any fulfillment of the prophecy made for the whole of his earthly life – and also on the other side with great difficulty! Tell me whether you understand all this so well out of the base of life!” [243,10] Finally Philopold says for once, “Oh friend from the heavens! Who could not understand that! Whoever lives only in the heart as you do, and thinks and feels, he understands all the circumstances of life of the heart very easily and clearly; but whoever only lives, thinks and feels in his brain, for him are the circumstances of life as good as nothing. We have now discussed this issue very tangibly clearly, and as I see, it is beginning g to dawn in the east and the Morning star already stands significantly high. Therefore I believe that we should now move on to something else!”
