Chapter 33 - The Lord with the innkeeper in Pella.

33,1. We stopped at that inn, and the innkeeper came to meet us and apologized that he could not accommodate us, for firstly his inn was far too small to take us in, and secondly his food provisions were so low that it would not be sufficient for us. But there was a Greek inn in the center of the city that was provided with everything, and there we would find a good accommodation.

33,2. I said: “I knew this already before you were born, but I did not come here for the sake of the gentiles but only for the sake of the Jews, and if they absolutely do not want to accommodate Me, I still will know what to do. So let us see the space of your inn and your synagogue.”

33,3. The innkeeper looked at Me astonished and said: “Friend, who are You actually that you plainly speak to me with authority?”

33,4. I said: “If you would know who I am you would say to Me: ‘Lord, I have a son who suffers from gout, at which many doctors have tried their art. For this reason I became poor, and my son suffers every day worse pains. Help my son, for all things are possible to You.’ But you do not know, and therefore I told you now.”

33,5. When the innkeeper heard this from My mouth, he thought by himself: “How does this stranger, who never saw this mountain city Pella before, know that my son suffers from gout and that his suffering becomes worse from day to day?”

33,6. Only after that, he turned to Me and said: “Lord, I clearly can see now that You are not an ordinary man, and if You can heal my son, also I will put everything into action, despite my poverty, to show my gratitude to You and Your companions.”

33,7. I said: “Then bring Me to your son, then he will be better.”

33,8. Then the innkeeper brought Me to the room of his sick son. And around the lamenting and wailing person his mother and sisters were mourning and asked God to finally free the sick person from his suffering.

33,9. Then the innkeeper said to his family: “Stop your wailing, for look, there is a foreign Doctor who can and will help my son, and I firmly believe that only He can do that.”

33,10. Those who were mourning said: “If that Doctor can do that, then God the Lord has heard our prayers.”

33,11. I said: “Yes, yes, He has heard them. And now I say from My own power that lives in Me: you who suffers from gout, I want you to become healthy – and do not sin anymore, for you came to suffer because of your secret sins.”

33,12. On these words of Mine, the son became immediately completely healthy, and I said that he should leave his bed and that the mother should prepare something for him to eat, but fresh and pure. This was done at once, and the innkeeper and his healed son did not know how they should thank or even worship Me in the right manner.

33,13. But I said: “Do not worry in your head and heart as to how you should show your gratitude towards Me, for I only look upon the heart, and I know what goes on in there now. But show Me now your inn and the little synagogue.”

33,14. Now the innkeeper did not object anymore to fulfill My wish and brought Me to the rooms of the inn that were finally big enough for us.
