131,1. After this truly life-giving and -explaining lesson Kenan became exceedingly glad, and many others too, and all thanked from the bottom of their hearts for this great revelation from which they now clearly saw and recognized what constitutes the true life and how it unfolds, and how it so clearly differs from the sham-life of the flesh, or rather of death.

131,2. After they had all thus thanked and praised and glorified the high Abedam, also Enos was moved to tears, made a turn and went with a contrite heart to the Father.

131,3. When he arrived there walking slowly and shyly, Abedam offered him His hand and said:

131,4. “Well, Enos, tell Me, for what did you decide, - for life or for utter annihilation?

131,5. "Believe Me: Nothing is impossible to Me. For behold, for your sake I am going to tell that mountain which there, in the morning, is still smoking, burning and emitting fire: Be destroyed!

131,6. "Now look there! Do you still see a trace of the mountain, which has withstood so many millennia?

131,7. “Tomorrow you will already see the lushest grass and many fine little fruit trees sprout from the new soil in the spot previously occupied by the great, high mountain, which is now a plain, almost ten thousand fathoms in length and seven thousand in breadth.

131,8. "From this you can already gather that nothing is impossible to Me; and so answer the question I just asked you."

131,9. But Enos, like all the others almost beside himself with shock and breath-taking amazement at this sudden, unexpected phenomenon which owing to the considerable clearness of the night was observable by all, could hardly utter a single word; instead, he prostrated himself before the Lord of all might and implored Him in his heart to sustain him and forgive his great, blasphemous folly.

131,10. But Abedam promptly strengthened him and, lifting him from the ground, said to him:

131,11. "Enos, look, like you every dead man behaves! Though not talking as you previously have talked, he nevertheless acts as if he preferred death to life in its utmost perfection.

131,12. "However, when the one thus acting sees the death of his body approach he takes fright and begins to despair.

131,13. "I ask here: Why, then, is such a fool not consistent?

131,14. "Why is he afraid of the destruction towards which he has worked so decidedly throughout his whole life?

131,15. "I answer here in your stead and say:

131,16. "As long as the dead still perceived the strength of life within him he was like a lord over death, not fearing it so much. For, living in the free perception of the things around him he cannot know that in death and annihilation he will no longer perceive them.

131,17. "Only when he notices that the strength of his sham-life is ebbing away, that his senses are becoming weaker, the things around him beginning to disappear, and he begins to feel the might of death, the horror of non-existence and the pressure of destruction, does he perceive the great difference between death and life.

131,18. “Then he will try everything wherewith to restore his life.

131,19. "Yet - here also I say: - At the end it will be too late for many!

131,20. "For the true, imperishable, prevailing, free life is like a fully mature fruit, but the natural or physical life like an immature one.

131,21. "With the mature fruit the core has become free and firm and the outer fleshy covering can be separated from the fully alive core without the least disadvantage to the same. For the core has absorbed all the life and is no longer aware of death, but only of a separate, full life within, which is nowhere in touch with the outer fleshy mass, - wherefore the latter, as I said, can fall away without the least disadvantage for the fruit of the core.

131,22. "How different it is with an immature fruit where the outer mass still lives a joint weak life with the core, where the core dies when the outer mass is excessively damaged!

131,23. "Therefore, let everyone strive for the full maturation of his spirit, which will take place once the spirit has rid itself of all the threads and fibers of the desires of his flesh.

131,24. "Once a person has achieved this, he has become a master of life.

131,25. "However, as all fruits ripen only through the warmth of the sun, you too mature for life at, in, and through the warmth of My love within you for Me.

131,26. "And so also you, Enos, become fully mature for life one day at this breast which so endlessly abounds in the sole true, eternal and most free, mighty and blissful life.

131,27. "Understand it well, and so live truly at all times and forevermore! Amen."
