Chapter 198 - LAMECH'S VICTORY SPEECH AND HUMBLE CONFESSION. KISEHEL'S REPLY (24th November 1842)

198,1. And Thubalkain went with a more cheerful heart to his father Lamech and, falling on his face, there pondered over all his former conduct and afterwards in the full contrition of his heart asked the now recognized one true God's forgiveness for all those actions he had carried out contrary to the well-perceivable admonitions of his heart.

198,2. 'The glorifying of the most holy Name lasted close on an hour when, finally, the extremely edified Lamech rose and exclaimed in front of the throne: "It is accomplished; the great victory is mine!

198,3. "Oh listen, all you peoples! The Lord, the infinite, almighty Creator of heaven and earth, the eternally great God, against Whom we all have direly blasphemed, has looked upon us and because of our great blindness repealed the just judgment which would have swallowed us all up forever into death!

198,4. “Therefore, I will rejoice my whole life long because the Lord is so gracious and full of the greatest patience, forbearance, love and mercy.

198,5. "Mightily great was my wickedness, with which I strove to invade the heavens of life; but from my wickedness the Lord recognized my poverty and had mercy on me.

198,6. 'Therefore, now and forever to Him alone all my praise!

198,7. „O Lord, I will henceforth praise you with a thousand tongues because You are so gracious, mild and merciful!

198,8. „O you my miserable throne! You erstwhile power center of the laws begetting abominations, you my most faithful image, - what were you? And what are you now? - Sitting on you I cursed what you are now bearing!

198,9. „O Lord, how great must Your goodness be, how great Your love, that You suffer and bear to see Your most holy name borne by the same chair which was a carrier of so many, even countless, abominations!

198,10. „O you my spirit, praise the Lord for being of such inexpressible goodness forever!

198,11. "Lord, You Loving and Just One! What shall I do lest I appear one day before You so abominably?

198,12. "Oh, tell me graciously through Your faithful servants; but only if it be Your will. From now on nothing shall be done according to my will; for I have realized the impotence of my will and all its wickedness. Therefore, I now loathe it.

198,13. "Wherefore I no longer have a will of my own; thus at all times only Your almighty and most holy will be done!"

198,14. Following these words Kisehel quickly went to Lamech, embraced him and said to him:

198,15. "Brother, dear brother! If you knew how much we all rejoice over you, truly, you would find life difficult!

198,16. "However, of this be fully assured: If you continue as you are now, the long-lasting barriers between the height and the lowlands will disappear and it may well please the most holy Father to send also to you the high priest Enoch, personally appointed by Him so that he may teach you to walk the road of love.

198,17. "Brother, I tell you in the name of Him, Who has assigned us all to you: Once the temple is completed, you and your son Thubalkain will enter in our midst the holy heights, where for the first time you shall recognize the true life for yourself and all your people in its fullness and make it completely your own! So let the Lord's will remain your own sole will, and thus you have also the Lord's answer to your question through me, and it is as follows:

198,18. "Act accordingly, and I will hallow you on the heights of My children!"

198,19. t this information Lamech, with the just rising Thubalkain, was beside himself with joy. For a long time he could not talk; for the more than sublime promise had almost paralyzed his tongue.

198,20. It was some time before he collected himself again and said: „O friend, O brother! What did you say? The feet of the grossest of sinners will one day be allowed to enter upon the most hallowed heights? My eyes, nearly blinded by abominable deeds, shall once more behold the great glory of the children, of the almighty God?

198,21. "And with my hands, dripping with the blood of my brothers and my poor people, I shall be allowed to touch the hem of the garment of those begotten out of God? No, no, - not ever, brother!

198,22. "Not in eternity can Lamech ever become in the least worthy of such grace! Therefore, O friends and brothers, give me a different kind of answer; for in truth, in very truth, this one is not fitting for a sinner like me."

198,23. And Kisehel answered Lamech: „O brother, -look, I, too, was a great and gross sinner before God, in my innate light-sphere surely no less than you in your innate great blindness.

198,24. "Yet when I had confessed my great sin before Him, the most loving Father, after He had forestalled me with His endless grace and mercy, the most holy Father seized me with His almighty hands, raised the worm before Him in the dust, fully forgave him his great sin and instead filled him with the power of eternal life.

198,25. "Behold, brother, this is how the most loving Father deals with the sinner who contritely turns his heart to Him.

198,26. "So stick to the answer and be greatly comforted; for not a jot of it will be changed. What God has spoken will remain in eternity as He has said it.

198,27. "To Him therefore all honor, all praise and all our love forever; for He alone is worthy of receiving from us all glory, all praise, all adoration and all love and His holy will be done forever! Amen."
