Chapter 208 - LAMECH'S VOW AND COVENANT OF LOVE WITH THE LORD. KISEHEL'S TESTIMONY TO THE INVISIBLE ARCHFIEND, SATAN (11th December 1842)

208,1. When Lamech had heard this from Kisehel, he became exceedingly glad and cheerful and said to Kisehel: "Mighty friend and brother! To the almighty, eternal God and Creator of all heavenly forces, this earth and all there is in, on and above it, lives, breathes and thinks, be forever all my love, honor and worship because He is so merciful and exceedingly gracious in that He has now through you talked to me and shown me the right way to life!

208,2. "For only now am I fully restored and know how matters stand.

208,3. "This is why from now on Lamech will exert all his strength in making amends to all the surviving people for the evil he had done with and to them.

208,4. "All this I, Lamech, swear to you all by the most holy, living name of the Most High!"

208,5. Thereupon Kisehel said to Lamech: "Listen, brother Lamech, the Lord did not demand of you to make a vow to Him; however, since you made a voluntary declaration of your loyalty to God, you have thereby made a firm covenant of love with Him, the most holy Father. He has accepted it; therefore, He will strengthen you without failing to test you in proper measure; in this way you will have plenty of opportunity to more and more consolidate the loyalty you swore to Him.

208,6. "So remain faithful to your covenant; the Lord will indicate to you all the roads you have to walk in His most holy name"

208,7. "Whatever difficulties may confront you, you shall not look at them but at all times act in accordance with the Lord's will, and be faithfully assured that the almighty, holy Father will bless for you any undertaking in His name and ensure its full success.

208,8. "Look, it was no small task for us to rescue you, dear brother, from perdition; but the Lord was with us, and here you are, for us surely the most glorious reward for all our fear, trouble and work! For we did not only have to do battle with you, but also with a by far mightier enemy than you yourself were; and this was the great, for you invisible, old prince of deceit, self-seeking, all cunning and trickery, the declared enemy of God, who from the beginning wanted to be more than God.

208,9. "Since God's might deposed him, he is full of wrath and thinks and schemes only as to what damage he might do to God.

208,10. 'This great enemy is at present still very mighty and his kingdom is still immensely great; for realizing quite well the extent of God's fatherly love and patience, he keeps sinning recklessly at any time because God's mercy left him with both his free will and his kingdom.

208,11. 'Therefore, behold, dear brother, with this enemy we had to deal first and fully subdue him before we could even approach you so as to rescue you; thus we had to fight a great and immensely mighty battle on your behalf.

208,12. "In like manner also you, dear brother, will always have to encounter a hard battle; but remember always your holy covenant with God and remain always completely faithful to it, and you will overcome all dangers and will finally, a mighty herald with the crown of victory, enter into the eternal, imperishable, most blissful and freest life.

208,13. "Now receive our blessing; the Lord's love, grace and mercy be always with you and all your people!

208,14. "And so let us thank, glorify and praise God and then retire to the strengthening repose of our body!"

208,15. Then they all proceeded to the throne-room where they glorified and praised the most holy Name; after that they went to their night's rest, and the seven messengers stayed in Lamech's antechamber.
