Chapter 228 - THE LORD'S SPEECH ON THE TRUE WORSHIP OF GOD (9th January 1843)

228,1. Presently the Lord told all the children from the lowlands to rise from the ground and then said to them:

228,2. "Listen all of you, My little children! Iam the one, holy, almighty God and Creator of all things and beings in heaven and on earth! Outside of Me there is no other God and all infinity and all eternities are entirely filled with the might of My love, wisdom, mercy and grace; thus I am from eternities a Lord over everything completely, for everything is out of Me and necessarily subject to My endless might!

228,3. "For how could it be otherwise since all there exists is only there owing to My will, exists out of the same and can therefore not ever escape from it. For, if something could escape from My might, it would of necessity have to cease to exist, for in all infinity nothing can ever exist except through and in My will, which is the sole fundamental condition of all existence, filling everywhere the endless space perfectly and eternally!

228,4. 'This being so, and not possibly otherwise, you must recognize Me as Who I am, namely, as the one God and the sole Lord!

228,5. "For only He is a Lord Who is in the full eternal possession of all infinite might, strength and power out of Himself.

228,6. "I do possess this eternally and endlessly; thus I am a sole Lord! Notwithstanding all this you shall not wallow in the dust before me and needlessly soil your body and its covering; for I did not give you an upright body that you should use it like the worms, but only to walk at all times before Me, your Father, as free people, as My children and among yourselves as brothers and sisters.

228,7. “Therefore, you shall now learn from My mouth that I take no pleasure at all in any physical service! For you were not endowed with the body that you should serve Me with the same in one or the other manner; for the body was given you that it may serve you at the right time and in due measure for the strengthening of your spirit which is your innate being.

228,8. "What then does it mean if someone throws himself physically into the dust before Me?

228,9. "Am I supposed to take pleasure in it, or do you become better for having wallowed in the dust for a while?

228,10. "I tell you: All this is idle folly! Behold, assuming someone is a workman requiring some tool,- would it not be foolish of him if prior to performing his job he rolled his tool about in the dust and mire for a while out of sheer respect before the work he is to do with it?

228,11. "I reckon the workman will do better by properly using the tool for its intended purpose and nothing else!

228,12. 'The well-performed work will be proof of the respect for the work, but not the tool.

228,13. "I am the principal work for your spirit and am always unchangingly one and the same God!

228,14. "Whoever honors Me and humbles himself before Me, let him honor Me and be humble before Me incessantly; for I am at all times holy before everyone!

228,15. "Hence, he who wants to honor Me with his body in the dust, has to wallow in the dust incessantly day and night.

228,16. "If I demanded this of you, I would have made you worms, but not free men.

228,17. "The true mark of honor consists in that all of you do My will incessantly, which was revealed to you threefold, namely, in the order of the nature of things, then through your own spiritual heart which is nothing but love, and through My messengers; and it is now being confirmed through me personally.

228,18. "Love Me above all and each other as each loves himself, and you will honor Me in spirit and thus in all truth!

228,19. 'This is My will and alone counts as something with Me; all else is idle and foolish.

228,20. "So do accordingly, and I shall always be pleased with you. Amen."
