Chapter 233 - LAMECH'S GOOD SPEECH ON THE TRUE SACRIFICE OF THE HEART. HIS REQUEST TO THE LORD FOR INFORMATION ON HIS TWO MISSING SONS, JUBAL AND JABAL. THE LORD'S COMFORTING WORDS (18th January 1843)

233,1. After this instruction Lamech fell on his knees before the Lord and thanked Him in the name of all for the great grace of so clearly showing them how to love Him.

233,2. When Lamech had thus offered his thanks to the Lord both in and from his heart, the Lord told him to rise.

233,3. And Lamech rose and addressed the following words to those to whom he had formerly been a king.

233,4. "You who are now brothers and sisters! Together with me you have now received in your heart, heard with your ears and seen with your eyes that the Lord, the one true, almighty God, the Creator of all things, wants to be to us all a true, holy, most loving Father and has now shown us Himself that we may love Him as well-mannered children love their parents with all the ardor of their hearts.

233,5. "What greater grace could have fallen to us?

233,6. "So let us get hold of our hearts and, always glowing with love, offer them up to Him as a sacrifice and they will be according to His own words the most pleasing offering.

233,7. "But we do not want to sacrifice with impure hearts; for He is holy, exceedingly holy!

233,8. "1 reckon if we always remain actively and watchfully in His love, our hearts will always and easily enter such a state as is pleasing to the most holy, most loving Father.

233,9. "Now prepare yourselves well in your hearts so that we may all be worthy of walking by His side when it pleases Him, the holy, most loving Father, to have His most holy, living Name transferred to the newly built temple.

233,10. "He has come to meet our sinful weakness as a true, most loving, all merciful Father; but with His infinite love we must never forget that He is also an exceedingly holy, infinite God Who in His endless grace allows us to set up His holy tablet in the temple as He has indicated through His mighty messengers.

233,11. "Therefore, we all must be well prepared in our hearts through the pure, mighty love for Him to safely enter His sanctuary."

233,12. Here Lamech turned to the Lord and said: “O You holy Father! Receive these my poor words as if they were worthy of You and bless them in our hearts so that these will always bear pleasing fruits of pure love to You, O holy Father!


233,14. "Look, I am well aware that my daughter and my wives are well looked after, - wherefore I do not worry about them; but I worry about the two sons, not knowing where they are.

233,15. "If it be Your holy will, I should like to see them once more and also lead them to You."

233,16. Here the Lord said to Lamech: "Listen, My dear Lamech! As to your preceding speech to your people, it shall be fully blessed in all hearts, but without coercion or the least limitation of the freedom of the spirit; for your speech was completely true and good in My name.

233,17. "As to your two sons, they cannot come here; for they went together with Horadal to the height and are with him.

233,18. "At the right time I will lead them before you, as well as your two wives and your daughter; but now it is not yet the time.

233,19. "But now let us go and set up the tablet in the temple!

233,20. "So go and bring the tablet here; I shall breathe upon it and you will then carry it ahead of Me and Enoch into the temple.

233,21. "All the others shall follow us; for nobody shall precede you! Amen."
