Service to Others – the Homecoming of a Missionary
In this lecture we learn of a missionary’s homecoming to the world beyond. He has been active on behalf of God and the Redeemer and made sacrifices for his fellow human beings. He never felt alone or abandoned due to his intimate connection with the spiritual world. Ascending spirits as well as angels of God stood by him during his earthly life. They strengthened him with spiritual drink and invisible food and protected him on his dangerous paths. Upon his return to the spiritual world he was shown how he was helped and became acquainted with the spiritual beings who have led and supported him in life.
Retribution for Unfair Business and Hardheartedness
After a brief greeting of the controlling spirit, Amado, an ascending spirit speaks. He describes having entered a world of distress after his death. He carried the burden of his misdemeanours for decades in the spiritual world, according to earthly time measure, and suffered the same kind of hardheartedness he used to confront his fellow human beings with. Gradually, he realized his faults, regretted them deeply and learned how to turn to God in prayer. Eventually he could be freed from his burden and commenced his spiritual ascent. Following Amado’s report spirit teacher Joseph answers a few questions concerning this lecture.
The Realm of God Is Among You
It is a very great pleasure for believing Christians to celebrate Easter, the feast of the resurrection of Christ, because on this occasion the Son of God clearly demonstrated that life after earthly death continues in the divine world. Christianity is also repeatedly reminded of the great battle Christ fought against evil both on earth and in the realm of death, as well as of the fundamental changes Christ’s victory brought about for each individual.
The Spiritual Teachers of Human Beings
Many people ask God for a “master” to accompany them in life and for spiritual gifts too – for this talent or that talent. With the help of the divine world, a human being can develop his talents provided the desired attribute exists in his soul. A sincere effort must be made, however, to lead a spiritually elevated life which will then make it possible to be given a teacher.
History of Christianity – Its Background and Development
Over the course of the centuries, Christ’s teaching has experienced many changes at the expense of its vivacity. In the very beginning, the roots of Christian teaching were sound and strong, but soon after the Redeemer’s departure these roots were damaged and began to suffer.
The decay of the church today is proof of the fallacious way in which it was once built up through power and violence; after all, that which is the truth and will of God will not perish.
Today’s freedom of thinking allows Christians to return to the origin or source from which the truth flows lucidly.
The Former True Church of Christ and the Church of Christ Today
In the true church of Christ human beings are connected with Christ and God through the holy spiritual world of God. Divine spirits once instructed the congregation and it was also they who decided who was to be the leader or bishop of the community; they guided him in his function. The bishop supported the community with help and advice and recognized when a person had to make reparations thanks to the help of God. Therefore, the bishop at that time had a different function; he was the link between human beings and the spiritual world of God.
