Edition 1/2018

The Reason Behind Human Life
Why do we live on this earth? What is the purpose of human existence? Why is there a material creation with its manifold life forms? The answers to these questions can be found far back in the past, in the world beyond, the spiritual world, where ages ago a momentous event took place.
Part of the spiritual beings became guilty of disloyalty and disobedience against God’s order which led to their apostasy, their outcast from heaven and the loss of their divine consciousness. However, through the mercy of God a way was prepared for all the fallen to regain their divine consciousness step by step. And so, human beings tread on their long and arduous, but also hopeful, way back to their spiritual homeland.

How the Rift in the Spiritual World Came about
Loyalty to Christ and obedience to God and his commandments were made clear to all spiritual beings from the beginning of the divine creation and were required for a harmonious and peaceful life together in heaven. This lecture illustrates the events that took place when beings rebelled against this order.

Jesus – the Redeemer of Mankind
Christ, the Son of God, came into this world with a very specific mission. The Father gave him the task of redeeming mankind from spiritual death and opening the way back to the Father’s house. Christ had to make great sacrifices and to endure agony and torment in order to fulfil this task. After all, the base spiritual world did everything it could to bring about his downfall. They tried to discourage him and to dissuade him from his faith in God and in his mission. Yet, despite all the suffering, Christ remained steadfast and emerged victorious over Lucifer.

There Was No Return to Heaven Prior to Christ’s Redemption
At the time of Christ’s teaching ministry the scribes and Pharisees sent out people who were to ask trick questions in order to destabilize Christ. However, Jesus was quick-witted and gave them such clever answers that they returned to their principals empty-handed. In addition to his replies he also pointed toward his deed of redemption.

Sources of Strength and Confidence on the Path of Life
God has given every human being the means to cope with his fate and to be happy. In order to strengthen himself for his life path everyone has to find the sources which are suitable for him and which give him joy and healing.

Marked for a Special Task
By having led a truly pious life and having aligned themselves with the will of God, deceased human beings have accelerated their ascent and can be given entirely different preparation in the spiritual world than those who return without belief in God. In such cases the divine world can entrust these individuals with a significant task for their next life on earth. This is illustrated in the following story of a man who distinguished himself in his earthly life through peacefulness, justice and the defence of his fellow human beings; in short, he became an example to others.
