Adam’s famous speech…

Adam’s famous speech from “The Household of God, Volume 1, Chapter 40”, which the Lord dictated and the musician Jakob Lorber penned down in1841/2.

This text is self-explainatory. It connects Creation’s beginning with the evolution spoken of in the last two chapters of Lorber’s text: The Twelve Hours. It in essence explains the human condition. Can’t think of a more poetic way of speaking about something that must have happened not much later than the big bang, and is the root of Adamic man.

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Adam is speaking: “O my children! Open wide your eyes and grasp the vast expanse of the earth, which now, as far as your eyes can reach, is already almost everywhere sprinkled with my blessed children!

Look down into the depths and behold all the dark, vast depths, and behold towards the morning that towering, ever-burning mountain! Take hold of the whole earth, if you are able, and behold me, the first man of this earth.

Yea, what say I, behold me as the first to be, who preceded all creatures in spirit as a creature, and was more luminous than the midst of the suns, and wanted to be greater than God!

And God showed me the power of His holiness, and I was condemned and cast into the infinite depths of the divine sea of wrath, and there I was hurled from one fury to another through infinite depths.

Yes, eternities and eternities may well have passed, alone in spite of this, there was in the vast immensity not even a small place to be found, where I might have rested in this great nothingnes.

3 And as I fell from one infinity to another, and fell on and on for ever and ever and ever, I began to perceive the greatness and infinite and everlasting power of God, and I realised my vain striving.

4 Yet I thought to myself, ‘What use is this insight to me now? I am now too distant from God, and He cannot possibly know any longer anything of me; for in this endless nothingness rules nothing but God’s eternal forgetfulness.

Eternally I have fallen from wrath to wrath, where endless floods of fire constantly beat against my forehead and broad tongues of flame licked at my bowels and burned me more than white-hot slabs of ore; but now I myself have sunk eternally deep under these streams of wrath. Where now is the angry God, and where am I? — There is all numb, endless night!.

5 And behold, as such thoughts of repentance were exchanging themselves within me, I suddenly noticed a being similar to me floating after me from the eternal heights. The being reached me in a flash, seized me with a mighty hand and looked at me with a gentle smile and said: Lucifer, you poor fallen spirit, do you know Me?`

…………………………………………………………………………………….

6 And I said, “How shall I know you in this void and darkness? But if you can destroy me, and make me like that which never was, nor is, nor ever shall be again, do it, and I will thank you in advance, that after my destruction you may not return unthanked from this insubstantial place to your heights unknown to me!”

7 And hear, the being said, “Listen! Not destroy I want you, but preserve, and lead you back by unknown ways to the place from where you went forth full of sinful pride!”

8 And I said, “Do what you can, but consider the greatness of the wrath of God. For I was great, and am come to nought: therefore consider, and if you have arisen any greater than I, that God is everlasting and infinite, and full of flaming wrath.”

9 And the being replied, “Have you never even measured also the love in God? — Behold, though the floods of wrath are great, yet His love reaches to where the deep rivers of fury are eternally dried up under the endless borders of infinity, where a second infinity takes its beginning!

10 And I replied, “Behold, when I was yet a prince of all light, there was shown unto me a dim flame. This I should have worshipped, for it was the eternal love of God. I could not believe this in my radiance and considered myself far above the dim flame. And behold, I was seized by the fury of my height of light. I ignited myself still more and wanted to completely destroy the little flame with my light; alone then the divine wrath seized me and I was hurled here into this eternal, dark void, which I have only reached after eternities.

……………………………………………………………………………………..

11 And behold, then at once I saw the little flame hovering over the head of this being, and the being said to me again: Lucifer, do you recognise Me now? — And I answered: Yes, Lord, I recognise You; You are God’s love and reach further than His infinite flood of wrath. Look upon me in Your compassion, and create a firm place for me, that I may find rest in this eternal void!”

12 And behold, a tear from the bright eye of eternal love rolled down into the dark spaces of eternity and became a great body of water. And love breathed upon the great waters in the deep, and the waters were parted, and there came countless drops from the waters. And the flame above the head of eternal love expanded in an instant, and kindled the droplets into innumerable great suns; and the suns, in the heat of eternal love, spouted earths, and these their moons.

13 And behold, from the midst of the tear of God this earth swam up to me, and love blessed and breathed upon it, and the earth blossomed like a garden and was smooth, beautiful and even; but no living being was yet to be seen there. But love looked upon the earth, and it teemed with life of all kinds, in the seas and other waters, on firm ground, as in the brisk air.

14 Behold, I saw all this and am now fully aware of it by the special grace of the Lord. — But when the earth was thus appointed according to the will of God’s love according to the eternal order, then love turned its eyes upward to God and said:

15 Let Us, O holy Powers of the Father, make man and give him a living soul, so that what has fallen may find a resting place and humble itself before You and Me and all Power of Our Holiness.

……………………………………………………………………………………..

16 Then it thundered from the fire-filled eternal spaces, and the thunder was the voice of God, and that voice only love understood, and formed at that from fine clay — see — these feet that have been carrying me for over nine hundred years, the hands and — in short, as I stand before you, so eternal love formed me!”

It follows Adam’s report of his creation, as he perceived and witnessed it from within…
