The Mission of Jesus was to build a bridge by which mankind would be in a position to free itself from matter and attain the free spiritual life. The condition was total submission to the will of God and thus a sinless life. Initially God created Adam for that purpose. But Adam failed.
So God had no choice but to send His "Son" to fulfill this mission. Jesus chose to obey these conditions out of His free will. By leading a sinless life and even freely accept death on the cross, Jesus built this bridge. This bridge itself is salvation because every human being can take it. The only prerequisites are to repent and believe and love Jesus Christ.
To read how God describes this mission and the meaning of the sacrifice of Jesus in great detail,
Explaining what happened after His death on the cross and what was the
compelling reason of Him becoming man and this death the Lord
elaborates (GGJ 11:075.0 2 on):
Jesus‘s active death
has already previously been explained on several occasions that Adam,
as the first man of this earth - that is, a man possessing full
spiritual freedom - had been created so as to represent a form, out of
which matter could be led back into the free life of spirit. This
entailed above all the overcoming of matter itself, that is,
voluntarily a state had to be brought about where all base qualities,
such as worldly lusts, desires and inclinations, had to be eliminated
in order to enable a free ascent to the purest spirit-life.
has been said often enough that the human soul comes from the minutest
beginnings, grows and develops to ever higher spheres of awareness
until it, finally, in man again reaches that form which is no longer
capable of development as an earthly form, but only as a soul-form.
Thus, in man two principles meet: The end of material life as clearly
defined self-awareness and the beginning of an immutable life of the
soul in the highest attainable perfection of form. Therefore, on this
thin borderline of earthly life man cannot ignore the awareness of
being alive - for he himself is proof to this -, yet he can be totally
unaware of having reached the threshold to a spiritual life, which is
now beginning in its unchangeable human form. In other words: After
going through many physical changes having as their goal the human
form, this remains now unchanged in its general aspect. But now there
begins a change of the soul, the purpose of which is to more and more
approach the God-Spirit Itself and unite with It.
can think, let him think! What can happen if this transition is not
effected? For here, matter and spirit oppose each other diametrically.
Though purifying one another more and more, as polarities they are
never able to touch completely. Here a road must be shown, a bridge
built over which one can attain from matter to spirit! This road must
be an example which everybody is able to follow. Unless this road were
found, that is, unless a man entered upon the same, it would be
impossible to shake off matter and enter into a free, spiritual life.
once they have reached the borderline from where the spiritual road is
possible, the Deity Itself must endeavor to draw to It Its created
beings, whom out of love and for the sake of their salvation It forced
onto the road of matter, thus leading them into the relationship of the
Father to the child. Adam was meant to build this bridge within
himself. He actually had an easy task, for the enticements of matter
were very slight compared to now.
All that was required in his
case was to conquer himself, be obedient, and the bridge was built and
spiritual life could awaken and blossom within him, since obedience to
God is the only means by which to test a man, who is otherwise free of
sin. All other sins follow from disobedience, as anyone can easily
observe with children. Adam fell, and thus a stepping back into matter
occurred, that is, into that polarity which can distance itself as far
from God as it can ascend to God and to ever-growing bliss.
Adam and the origin of all sins
this fall, sin had come into the world, because God does not ever
create a thing in order to again destroy it, but the once taken road is
followed and sought to correct, as it were, since divine wisdom from
the outset makes allowance for a failure. When it is a matter of
creating free beings, not spirit-machines, the only road to it is the
road of self-development in man.
But with the division of the
human race into nations a vast number of sins of every description
occurred which resulted in a succession of ever deeper falls, their
beginning as disobedience being an accomplished fact. In other words:
Had Adam not been disobedient, none of his descendants could have been
disobedient, because he would have destroyed in himself a germ which
could no longer have been passed on. But Adam fertilized this germ, and
in his descendants it grew into a tree which hardly allowed the light
of the sun to shine through its rigid foliage.
extremely strong souls have tried to break through this foliage so that
the sun could shine through, the very ancient religions of mankind
being proof of the partial success of such attempts. But these strong
souls did not succeed in striking the core of the tree and break its
crown to bring about the death of this mighty tree.
not succeed because they themselves were not without sin in their
earthly life, first enjoying the world before they felt thirsty for
truth, for the knowledge of God. The world tasted stale to them, only
then did they look for something better.
"The ancient Indian
religions are the oldest known to you; for the ancient Egyptian
religion in its true version was the oldest, but its knowledge has been
lost. All these teachers were such strong souls, who broke through the
foliage for themselves, showed the way, described and said true and
genuine things, yet were unable to write differently than they did in
their time, so that many things have now become superseded, which is
easy to understand considering the circumstances. Let the following
serve as explanation:
Jesus - the visible God
to His incarnation as Jesus, God was invisible. No one could attain to
His contemplation, but only to the perception of His nature, which of
course could only manifest as light, God Himself being pure light
within, which sends out its rays. Yet wherever there is light, it is
omnipresent; it permeates and quickens everything.
those who attained spiritually to the Deity, could perceive the Deity
only as a life within the light, a floating and resting in the light,
the blissful uniting with the light. When the man Jesus merged with the
eternal GodSpirit within Him, the perception of the Deity for the one
approaching It was totally different, - it was simply the approach of
one man to the other and, therefore, the ancient seers are right, but
so are the newer ones living after Me.
"After the fall of
Lucifer, when the material world came into existence, the Spiritual Sun
as the seat of the Deity was created. However, it was not to be
understood as the only concentration. The light was present everywhere
in the spiritual world, but prior to My earthly life this Spiritual Sun
had not been visible to physical man as long as his soul was bound to
his body. When it became visible, it was a crowning of the faith of the
spirit-beings. For it was visible only to them, but now it can also be
seen by any person who believes in Me as soon as his spiritual eye is
opened, because the Man Jesus can at all times reveal His entire
Kingdom to all who believe in Him.
One primordial religion
"The question remains: Why are the same main features found in all the ancient religions?
it were not so, it would merely surprise the one who has understood
these revelations. For if these ancient religions are forerunners of
the teaching of the Son of Man and Son of God, they must comprise the
main features of the latter and not different ones. That the lives of
individual teachers who arose show similarities with Mine is based on
the same fact.
If the ancient Egyptian religion in its original
main features, which through the later polytheism have only vaguely
survived to our time, were entirely known, it would be said: The
Christian religion has been taken from the ancient Egyptian one, so
similar are they, particularly if the individual natures of Osiris,
Isis and Horns were clearly recognized in their original meaning.
How did I succeed in breaking the tree of sin, not only breaking through the foliage?
First, let everyone clearly understand what it means ‘to sin‘!
a person will quickly find the answer and say: Sin is everything that
offends against God‘s will! This is quite true. But what is God‘s will
and how does a man recognize it, who does not even believe in God, let
alone recognize His will?
Here, judgment must be made from the
viewpoint of human life. No one can sin against God unless he has
recognized Him. Just as nobody will be offended by a blind person who
denies the existence of light, only because he does not see it, God
will not oppress the one who in his foolishness does not recognize Him.
Yet a blind man can offend his neighbor or another man whom, although
he does not see him, he hears and feels and whose directly perceptible
benefactions he can enjoy, by opposing him in some manner. He can sin
against his love; for, in spite of his blindness he cannot refuse to
acknowledge the existence of the same.
Thus it is also with the
spiritually blind, who can easily offend against the commandment of
neighborly love, even though he does not recognize God. Neigborly love
is the way to the love for God, - this has often been explained.
Jesus the redeemer
the man Jesus complied with this commandment in the minutest detail,
and that from his childhood, also the love for God in him kept growing
so that, finally, he could merge with it. Sin had no hold over him; for
he was striving to pass from the initially visible path of neigborly
love, which manifests through external works, to the inner, invisible
path of the love for God.
God had given Adam a commandment,
namely, unconditional obedience. He disregarded it and fell. The man
Jesus out of love voluntarily complied with this commandment to do
nothing without the Father‘s will, thereby becoming the glowing example
to follow. Thus, he attained within himself the level Adam could not
attain, thereby reconciling within him the Deity, offended in Its
holiness by the disregard of Its commandment.
Wisdom gave the
commandment. The will, the strength, demanded compliance. Love found
the way to fulfil the conditions in the man Jesus, so that he could
bring back the former state of bliss for all beings. Herein lies the
redemption that now this road leading directly to God is opened up, and
that this road was walked by the Son of Man, Jesus, who thereby became
the Son of God. The death of Jesus is the sealing of His unconditional
obedience. It would not have been necessary. However, since mankind in
its unlimited free will demanded it through Lucifer‘s influence, Jesus
also submitted to this demand and died physically.
one sin into another engenders an ever-growing hardness of soul. One
speaks of stony hearts to express this condition. How far this can lead
is unfathomable. Matter, the enjoyment of external things, keeps
growing, and naturally the awareness of any spiritual-mental essential
core becomes lost more and more.
This hardening finally leads
to an animal state, which knows nothing but preservation and
procreation, without any spiritual, inner freedom. The salvation from
such a state is only offered by a purely spiritual teaching which leads
to a moral awareness of human dignity, and this teaching was given in
unmistakable brevity and greatest possible clarity.
with it bursts the chains of matter, loosens the bonds of earthly
pleasure-seeking and, finally, leads the material desires and appetites
into a state of the purest perception, where evil is recognized yet no
longer done, because the personal self keeps shrinking more and more,
whereas otherwise this self (egoism) keeps growing more and more. The
more it disappears, the more the material bonds loosen, (soften) until,
finally, they are no longer felt as such.
Breaking the tree of sin
the tree of sin was - and could be - broken only through Jesus, because
he comprised within himself the very God-Spirit that had already given
Adam the commandment, which he did not fulfil.
One will now
say: Where is the proof that this is so and that the earlier teachers
did not achieve the same? For, what is stated here, is beyond human
vision, is an innermost process about which none other than Jesus
Himself can speak, whereas the outward process, the appearance of an
excellent teacher, his conduct and good precepts, as well as his death,
has occurred more than once.
Why is here the tree of sin
itself truly broken and there only the foliage broken through? The
outward effect in the world is hardly perceptible, for sin flourishes
at the moment as never before, - and by other than external signs
mankind cannot judge!
At first glance it does seem so, yet at a closer look it does not!
walking the inner path will soon become aware of what it is truly like.
The outward appearance means nothing; for it is an empty shell. He who
does not want to walk the inner path, can be convinced or given a
picture of this path as little as a blind man can be given a notion of
colours. Here, the result decides. The path is there, enter upon it, -
Without Me nobody can come to the Father, and
without faith in Jesus no wise man has ever felt the almighty Deity as
the First Cause of love, which can present itself as a person. The
Invisible becomes visible only in Jesus, and this merging of both in
the human form makes possible the drawing near of the created being to
its Creator, the absorption of matter in spirit, the leading back of
the sequence of sins committed upwards beyond the borderline between
matter and spirit, points which otherwise cannot possibly touch. The
bridge to it is the life of Jesus. - There arises now the question: How
far actually could the deceased souls go prior to the death of the Son
Of course, they could, if they followed the teaching of
one of the many earlier teachers, attain to cognition and inner
happiness, but not ever to a contemplation of the personified Deity.
happened for the first time while the body of Jesus was lying in the
tomb. There lay the purely earthly body, whereas the soul with its
indwelling God-Spirit passed into the beyond and there showed itself to
all as the One He is and was.
This is only to be hinted at here. Later on, also this event shall be clearly explained.
this manifestation in the spirit-world began the building and
populating of the New Jerusalem as the City of God, which will continue
to exist forever".
