»The Prophet« No. 1
Friends or Foes of the
A prophet gives to all people, and according to the law of God, food for thought and answers to the complications and deplorable state of affairs of this world. But he also speaks about his task and, in so doing, about himself, too.
In this pamphlet, a Christ-friend asks a few questions of the prophetess of God in Universelles Leben:
Gabriele, why did you make a declaration in the "Christ State" about your decision to step aside?
The law of God, the law of love and wisdom, speaks in my heart. If people had learned to look into the words, they would be able to understand many things that otherwise seem incomprehensible to them.
For me to "step aside" means to step to the side of those who bear responsibility, and not be in the foreground. In this world, it is usual that people in responsible positions continue to stay in the foreground until they are voted out under pressure or are forced by illness to give up their position. Often the result is that no other persons of responsibility within the organization are able to take over the tasks of the one who has either been voted out or stepped down, so that a basic area of work or responsibility can be carried on without great difficulties or set-backs.
Does this means that the work of God was brought into this world by Christ through the prophetic word, through you, His prophetess, and that it will also continue to be guided as before through the prophetic word of the Christ of God?
The work of God, the Homebringing Mission of Jesus Christ, from which Universelles Leben grew, was built by Christ through the prophetic word. It started with a small cell group and grew until it has achieved worldwide stability. By way of His speaking instrument, the word of God goes out into the whole world to millions of people. I have already said that a prophet cannot go into retirement; in accordance with the voice of the heart, he will continue to fulfill the will of God until God calls him or until the span of his life on earth draws to an end and the voice of the heart says: Now it is wintertime for you. Rest and find entrance into the Kingdom of God.
In other words, this means that you will also bring to earth the lawful principles for running a business in the Spirit of God?
Yes, I have already started this. For some time now I have been giving the next generation lessons and instructions from the voice of the heart. My brothers and sisters are learning what it means to build a positive communication, to bring about unity among the members of an enterprise and to draw up a correct concept which is based on the fact that the thoughts of the members of the enterprise are decisive for the growth or decline of an enterprise.
The voice of the heart will teach many more details through me. For example, what it means to bring healthy food and a healthy way of living to the world; how the constellations of the stars irradiate the various kinds of plants; when one should sow and plant and how the soil should be prepared; that the constellations and the elements are in communication with each seed kernel and with each species of plant; what the farmer should pay attention to; how the bakers should work and how all kinds of food should be prepared so that a person can become or remain healthy. There is still much for the prophet to do at the side of the generation that has been built up and prepared. And so, for me, the instrument of God, fall is a creative time which may give even more wisdom from the source of divine wisdom.
So this means that you are showing the people, all of us, how a founding figure - be it in a spiritual community or an enterprise or in politics - can continue to give help and instructions to the following generation by means of leadership and advice. In your case, this also means that it is the Spirit of the Christ of God which is the initiator and leader of Universelles Leben.
You speak of a "founding figure." I do not want to apply this word to myself, because the work of God is just simply the work of the heavens and is not based on a person, no matter how he is called in this world, whether a personality or founding figure. I will never call myself, as a person, the founder, because then it would be the work of man which would someday perish.
Of course, in the world, every business, political party, association or church institution has a founding figure. In the end, they all claim to be the founder as well as the person who carries the establishment in question. Often, it is so that the founder has made a position of power for himself which he doesn't want to give up because it is his work. He seldom instructs the next generation, because he lives in fear that they could dispute his position.
The rigidity of such "personalities" can under these circumstances bring about the downfall of a work, a community or an institution. I am thinking here of Martin Luther who, through his theses, certainly had wanted something else than what he demanded, practiced and passed on in his old age. This became a time of inflexibility and an uncompromising attitude on his part which was marked by disappointment and resignation. A further example is the so-called "Holy Father," the pope of the Catholic Church. This aged man is in his time of winter. Would he still be able to present himself as the spokesman of his institution if he were not built up and stimulated by physicians, surrounded and supported by cardinals?
But this is possible only when the Spirit of God is able to inspire a person and only in a community whose members are not "personality-oriented" but are all oriented to One - Christ.
The Prophet the word and its printing is free.
