Jakob Lorber (July 22, 1800?August 24, 1864) was a Christian mystic and visionary who referred to himself as "God's scribe". He wrote that on 15 March 1840 he began hearing an 'inner voice' from the region of his heart and thereafter transcribed what it said. By the time of his death 24 years later he had written manuscripts equivalent to 10,000 pages in print, expecting and receiving no financial reward for his work.
Lorber claimed to be unable to understand many of the things he was told by the inner voice, writing about scientific objects or concepts such as atoms, elementary particles and the tremendous energy potential in matter long before they had been invented or discovered. He wrote of an age of technology when man would invent wireless communication, fly across oceans and build iron wagons travelling faster than arrows; but also of the consequences of burning fossil fuels, of air pollution, deforestation and their potential for great devastation, causing great storms and earthquakes. He wrote that machines like living beings would perform human tasks "and thereby many human hands will become idle and the stomachs of the poor and jobless will go hungry". He also made assertions such as the Sun or Saturn being inhabited (in spiritual rather than material form). Even though only a few pages of his manuscript were published during his lifetime, he predicted that eventually it would all be published and studied throughout the world, as it is today.
Lorber seems to anticpate the internet in some of his writings, saying that his 10,000 pages of dictated script would one day, go all over the world. And it has. The wrtings are reportedly an updated version of the Bible.
Some people studying the writings of Lorber today, report internal voices emanating from their hearts. Just like Jakob.That is Gnosis. They have a youtube channel. And a friendship network.
Elisabeth Steffen in Germany, student of Jakob Lorber, became a LAY GNOSTIC by stumbling into the first video, and has lived happily ever after, with vivid dreams, nudges, independent hand tingles, like we all do, around here.
Elisabeth introuduced me to the Jakob Lorber Channel on Youtube.
And very pleasantly just supplied this very unusual song video, about GNOSIS. Enjoy
