Being Caught Up to GOD
How often was I slandered for not having the necessary studies and consequently for not being in a position to be priest, to be bishop Yet my vocation is very close to that of Paul, Prince of the Apostles. Paul was inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT! His drive was the HOLY SPIRIT. For many years he was unrestrictedly active under the direct authority of GOD without first having gone through any schools or any full powers of the Apostles.
He met Peter, the first Pope, and the Apostles only some years later. He says about himself: “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven – whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, GOD knows. – And I know that this man was caught up into Paradise – whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, GOD knows – and he heard things that cannot be told, which man may not utter.” 2 Cor. 12,2ff This again is a testimony to our vocation. Paul was caught away in order to receive the teaching directly from Heaven.
Three times I was caught away to GOD, before the TRINITY, in roaring health and in waking state, to be precise. The first time as a child, then one time as a young man and once as a bishop. Of course, people say that no one has ever seen GOD. Indeed, but the three Persons in GOD, that is a difference. I have seen JESUS, the Apostles touched Him, ate with Him, etc. And He was GOD! Just as He showed Himself in human Flesh during His earthly journey, in this same way He also showed Himself Up Above to me. I cannot explain how He showed Himself, it was simply within me. It is obvious to me that I have not seen what GOD is like, but I saw how He showed Himself to me. That is why what I teach I have not learnt from the ground staff of the Church, but I teach what GOD infuses into me. It is also evident that there are still going to be changes, complete changes in the Church, because what calls itself Church today is nothing short of an institution – or if I name it as the SAVIOUR told me: “My Church has become a cesspool!”
