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!”
