1999.04.18 The Word of God 1 on the second Sunday after Passover, of saint apostle Thomas 2 I knock again at the gates between heaven and earth. I am the Lord! I put the man as watch- man before Me, and if I open, who is going to close? My disciples were with the doors closed after My resurrection, which made a great bustle over the rulers of Israel, and I, the resurrected Lord, opened for Myself and I stood in their midst. I came in through the closed doors, for if I open, who will be able to close them? The one, who is a door, does no longer need the door when he gets in. The One, Who is Omniscient, knows every- thing in heaven and on earth. My disciples were together eight days after My resurrection, and during this time Thomas, the apostle, came with them, and they told him: «We have seen the Lord». But he said to them, «Unless I see in His hands the marks of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe». When I heard Thomas speaking like that, I came immediately closer to appear to them. And while they were still with the doors closed, I stood into their mist and I said: «Peace to you!» Then I spoke about Thomas’ unbelief, and then I took his finger and put it into My hands, and then I took his hand and put it on My side, which was pierced by the spear, and I told him: «Do not be unbelieving, but believing!» When they saw that I knew about Thomas’ unbelief, they strength- ened themselves in the testimony of My resurrection, and John, My loved apostle, wrote then these, so that the man may believe that I am the Christ, the Son of God, and believing to have life in My name. Amen. I entered again through the gates in the garden. Oh, sons from the garden, I come in this way, and I announce Myself that I came in, as this is how I also worked with My disciples then, who were locked inside, and I stood before them for I was the entrance door. The resurrected One does not make use of those that are made by man to get in. The resurrected One did not need any man to open the grave after He came to life. I, Myself, work with the word, and the word opens to Me. I pass with word and body through locked doors, sons, and the gates do not open but to Me. Oh, it is a great wonder on the earth with you; it is such a great work that I could not make My way between heaven and earth, and to come within this time of unbelief and emptiness! There are only human roads on the earth, only emptiness. You are the wonder from the end of the man’s time, and the one from the beginning of the Lord’s coming on the earth with the peo- ple, on the earth with you, sons from the garden. If I had not enclosed this little garden by My word, and if I had not sealed this green oasis by My power, to have it and to establish you here and to establish watchmen before Me when I come, how could have been possible for Me to fulfill the Scriptures of My coming? If I come, the man should believe Me that I am. I did not force My disciples to believe Me that I was the resurrected One. Early in the morning, I stayed on the shore while they were still fishing, and I asked them for food, but they had not got any. Then I told them to have, and I commanded them to cast the net and to catch out fish and they did so, and they saw that it was I. I brought them bread because they did not have any. Then I gave them fish, for they were not able 1 2 God’s Word in „Holy Citadel New Jerusalem” monastery, Glodeni – Romania, redactor note. Translated by I.A., r.n. 1
