Jakob Lorber biography On 15th March, 1840, Jakob Lorber, a musician living in Graz, Austria, had an experience that shook him deeply. Early in the morning, he heard a voice that came from the region of his heart. He clearly heard the command: "Take up your pen and write!" The call he received that day was to give a new direction to his life. It had been his intention on this memorable day to write and accept the position of assistant musical-director offered him at a theatre in Trieste, a position he thought he might hold for the rest of his life. Yet, when he had written down all he had heard with his Inner Ear in the course of that day, it had become clear to him that he had been given a most extraordinary mission from the world beyond, a mission he would not be able to fulfill if he also tried to meet the obligations of the position offered in Trieste. Lorber therefore let this excellent opportunity go, foregoing all the expectations connected with it, and he also forewent the joys of marriage. He met his simple needs, always living in a single room, from the poor fees earned as a piano teacher. He went through life without ever really coming into the public eye.
From that first day onwards, he would spend several hours each day writing down what the Voice dictated. The pile of manuscripts grew and grew over the next twenty-four years. When the work was published after his death, it amounted to more than 10,000 printed pages. During the final stage of his life Lorber was ill and had to dictate what he heard to friends.
The extensive manuscripts left by Lorber show no corrections or revisions. There was no need for these, for what he wrote was not the product of his own mind. Anyone reading his writings concerning atoms and elementary particles, or palaeontological details relating to early and prehistoric man, could not possibly think that all this was the product of his own brain. No one was in the least able, in those days, to make anything like the amazingly accurate statements concerning scientific details that modern science only established during the '50s and '60s of the last century. Anyone approaching Jakob Lorber's statements relating to science without prejudice will have to admit that this is a case of genuine prophesy. To reject this witness would be to reject all human witness.
But today as ever, the gospel words no doubt still hold true for many: ". . . neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead." (Luke 16, 31).
For those who forever will deny, no message of salvation will have been dictated to Lorber for twenty-four years, nor will this book have been written for them. "Where pure intellect reigns supreme, no path can lead to the manger, to the cross and to resurrection".
Those, however, whose desire for truth is unshakable, will find that the true nature of this revelation will not be denied.
From the brief biography written by von Leitner we know that Lorber was a simple, uncomplicated, harmless person. He came from farming stock, and his family had lived in Kanischa, a small village in the wine-growing area along the river Drau, close to Marburg, a town in Lower Styria, today called Maribor and part of Slovenia. This is where Jakob Lorber was born on 22nd July 1800. He went to a teachers training college and first of all became a village teacher, interrupting this activity, however, to attend Grammar school for five years and then a course for secondary school teachers. He did well, receiving a good certificate, but was unable to get a post at a secondary school right away. It was probably this which decided him to change his profession, making use of his musical talent. Having gone through training, he played as a soloist in concerts, and also reported on opera and concert performances for provincial papers. His acquaintance with the world-famous virtuose violinist Paganini - he also took lessons from him - to improve his skills - clearly enhanced his reputation and he did give a concert as a violinist at the famous La Scala Opera House in Milan. To the end of his life, he also maintained a close friendship with the director of the Styrian Music Society, Anselm Huettenbrenner, and his brother, Andreas Huettenbrenner, who was mayor of Graz. Anselm Huettenbrenner on his part was a friend of Franz Schubert. It was no doubt due to Huettenbrenner's reputation and connections that Lorber was offered the position of assistant musical director by the theater in Trieste in 1840. As already stated, Lorber let this opportunity go, as he felt that the mission the voice had given him on 15th March 1840, was not compatible with the obligations of such a position. He decided on a life of independence and retirement, where material profits would be few. From that time on, his outside work was limited to giving music lessons to children in Graz. His only diversions were the evenings when he met his friends for a talk and a drink. As von Leitner writes, he was a poor man, but generous as far as his means permitted. During the final years of his life his physical condition deteriorated steadily and his financial position became precarious, so that his friends had to take care of his most urgent needs. Over a period of 24 years, he had written down manuscript equivalent to 10,000 pages in print, expecting and receiving no financial reward.
The Inner Voice had told Lorber that there would come a time when everything he had written down would be put in print and at the given time also made known to mankind. Only a few pages were actually printed while he was still alive, and published without reference to his name.
Lorber was unable to understand many of the things he was told, and there would not have been anyone at the time who could have explained to him the statements made relating to atoms, elementary particles, etc. Yet he was wholly confident that everything would be seen to have meaning, and that later generations would certainly understand and be amazed to learn what had been written down.
In little more than two decades, Jakob Lorber put to paper a monumental body of work that permits deep insights into the creation and into God's plan for salvation and, furthermore, provides additions to the gospels that are highly illuminating. Yet he himself remained totally in the background. As Joachim of Fiore said, all great things arise in solitude. There was just one occasion, it seems, when news of his activities had reached people outside his circle, for he received warning that the police intended to search the house. His friends removed the manuscripts from his room, to keep them safe. However, the search never took place, and until his death no one bothered about him. For many years - continuing after his death - the manuscripts were kept in a secret place, until they could be published. It proved impossible to publish them in Austria in those days, and they subsequently appeared in Germany. It was not until 1877 that all volumes - except for two - had been printed.
