Who was Gottfried Mayerhofer?
Gottfried Mayerhofer, who, apart from "Lebensgeheimnisse",
inspired by the inner spiritual voice, has written several other works
published by the Lorber-Verlag, Bietigheim, was born in Munich in
1807 as the descendant of a notable family. In his middle years he
entered as officer into Greek royal service, married in Athens the
daughter of a wholesale merchant and later lived in Trieste in good
circumstances. There he came into contact with the writings of the
New Revelation through Jakob Lorber and became an enthusiastic
follower of the same. Through his selfless financial help, he helped the
then publisher Johannes Busch in the publication of "The Great Gospel
of John" and other Lorber works.
At an advanced age, Gottfried Mayerhofer himself, as a diligent
disciple of the Lord, received the gift of the Inner Word. Thus through
his writing several works originated, in which many questions relating
to creation, to life, to the road to salvation and to communication with
the spiritual world etc. were discussed. The most important and most
beautiful fruit Gottfried Mayerhofer was allowed to offer mankind is
the unique collection of 53 sermons by the Lord called "The Lord's
Sermons", a work which serves many people all over the world for
their daily edification.
On Good Friday 1877, Gottfried Mayerhofer was allowed to return
to the lightful spirit-world about which he had given us so much
