Livets Bog

The main work in The Third Testament is called Livets Bog (The Book of 

Life) and the danish title is used in all languages). The universe can be 

likened to a book. The universe is the “book of books”, the source of all 

knowledge. Everyone is reading it, Christians, Hindus, Muslims, Jews and 

Buddhists, scientists as well as writers and artists, yes, even plants and 

animals. We all interact with all the forces that surround us.

The purpose of “Livets Bog” is to help us read directly in the real book

- Nature. We are all born into this, there are no admission ceremonies. 

The Third Testament does not create a new religion, it teaches us to under- 

stand the speech of life itself, life’s own religion.

The aim of The Third Testament is to show how loving our neighbour and 

God is the highest science in life. God being understood as an all-embracing 

living being, synonymous with the universe. The question of eternity is 

placed under the magnifying glass and analysed in the bright light of intu- 

ition. As mankind is increasingly moving away from the stage of blind belief, 

veriiable facts are needed - also regarding life’s spiritual questions.

The Third Testament is the fulilment of Christ’s prophecies

That this knowledge should come to mankind has been predicted. In The 

New Testament we can read: “I still have many things to say to you, but 

you cannot bear them now.” (John 16:12) “The Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, 

whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will 

remind you of everything I have said to you.” (John 14:25-26) “...and I will 

ask the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor to be with you for- 

ever - the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither 

sees him nor knows him.” (John 14:16-17)

What is needed in order to be able to experience spiritual realities

In order to gain knowledge in the spiritual area it is not enough to have 

a well-developed intelligence or analytical ability, a humane disposition 

is also needed. Only when both the intellect and the humaneness have 

reached a state of maturity does the psychic transformation come about 

that makes it possible for us to experience spiritual realities.

It is this mental balance that gave Martinus, the author of The Third Tes- 

tament, an absolutely certain knowledge of those areas of life that are 

normally completely unknown.
