And now I [Jesus] will show you also a fourth gradation of fire through which the earth, mankind, and My whole creation will be purified at the time of My Second Coming. This kind of fire will consist of various kinds of great and natural cataclysms, especially in those places on earth where mankind will have built too large and too magnificent cities. There will be present and ruling great pride, lack of love, corruption, false courts of justice, might, authority, indolence and at the same time extreme poverty and all kinds of troubles and misery brought about by the boundless pleasure-seeking and indulgence of the high and mighty. Also, in those cities a variety of factories will be established on a large scale in which, instead of human hands, fire and water combined with thousands of ingenious machines made from iron will be doing the work. For the firing, the very old earth-coal will be used which the people of that time will procure from the depths of the earth in large quantities.
When this activity has reached its peak through the power of fire, the earth’s atmosphere will in such areas be saturated with the combustible types of ether which will ignite at one point here and at another point there, and will reduce cities and regions into ruins and ashes, together with many of the inhabitants. That will then be a great and effective purification too! However, what this type of fire does not accomplish will be achieved by all kinds of great storms. This of course will happen only where it is needed, for without necessity nothing will be burned or destroyed. Through this, the earth’s atmosphere will also be liberated of its harmful vapors and evil nature-spirits, and this will have a beneficial influence on all other creatures on earth. It will also serve humanity’s physical health in that all the numerous and evil diseases of their bodies will cease and people will be able to reach a ripe old age in health and strength.
