"Simon Judah said to Me: "Lord and Master, now that we split into 2 groups, must not each group have a leader?"
I said: "When did pure love and the full, clear truth from the Heavens ever need a leader? Love, as well as the truth in its highest purity and perfection is in itself the most supreme. So much so that nothing higher could be imagined or perceived above it. And if that love and truth from Me is in each one of you whom I am sending out now in My name, then who of you wants or would like to be the leader of his brother? How would you measure your leadership if you say and deeply believe that only I am the Lord while also all the others say and believe exactly the same thing? If you accept and believe that, then who of you wants to be the first?
If a good counter says and proves that 3 completely the same things plus 3 completely the same things are together 6 of such completely the same things, and a second one, a third, fourth, hundredth equally good counters say and prove exactly the same, then ask yourself which one of them should be the most outstanding one, and which one of them should be chosen by the 100 equally good counters as useless leader above them, and why?
Look, I alone am the Lord. All of you are among yourselves completely equal brothers, and none of you should be more or less, for every no matter how minor leadership will stir up the satanic lust for power in the mind of the leader, and will spoil then all too soon the pure love and its resulting truth that is full of life.
This was directly and clearly demonstrated by the first kings, and is now more and clearer demonstrated in the temple in Jerusalem. However, if one of you wants absolutely to be the first of My disciples, then let him be the last and the least of them, and the helper and servant of them all. For this is the order among My angels in My Heavens.
Truly, I say to you: all those who will let themselves be called leaders, will have a hard time in the beyond, because the most difficult task in life for a haughty person – which almost every leader will ultimately become – is to humiliate his heart. Therefore, remain all completely equal brothers and let none of you ever want in the least to be more than the other. Then, from the fact that you love and respect each other as true, completely equal brothers, all people will see and know that you truly are My disciples. If you have understood this according to the full truth and have accepted it, then you can go now and act according to My will."
When the disciples had received this clear answer from Me, they thanked Me for it and went immediately on their way."
NB: Note that implied in the above in the analogy of the counters there is an implication of competence here. For example, whilst Jesus is asserting here that everyone should look to Him for leadership in both spiritual and earthly matters, and that none should consider Himself a leader, but only a servant of the Lord, He nevertheless implies a sense of competence. For example, if someone was not very experienced with living a Christian life, then he perhaps would be best to take advice from an Apostle for example. Similiarly, one who is not an engineer would be best to listen to an engineer in engineering related matters, but an engineer himself should be asking God for guidance in his actions descisions and designs. This perhaps helps make sense of Jesus' earlier statements recorded in the GGJ, whereby he mentions the '50 captains' without which a community will suffer need and want (its is these same captains, or leaders, that are prophesised to be taken away in the End Times in the bible).
