than a Forerunner"
… How do you imagine the return of John the Baptist
which you describe in your book?
„John the Baptist and Jesus have to be seen as a
unity. The renewed appearance of Christ will be preceded by the return of John
the Baptist, just like 2000 years ago. He will point out the consequences to
us, of not turning away from matter back towards the true values of life. Yet,
only with difficulties will men recognize the return of the Baptist, he will be
exposed to contempt and persecution. The mode of his appearance is a difficult
topic. According to a much heeded-to prophesy he has already been born as well
as the antichrist.”
... Can >John the Baptist< become a bestseller?
would be nice. But a book in this field only becomes a bestseller when the
Church and the Vatican are being assaulted. This I do not do, and therefore the
book will probably not be tumultuous enough for the majority of readers. A
greater part of the publishers was merely interested in the second part
containing the prophesies, some few other ones only in the historic-biblical
research. But exactly the connection between then and the future is of
importance to me. Therefore I am surprised that already in October, even before
the official presentation of the book on the Frankfurt Book Fair, already 1000
copies habe been sold. There are also aready some applications for readings.”

The Book is Deeply Christian
„For me they describe the shortest way back to the root of
the Eternal and True Spirit, and to the Essence of the Message of Jesus Christ.
Let us have the courage to leave trodden paths and enter new ones.”
“The above book is a deeply Christian book. At no time did
the prophetic word dry up. Since the Prophets of the Old Testament speak again,
this helps us to give thought to what the Bible conveys to us, and to what
extent we have comprehended the biblical message.

Prophetic Messages are of Present-Day Concern, even
“Spiritual Messages“ in the “Kurteil“:
The messages of
the Baptist are as much of present-day interest as they were 2000 years ago.
Whoever takes the trouble to carefully read the Bible, will discern that the
words of the Baptist and of the prophets in the book “The Covenant of the Rose”
fit together like mosaic pebbles with the writings of the Bible, and
sometimes even are congruent. It merely is remark-able that the words of the
Bible are being accepted, whereas the words of the above book are being
doubted. I, myself, consider this book to be very valuable and recommendable.

Not only Superficially
In my opinion this book is a treasure. It presents the
life and work of John the Baptist, of Jesus Christ, and of the Prophets of the
Old Testament clearly arranged. I was deeply moved by that part in which Walo
Winberg describes the background and the significance of the return of John the
Baptist. Many clear hints point to it that John the Baptist will now bring to
an end the work he begann 2000 years ago with Jesus Christ through his
“tenant”, together with the help of the prophets. Furthermore spiritual words
of John the Baptist and of the Prophets of Israel are printed. For me they are
not only an “expectation of salvation”, but a returned “cheering news” for
today’s men, who are enslaved in materialism and self-love. I recommend this
book to everyone, who does not only think superficially about this world.”
