Book 55 4822

God's Plan of Salvation.

21. January 1950. B.D. NR 4822.

What is decided in my plan of salvation takes irrevocably place because my wisdom recognized the necessity of this to bring that what once had become apostate to perfection. The time for every single event is fixed since eternity because the will of the spiritual was also apparent to me since eternity so that I also recognized in what length of time a process of development is to be regarded as ended or failed, which is why always new phases of development begin when no results are getting attained. Since it is now evident to me that and when men fail, it is fixed since eternity when a new earth period begins and the old is ended. And this time will be kept because a giving up of the plan would only have a bad effect on the spiritual and my constant concern is meant for only these beings that are in great trouble due to their imperfection. The conclusion of an earth period is therefore timed and cannot be put off by human will, but human will can shape the way of the end of a development phase to a less painful one when he would be willing to submit to my will so that a destruction of the old earth would more befall the spiritual that is still bound in the creation while the man who tries to live according to my will could earn the reward for this in a painless going over to the spiritual kingdom or also in the sudden transfer onto a newly born creation. A will submitted to me does not need such strong means of upbringing and the time of the end of the earth could come up to men without a trace of fright. But that it comes men can no longer stop in spite of a possible change of will. For this is determined since eternity. Men can well shake off the belief in it but then only to their own detriment. But when man believes then he can decrease the dreads for himself even if he cannot completely avert them for the sake of the fellow human beings. But as he as an individual submits to my will he is specially protected by me and that that is completely insubordinate to me along with its lord cannot cause harm to his soul although he will be also harassed earthly. But on his own such a believing man is strong because my power flows through him and he feels safe and secure under my protection. I inform the ones that are mine about my eternal plan of salvation, I announce the near end to them, I point out its signs to them and give them the promises of my help, my presence and my coming in greatest trouble. And he who believes these my words he will survive the times of the end without his soul coming to harm, he will have no need to be worried because his faith gives him the right to my help, his faith gives him power and favour that he remains loyal to me and holds out until the end. Amen. B.D. Nr. 4822.

 

Book 55 4825

Lack of Faith and Devils of the End-Time. Faith Struggle. The Coming of the Lord.

29. January 1950. B.D. NR. 4825.

The lack of faith will have an alarming effect in the last times before the end where people will just chase after earthly profit and never think of a God. Men will cheat and try to defraud one another, for the sake of matter they will display all bad desires, they will have no scruples about to harm the neighbour when they themselves only benefit from it. They will strive for increasing their goods and all their thinking will be only aimed at it. But they forget God, they do not believe in him and do not fear him, they do not believe in a future responsibility and punishment for their sins and therefore sin without thinking and fear of a judge. Earthly things are looking good for them because they are supported by the opponent of God who urges them on to greater and greater desire for material goods. Where the belief in God is lacking there he has great power, that is why the lack of faith is exceedingly alarming for men because they walk towards their ruin. Where faith is lacking there is also no love that alone could revive faith. Where love is lacking there men are blind in spirit, they know nothing, and what they know is wrong. Darkness is spread over mankind and earth is heading for the end. From the earthly point of view there is no trouble, men live in prosperity except a few that are still firm in faith and are antagonized by those. They are destined to a hard lot for a short time but they recognize by the prosperity of the fellow human beings that are without faith the most unmistakable sign of the end because it was predicted to them so that they stand firm in this trouble that earns them the belief in God. When the time has come where Satan is ruling visibly then also the end is no longer far because also this has been announced that the world is full of devils at the end and men will also behave like devils that do not believe and therefore bitterly challenge the believers. But then also the coming of the Lord is no longer far, then any day can bring the end because the Lord will come when the trouble is so great that the believers think to lose heart - when Satan believes he has won the game, when unbelief increases so uncontrollably that the believers have to fear for their life. Then the rescuer comes from above as it has been announced. He will come in the clouds and fetch home the ones that are his into the kingdom of peace and sit in a last judgement. Then the end has come where Satan is put in fetters and with him all who were in bondage to him. And a new earth will emerge that is inhabited by only strong believing men, men that remain loyal to God in the last faith struggle and now receive their reward - a life in paradise on the new earth. Amen. B.D. NR. 4825.

 

Book 55 4836

Spiritual Death - New Banishment in Matter.

12. February 1950. B.D. NR 4836.

It is indeed better for you to endure bodily death than to go to ruin at the end by dying spiritually from which only after endless long time an awakening happens. You can exchange the bodily life for a life in the spiritual kingdom and even when you have not yet reached the degree of light you still have the possibility to enter from darkness into the kingdom of light, whereas the spiritual death means that every possibility has been taken from you to still mature in another world. To go to ruin in spiritual death means a new banishment in hard matter, a transfer back into that state that was your fate before eternities and that you had overcome long ago when you were allowed to embody yourself as man on earth. Let them take the earthly life from you and do not be afraid because it is just the body that your enemies can kill, but the soul remains alive because it is something spiritual that men cannot kill, especially when men are after your life because you believe and do not want to give up your faith. Then all fear is to fall off from you, then you are only to think that he who gave you life is Lord over life and death - that he therefore lets nothing happen than what is good for your soul. He who loses his life for the sake of his faith he can calmly give it away since his soul will be received into the kingdom of light where it will live forever in happiness. But they will be sorry that try to keep their life and disown God. A short time is still granted to them where they pay tribute to the world and prove their affiliation to Satan. But then death overtakes them twofold - they lose their bodily life and go to ruin by spiritual death, the bitterest fate that is too dreadful for men to think about. But all the time warnings and admonitions are sent to you, the end is pointed out to you, your attention is drawn to the workings of God in unusual ways. The responsibility towards your soul is held up in front of you, you are perplexed by world affairs by seeing the going to ruin of earthly goods, thus the transience of matter and you will still experience things at the end that God will set in front of you in his exceedingly great love and mercy to still change you in the last hour. But the end comes irrevocably and with it the fulfilment of what is announced to you continuously. Take care that your souls lives, do not let them get to ruin in spiritual death from which there is no salvation for endless long times. Amen. B.D. NR. 4836.

 

Book 55 4847

Proceedings at the Second Coming of Christ. Ascension.

26. February 1950. B.D. NR. 4847.

My second coming, my coming at the end of the world, will be doubted by men that do not really totally believe. And still they could recognize the individual phases of the end-times and also perceive my presence should they only be careful. I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. These words alone should already be enough that you visualize my second coming. That I am not staying bodily visible among you should therefore cause you to spiritually understand the meaning of my words. I am staying spiritually with the ones that are mine until the world's end. For I am with them at every hour and at every place and that since my ascension to heaven. Because I told you: I remain with you. Thus I always was spiritually near the ones that are mine and remain with them until the world's end. But at that time I announced to men my return, my coming in the clouds. Therefore this return had to be understood in such a way that men can see me just as my disciples saw me ascending to heaven. But spiritually I am always with you men when you prove yourself worthy of my presence. But bodily I come again, although not in the earthly body but visible to those to whom I want to return. But I have announced the return therefore you men also can definitely expect it when you believe my word and belong to those that experience the last end. Not without reason I gave this promise before my ascension into heaven. I saw the spiritual condition on men in the end-times, I also saw the enormous plight of the believers that want to keep their loyalty to me and are severely harassed and I saw their struggle, the heaviest battle that men have to fight out for the sake of my name. I saw their will and the great danger to stand firm in the midst of devils. And therefore I promised them my personal help that I also will perform when it is time. I myself want to come to the ones that are mine and give them my support in the last struggle. And so many are allowed to see me because I will always be there where the distress is great and where the ones that are mine need me. They will see me as man of flesh and blood but not born of a woman but I come from above and surround me with a form visible to you so that you can bear me. And everyone who sees me will be flooded with power and get through the last fight on earth. But then I come in the clouds to fetch home the ones that are mine into the kingdom of peace. This coming will take place exactly the same way in reverse as my ascension to heaven. Radiating in light I will come down to earth - but covered by clouds to be able to be visible to you - and gather the ones that are mine to save them from greatest tribulation and distress on the part of the demons of the underworld as well as from the last work of destruction that destroys all life in, on and above earth. But this coming in the clouds will also only be seen by those that belong to ones that are mine because the followers of my opponent are not able to see me. It is a spiritual return and still earthly perceptible but just only by those that are spiritually born again, that have a deep, living faith and therefore accept without doubt both my continuous presence until the world's end and also my visible coming again because the heart, the spark of the spirit in man, teaches them and so they therefore belong to them with whom I remain until the world's end. They believe that I come again and their faith I do not let come to naught. Amen. B.D. NR. 4847.

 

Book 55 4860

Grace.

12. March 1950. B.D. NR. 4860.

Excerpt only:

And in this time both sides will apply the strongest means. Each of the power wants to own you; the means of my opponent are worldly promises, earthly goods and bodily pleasures. But I present myself to you and my nearness lets you give up all worldliness. When I reveal myself all earthliness loses its value, your soul feels the bliss of the spiritual kingdom and never again wants to miss it.

 

Book 55 4878

Forerunner of Jesus at the End.

13. April 1950. B.D. NR. 4878.

From among you one will emerge who is to testify for me before my coming in the clouds. And when you will hear him you know that the end is nearby. He is one of the purest, he is full of love and goodness and therefore closely united with me, he is a comforter and friend for you men, a liberator from the trouble of the soul. He is of a bright spirit and knows about the judgement at the end and therefore he warns and admonishes men in my name. He is a fighter for me and my kingdom and has fullest knowledge. And so he also knows where pure truth is represented and therefore he will come from among those who receive my teaching from above, and through his life, through his love for the neighbour will also be taught from above himself because he still has to carry out his duties last to be my forerunner before my coming again. Because the time comes true, the predictions of the prophets come true, and so also he must come who descended from the kingdom of light to earth for my sake to announce me to men that are in greatest trouble and distress. He will give evidence of me because his voice is my voice and who hears him he hears me. But he will not stay long with you men - before you recognize him because he well stays among you but my opponent will persecute him and men stir up hatred against him. He will preach about love but men will listen to him in hate. They persecute him and are out to kill him. But I will know to protect him until his hour has come because he has to complete his mission, he has to pave the way for me, he has to set up the flock of the ones that are mine and instruct them of the speedy coming of the Lord. And when he appears there will be little time left. His words will arouse enthusiasm and wake from sleep the ones that are sluggish and undecided because he is just the mouthpiece of me, through him I want to express myself once again. And again he will be a voice of one crying in the wilderness, the reason he comes again is because I need a strong power, a power that comes from above to help you men. But the world will hate him and use all means to put him out of action though he only does and speaks well. But the world has sunken into night and all light has gone out. That is why a bright light lights up on earth and all light bearers will get oil so that also their light again burns brighter that the people of the world try to quench. And all who have the right kind of faith will recognize him as the forerunner of my renewed descent and they will know that the time is fulfilled, that I am to be expected and with me the last judgement. And they will take his words to heart because they feel that it is me who speaks through him and that I myself announce myself through him who is my messenger as it is determined since eternity. But he will have a hard time with men that pay tribute to the world and do not want to hear about his warnings and admonitions but who are not afraid to be out to kill him even so he proves to be helpful towards men and many also call on his help. They want to hinder him to finish his mission but not earlier do I take him to me into my kingdom until he has prepared the way for me, until he has announced my coming to all who desire to see me and whose faith he strengthens because he only voices that what he receives from me through the inner word, through the spirit that works unusually in him. Amen. B.D. NR. 4878.

 

Book 55 4897

The Kingdom of God Approaches. Appearance of the Lord.

15. May 1950. B.D. NR. 4897.

The kingdom of God approaches you, my children on earth; do acquaint yourself with all that my love reveals to you. And so you will be initiated into the knowledge of my plan from eternity, of my rule and work in the universe, of my perpetually applied means through which I want to win my creatures for me for ever. I let you gain insight into my kingdom insofar as I let you know about the activity of the blessed creatures; about the connection of all spiritual with its creator and about the great plan of redemption that underlies all what you men experience and see on earth. So you win spiritual knowledge that already makes you candidates for the spiritual kingdom whose lord I am since eternity. You can believe that my love has seized you now because my love is a ray of brightest light and light is wisdom. My love is of unimaginable power and who experiences it his soul is happy, because it feels the comfort of the light and the power even though initially the body is still uninvolved in it. But a visible sign of my inflow of love is the increasing cognition because it proves the ascent of the soul, which by its will can now transport itself from the earthly kingdom to the spiritual kingdom, which has sought me and found me because its love unites it with me. And so I can now approach you and you will recognize me when my foot again steps on earth, also in the flesh but not as once born. Because I will get in the way of a number of my people where necessity calls for it, where the ones that are mine are troubled and I want to bring help to them. My kingdom has come close to you and therefore I myself also come close to you. I always stay spiritually among you but your love can also cause me to approach you visibly and you prove to me your love that you believe in me. I know how difficult it will be made for you to believe in me and therefore I come so obviously close to you with my kingdom that you can recognize me because I want to prove your faith and also want to reward it. He who believes in me has love in him, but love is mine. And so every men is mine who lives in love and he is to be allowed to own me as I own him, and he is to be my child as I am his father. He is included in my kingdom even though his body still remains on earth and I give proof to him for this - that he can see me. Time ends and that is why you men will still experience many things that appear to be impossible - that the father comes to his children and obviously helps them and that his children will recognize him because he reveals himself to them. Because my love knows no bounds and the earthly fate of my children is difficult in the end of the days and so they need a full measure of my love that flows towards them as power and light so that they remain steadfast in the last fight on this earth and hold out until the end. Amen. B.D. NR. 4897.

 

Book 55 4899

Embodiment of light beings. Forerunner.

18. and 19. May 1950. B.D. NR. 4899.

I pass the Gospel on to earth, and as you receive it from above, it is pure and unadulterated through human will. I know that it is necessary as innumerable men cannot find me because they are no longer taught in truth. And that is why I embody myself in the spirit of those who want to serve me. That these are now supplied with the truth in purest form, is a necessity recognized long ago by my love and wisdom, which alone already will cause me to protect the receiver of truth from above against the influence of impure spirits which would like to confuse his thinking and prevent the supply of truth. Who therefore is receiver of my Gospel which I taught on earth myself and which to spread I ask now again my servants on earth, he can be in fullest assurance that he stands in truth, that he as my apostle of the end times can teach fellow men without having to fear that error could mix itself to his instructions. And in this assurance he is to have an effect on all who step in his way; he is to feel as speaker for me and always represent on my behalf that which he has received from me myself and expresses itself in him as perception, because this is the pure truth. Many light beings are at the moment embodied on earth because the great spiritual want requires extra ordinary help, which can only be done by beings of light. Such light beings are mostly spiritual leaders, i.e., they stand in close union with me through leading a life according to my will and can therefore accept my instructions directly and impart them to men. Such light beings are standing in a degree of maturity which makes a sinking into the deep impossible, which is why they also always go through earth life in greatest humility and selflessness and only seek to bring my kingdom to men, without them wanting to draw any other use than to serve me and to help men. That is why such a light being, sent by me to earth, can also embody itself several times when the spiritual low of men necessitates it. But these embodiments are then always complete services until the end because my will is predominant in these beings, because they have already voluntarily subordinated themselves to me and can also no longer lose this degree of maturity on earth. Low spirits will never have power over such being embodied as man, and it will never succumb to their bad influence. Therefore an already completed spirit can never fall on earth, i.e. not fulfil his mission. Such a mission can only seem to break off before the eyes of men through sudden recall into the spiritual kingdom or human hostile measures, which end the earthly life prematurely. But I also know about this since eternities and do not intervene with my power to not make the will of men unfree. But the work of redemption will still be finished, and everything will come so as it is determined in my eternal plan of salvation. Also the most completed spirits out of the heavens will temporarily embody themselves to achieve a spiritual ascent among men because without such help the latter are too weak to resist. And then also the dead will arise out of their graves, i.e., those completely blind in spirit can through a brightly shining streak of lightning from above become awakened and seeing. But then it will be the time before the end where my coming again is also to be expected, which was announced through seers and prophets always and constantly. And before me the greatest light on earth will shine in plainest garment. He will once again bear witness to me as he has done it before my appearance in the flesh on this earth, before my course to men to whom I wanted to bring the Gospel. He was my forerunner and will also be it again. And you men will then recognize him by his speeches, as he yet chooses the same words and testifies to me as he has done once. His spirit only comes to earth to fulfil the law, according to which he must precede me in fullest knowledge of his origin and his assignment. He sees through everything and also knows about his earthly lot, but which he does not avoid because also this belongs to the work of redemption in which he takes part out of love for the unredeemed. He knows it that only with his death the mission is fulfilled, and he has no other desire any more than the final union with me, his Lord and master, his friend and brother, his father from eternity. And the end is close when he appears because I follow him soon and make my announcement come true. But my coming again is the last act before the complete destruction of earth with all what is alive. Then comes true, as it is written. A new heaven and a new earth will arise where I will be in the middle of mine, where only one shepherd and one herd will be, because all who live are connected to me and allow my stay among them, because all men on the new earth are my children, to whom I come myself as father to give them what makes them happy. Amen. B.D. NR. 4899.

 

Book 55 4900

Work of Retaliation and Salvation. Spiritual Trouble.

20. May 1950. B.D. NR 4900.

It is a time of extreme confusion, a time of deepest spiritual darkness; a state is among men that is not at all like it should be. Men are only connected with matter and live accordingly, because they do not abide by my commandments when they can obtain earthly possessions. They let themselves control by desires that are visibly the effect from below; they no longer strive upwards but are rather turned towards the forces of the underworld from which they obtain the fulfilment of earthly desires and lusts. The spiritual want is great - so great that it has to be broken off by force so that a still deeper degeneration of men becomes impossible. This is the actual cause of the forthcoming work of destruction of the earth - to strip of the present form of the spiritual that is at the moment embodied as man and to give it a new cover where no longer a descent can take place but where an ascent has to be attained. The last end of this earth, that is simultaneously a work of retaliation as well as of salvation, is incomprehensible to him whose spiritual state eliminates a deep knowledge of my plan of salvation. But the end is - also considered as work of salvation - exceedingly important for men who experience it. Because the new banishment into hard matter is an agonizing state that I would like to save all men from to have to once again walk the course through the entire creation. What is still free will be bound again, what is powerful will be completely powerless, what can think and want freely will then have to carry out in the mandatory state what I will; there will be darkness around the beingness, for endless times, until it again climbs up to the state of free will to now again be able to decide freely. The new banishment will be an unspeakable agony for the spiritual that still walks free on this earth. Would men know about the state worthy of pity that they are approaching they certainly would change their life out of fear but that would be a change of the being under compulsion but without value for eternity. Men have to go their way out of their own will. They well can be admonished and warned, the coming judgement can be presented to them, but always in form of predictions that they can believe or not. But what now takes place at the end of this earth is unimaginable to man but it is so powerful that the intellect of man could not give himself an explanation for events that are completely adverse to nature. But it is a spectacle that can only be observed by the ones who are mine, who are awakened by my spirit, who because of that cannot come to any harm of their souls. But the rest of mankind in their horror is unable to digest intellectually the impressions because it only sees death in front of it, that is also their fate - spiritually and earthly. The greatest contrasts appear at the end of this earth - highest happiness, rejoicing and delight at my coming to earth for the ones who are mine, who just see bright light and are free of all trouble - and greatest horror, fear of death, darkness and dreadful proceedings with the undeniable prospect of complete destruction. A deadline is still fixed for you men in which you yourself can determine the outcome for you men; all the time gifts of grace are given to you through which you can become seeing, you who are willing for it. From all sides it is pointed out to you that something unusual is under way, you are reminded of the end through all kinds of phenomena; I reveal myself in many ways so that you think and get down to work on your soul; I stretch out my hands to you all the time to help you up. But I leave free will to you. Make the right kind of use of it and pay attention to the announcements of seers and prophets. Irrevocably the time comes where everything comes true. Therefore ensure that you belong to those who do not have to fear the day, for whom it will be a day of rejoicing and happiness as I have promised. Amen. B.D. NR. 4900.

 

Book 55 4905

I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.

Pentecost 28. May 1950. B.D. NR. 4905.

I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh: and servants and maidens shall prophesy. I want to call your attention to the time of the end so that these my words come true. The horn of plenty of my favour will be poured out because my spirit is revealed to all that allow it that I work in them. Upon servants and maidens I will pour out my spirit - all who are willing to serve me are to be directly taught by me, they are to hear my words and tell of the coming time. The prophecies of old seers and prophets will be repeated through seers and prophets of the latter times because also these are seeing in the spirit how it will come, they see the approaching end, the great spiritual want of mankind and they devote themselves to be for me a mouthpiece, they prepare themselves to be vessels into which my spirit can flow that they see brightly and clearly what is determined since eternity. So my spirit is working in those men. When I ascended to heaven the work was accomplished - death was conquered, darkness of the spirit was broken through, the ray of light from above could get through and my spirit could fill men that believe in me. The connection was made between heaven and earth, between the spiritual and the earthly kingdom, there was a bridge from one to the other that infallibly led to me because who allows my spirit to work has a right to my eternal fatherly love, as my child he is heir of the father. But the outpouring of the spirit is little recognized by men, it was considered to be a unique Pentecost phenomenon, a visible reinforcement of the mission of my apostles, who talked in all tongues, therefore were filled with my spirit. But the working of the spirit is not a unique matter because my promise says: He that believeth on me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. With these words I announced the outpouring of the spirit upon every man who believes in me and lives out of this faith so that it is my will. I pour out my spirit into every heart that is able and willing to receive, that has got itself ready as a vessel that is well suitable to let my spirit flow into it. Only few men have experienced this process themselves, only few men believe so much that I can directly work at and in them. And that is why mankind knows nothing about the meaning of these words, about the meaning of the outpouring of the spirit. But in the times of the end its attention is called to it by the obviously taking place of the outpouring of the spirit that is recognizable by prophetic evidence to the end, by evidence that only confirms what old seers and prophets have prophesied. Servants and maidens will be awakened, i.e. they voluntarily will offer their service to me and will now be filled by me with my spirit; they will make my work in them possible through their will that is for me and so they will be able to be active as my apostles of the end-time and announce the Gospel, the last end and my coming in the clouds. I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh. Many will be able to hear my voice when the last end is close. But for the time being there are only some that connect so closely with me that they can hear me. But to all of these a mission is assigned by me: to be active for me and my kingdom on behalf of me. These few will feel in them the calling and that is why they are not afraid to speak out what my spirit tells them - they are not afraid to announce the last judgement and to repeat the prophecies of the old seers and prophets to a certain extent. So they talk influenced by my will; their spirit sees in the future and the mouth speaks out what the spirit sees and imparts it to the soul of man. It is filled with my spirit, what is otherwise hidden is revealed to it, it foresees what comes over mankind and in its urge to help the fellow human beings it announces that what is has seen in the spirit - and servants and maidens will prophesy. Indiscriminately of gender I pour out my spirit upon all flesh because everyone who wants to serve me and consciously aims at me can be sure of the awakening of his spirit, the flowing through of my love power, and this obviously makes itself felt before the end. That what my disciples spoke of at the outpouring of the spirit that also will now be announced by the ones who are awakened by the spirit because my spirit is the same, my spirit guides you men into understanding, my spirit leads you into knowledge that you are to pass on to those that are not enlightened by my spirit. The festival of the outpouring of the spirit is not supposed to be only a recollection that my disciples spoke in foreign tongues but it is to be a continual admonition for you to also form your heart in such a way that I can pour out my spirit upon all flesh. You are also to bear in mind my promise from which you can see that not only my disciples were vessels of my spirit but that all men can do so; that all men, driven by my spirit, can speak when they truly want to be servants and maidens for me because the spiritual want of men requires serving help. To these my spirit will announce what they are to speak and these you can believe even if they announce the near judgement and therefore appear as seers and prophets to save you men from eternal ruin. Because now comes true what is written: I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh and servants and maidens will prophesy and young men will have bright dreams. I myself will appear unusually because unusual great spiritual want threatens men and because every man can experience the work of my spirit in himself who offers serving help to me, so that the great spiritual want can get redressed. Amen. B.D. NR. 4905.

 

Book 55 4906

Embodiment of Immature Beings in the End-time. (Hitler - Hausser?).

30. May 1950. B.D. NR. 4906.

Let yourself be taught by me where you are seized by doubts or where you are without knowledge because only I can inform you according to truth, what I also will do where truth is desired. I will always clear up error; I will inform you where you are ignorant; I will give you a light where it is still dark because I myself as the eternal light want to chase darkness away; I want that it is getting light inside of you, that you lose every doubt and you entrust me with every question, which I will always answer: Understand it that the world is full of immature spirit beings, which are admitted to embodiment because they themselves wanted it, to find their ending on this earth; which therefore certainly possessed that degree of maturity, which allows an embodiment as man on earth but due to their animal instinct stand completely under the influence of bad forces, the reason they can influence them is because the spiritual beings in them have not yet given up the resistance against me, which therefore consciously turn themselves downwards in total free will. They could develop upward in their earthly career because allowance is certainly made for their weak will and many means of favour are available to them, which make a way up possible but they oppose me anew and therefore sink down - they become devils and the end-time has innumerable such devils. My opponent takes special advantage of this time by trying to bring about spiritual blindness where truth is to be represented - by him therefore urging the ones that are in bondage to him to appear as representatives of truth and therefore lulls men for the time being into a false sense of security so that they blindly believe what is submitted to them. So men appear as angels of light in pious garment and they are still devils in human form - but unrecognized by fellow men because they know how to disguise themselves well and also find support through the forces of the underworld. I will not prevent men from doing what they want to do on earth and no being is forced to be good, which wants to be evil, but as also no violence can be done to the good by bad forces. But he who succumbs to bad influences he does not want it differently and must therefore be counted with those, which openly offer resistance against me because he recognizes the evil at the bottom of his soul. And because he recognizes it he often tries to disguise it, he hides behind a mask, in the garment of light he tries to blind fellow men, always driven by those spiritual forces, which still offer greatest resistance against me, which defy me and therefore fight against everything which could lead to me. During the end-time they fight with all means and not least they use my words to lead men astray. He who is in bondage to these forces, he is already on earth a devil although he hides under the cloak of piety. Now everything which is used from my side to redeem men, to not let them be smitten by the judgement, that will also be used in the opposing sense, i.e., every unusual occurrence, every unusual work for my part, will find a parallel in the negative sense. And so also the light beings which embody themselves on earth in the latter times have their partners, which are indwelled by demons, but always work in a similar way as it happens on the part of the light beings. And through this many men can be deceived, especially then when they neglect to ask me in childlike humility for clarity and instead want to check on the strength of their intellect. Then great caution is called for because the errors and the confusions are getting out of hand the more the end is approaching. My opponent has thousand traps into which he tries to lure the souls and when he fails in something he always uses new means and he wins the weak in faith and the spiritual arrogant, which have left the way of humility and therefore often stumble even if they seek the way up. That is why you men have to be especially careful during the end-times where many dangers lurk for you, where devils embodied as men give themselves the appearance of a God seeker and want to beguile you. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them, by their life that is different than their talk. My opponent has much power at the end but he never can force you into his camp as long as you head for me and my kingdom. Only protect yourself from arrogance, remain deeply humble and do not rise above the fellow human beings whom you are to help. Then also your thinking will be right, then the light of cognition will shine brightly in you and it will let you recognize every error, which the adversary wants to plant in you for his benefit. Who is mine, he recognizes his play of intrigues and he who does not recognize him has alienated himself from me through arrogance. Because he is recognizable by everyone who is of good will and longs for me as the eternal truth. Amen. B.D. NR. 4906.

 

Book 55 4912

Faithful Servant. Devils of the End-time.

7. June 1950. B.D. NR. 4912.

You are to testify to me and my working at and in you. And that is why you are to know about things that only I can explain to you; your knowledge is to surpass the earthly knowledge so that your fellow human beings can recognize me when they want to. The knowledge that is passed on from me to you can neither be proved nor given reasons for with human intellect and still I inform you of much so that you recognize me in my wisdom, love and omnipotence and bear witness to me. It therefore can only be believed and so that you learn to believe it you men have to first lead a life in love. Then you are so closely connected to me that there is nothing impossible to you because you feel myself and are no longer only earth inhabitants but spirit men that can get an insight into the spiritual kingdom. I know it what is beneficial to every man and accordingly I initiate him into knowledge; as also the assignment of the individual man is the deciding factor what knowledge he needs. But you can enrich yourself on knowledge when you ask me for it, but always spiritual motives are to prompt you to make a request of which information is important for the own development as well as for your mission. What therefore is unclear about that to you, desire insights and you will not meet with a refusal. Your mission is to teach your fellow human beings and each instruction has to testify to me, i.e. has to let me be recognized as a God of love, omnipotence and wisdom. To it understandably also belongs the correction of false doctrine and everything that makes myself out to be a distortion, what therefore lacks love, wisdom or omnipotence. That is why you are to feel free to ask for insight when you yourself get into doubts or think you do no longer understand me. And I will be glad to teach you so that it is understandable to you. To be a steward of the Lord, therefore to be a servant on earth authorized by me, requires certain conditions. Samples of will and faith have to be given through which he proves his suitability. To be a servant for me requires furthermore his initiation into my plan of salvation, so an enlightened spirit that can hear me any time. Furthermore it requires to be totally placed under my will. He is not allowed to want himself but as servant to carry out only the will of the Lord. Spiritually therefore he is my representative on earth who through submission of his will has already completely accepted my will, so as it were carries my will in himself. He must detest evil for the sake of evil, strive for the good for the sake of good, and desire truth because otherwise he does not desire me. So it is impossible that he lives against my will on earth but still is my servant. Pay attention to this that you can know by their fruits where they are from. So out of such a man's mouth can also come no truth because his thinking is blinded when my will is not respected. Then therefore also every judgement is wrong that he passes whether it is in the good or in the bad sense. Then he can never in a lifetime be my servant. The will alone is not enough for it when it is not put into action and my favour alone is also not enough when man is not letting it become effective in him through his will. A faithful servant therefore receives my instructions and he carries them out. But an unfaithful servant, once he has refused to serve me, will never again receive instructions from me - he has therefore left my service. And straightaway he is seized by the opposite force that will serve him in a similar manner however with the aim of eternal alienation from me. My opponent has great power; but never over a man who seriously aims at me. But my opponent can also disguise himself and let man think that he receives words from me but only then when he himself is arrogant; because as soon as he is deeply humble he recognizes his mistakes himself and tries to remedy them. So spiritual arrogance is a fundamental evil to which man will inevitably fall a victim. The spiritual arrogant is not able to distinguish between my working and the working of my opponent because he himself has already become a slave to the opponent who now blinds him in every way. Spiritual arrogance irrevocably separates man from me because he who is spiritually arrogant establishes an odd relationship to me, that of a superior being, that loses every respect towards the creator and is also without love towards him. And this relationship has an effect in a challenging way of speaking, in arrogant speeches, in accusations full of hatred and apparent noble-mindedness, in a lifestyle that is not according to my will, and in continued tyranny towards his fellow human beings whom he wants to control where free will alone is to decide. All these are signs of a relationship that is adverse to God that every man can recognize who himself aims at me and also remains humble towards me. Forces are active in that one, that try to assert themselves to mislead men and that do it in a different way than usual; that seemingly accept me and think they can overthrow me later on, that therefore help themselves at times of light, however illegally, but always with my permission. I will prove it to the opponent that he is not reaching the goal even by applying all means, because he acts against me. And that is why my opponent obviously is active in men of the end-times and who devotes himself to him will be able to have all powers at his disposal, exceptional talents, unusual knowledge and also remarkable strength insofar as he suggests many of his fellow human beings and they follow him in blindness. Those men are ambassadors from hell that appear just as my messengers of light in a negative sense to tempt men. They are considered at first to be acting in good faith but do not do so because the devil of arrogance is predominant in them and they want to recognize nobody above themselves which proves the origin from below as surest sign. But he who lets himself be blinded by them does not walk on the paths of love that ensures him the recognition of truth and therefore is easily endangered to become himself a slave to the insinuations of the opponent although he can apply his strength only in a limited way there where the will of man is turned towards me. Spiritual arrogance is always a danger, surely then man loses his confident feeling for truth and error because he then lacks my favour that is only part of the humble. You are not allowed to become arrogant when you do not want to fall. You must come to the father as humble as a little child so that he showers you with his favours. And that is why my servants on earth have to be my serfs in the true sense of the word and want to serve me in deepest humility, then they will always clearly recognize of what kind of spirit men are that surround them and that are in the world. Because everything is allowed for their test and about everything a right answer can give to you he who in himself is the light, truth and love. Amen. B.D. NR. 4912.

 

Book 55 4913

Retrogression never the will of God. Re-embodiment. Reverse process. New banishment. Light beings.

11. June 1950. B.D. NR. 4913.

Now a reverse process takes place, certainly implemented through my will, but determined through human will itself. It can be regarded as an act of retrogression when already as man embodied spiritual is again bound in hard matter, therefore as an act, which my will brings about, I who really only favour progressing development according to my order from eternity. But also this act has to show the same principle founded in my order. Because the spiritual is already fallen into the deep through human will, out of which I guide it again on a slow way up. Retrogression has therefore happened, however not through my but through man’s will, while my will makes the ascending development again possible and therefore now a new healing process begins after the end of this earth, a healing process, which is unspeakably painful and seems to just go on and on and still is the only means to again help the fallen up. So what my work of redemption has not achieved this process has to bring about: what was easily possible must, because not aimed at, be gained extremely hard – the redemption from form, the release of the spiritual and the awakening out of night to light. Through my death on the cross I have made it easy for men, but men did not accept my gift of favour; I have taken suffering upon my shoulders, but they rejected my help, and that is why they have to take it upon themselves and bear it endless long time. They already were high up and threw themselves deep down. And my love and mercy creates new possibilities for them to again reach up. In gigantic speed the ascent development process has again taken place backwards; after all preceding stages of development man has gone back in free will in the short earth time and arrived there again where he was before inconceivable long time – at matter for which he strives with all senses and which therefore will also be his lot. But something must always got straight that this decline was never caused by my will but human will itself, and that only now my will intervenes by stopping it and now assigns a serving purpose to hard matter, which contains this fallen spiritual, so that the spiritual again ascends up step by step, however in bound will, because it would not be possible otherwise. And thus my will is again expressed, and therefore also that, as far as I am concerned, only an ascent development is favoured, but any retrogression has human will as cause. But that is why the thought is absurd that something already matured experiences a retrogression through my will – so that a being, which has already freed itself from material cover and has entered spiritual spheres, receives again a bodily cover through my will, which at the same time takes the recalling from the being, and it has to take again a test of will – which it therefore already has passed once, but now could just as well fail in free will. For the purpose of ascent development such a soul, which already has passed the test of will, does not need a new embodiment as man, as there are many opportunities in the spiritual kingdom to become more and more perfect. But when a soul has not passed the test of will then it will be much less transferred back to earth because this transferring back would then have to take place through my will, but would now be an act against my order, because as far as I am concerned only constant progress is favoured but not stand still or retrogression. If on the other hand the act of embodiment of a soul on earth out of my will is allowed, then it does not have as its object the attainment of a neglected degree of maturity but merely the fulfilment of a mission for mankind in spiritual need, which certainly can bring in a higher degree of maturity for the being, however does not have this as such a cause. Souls which embody themselves on earth can certainly already have a certain degree of maturity when they come from other stars to reach highest maturity on earth. But for these souls it does not mean a transferring back into a stage already overcome, but which would be the case when a soul out of the spiritual kingdom, which once has already been an inhabitant of the earth, would again be transferred back to earth for the purpose of ascent development. Moreover for such a soul it could not be beneficial as recollection would be taken from it and thus could not make use of the earlier won knowledge, but would have to decide in free will exactly as at the first time, which however could also lead to a complete fall down. Who strives up also finds enough opportunities in the spiritual kingdom to reach up – who strives to earth, he is still in its spell and as far as I am concerned will never be transferred back. But who stands in the light and wants to descend to earth out of love to the unredeemed, to him this re-embodiment will be granted, but it can never ever have a sinking to the deep as a result because the soul comes from above and in spite of ignorance of its origin possesses enough power to offer resistance against all temptations on earth. For I never let a being of light fall. It will always fulfil its mission although it also always acts and lives on earth in free will. But its will is and remains turned towards me because it also has love inside of it, which recognizes and forever no longer wants to lose me. And so will that which wants up, forever be supported by me - it will, what desires the deep, not be hindered by me. But my basic principle is always the ascent development, which will also always be recognized by those who strive up. What therefore leads up is my will, but every decline the will of man who will not be infringed on by me in his freedom. Amen. B.D. NR. 4913.
