^ B.D. NR. 2144 Reorganization of the outer form after bodily death.

Man needs life power for carrying out every activity, therefore being active means also life. When this power is taken away from him then he is unable to transform himself or other things – he is lifeless. But the outer form still changes in itself, as soon as man has become lifeless. It dissolves, and this process lasts so long until every substance has again been taken up in a new outer form, i.e., when the spiritual has flown out of the form, then the remaining form will certainly be relieved of its former purpose, must however fulfil a new purpose – it must contribute to the increase of any new outer form. The substance dissolves to be associated with a new outer form. This process needs again longer time.


^ B.D. NR. 2310 Weakness of will – Shortcoming. Responsibility. Word.

The smallest resistance decreases the effect of the power radiation out of God, because the fullest will is necessary to be able to receive the gift of God, otherwise the supply of power would be given to the being against its will and would mean an ascent development under compulsion. Only the life-force which is necessary for the sustenance is given to every man also without his will, but for ascent development he can also leave this life-power unused, and he therefore has to first let his will become active for making use of this life-power brought to him.


^ B.D. NR. 2756 The spirit’s power.

But as long as you are only letting your intellect be active and do not take up the spirit’s power, you will hardly stand in truth because truth is and will remain my part, which can only be supplied to Earth through my spirit.


^ B.D. NR. 3133 Earthly or spiritual expression of power.

It is different with the execution of activities, which as such lie in the field of human ability and only require more or less bodily strength. These are carried out with the life power flowing towards man, which can also be increased through his willingness for those activities.



^ B.D. NR. 3370 Life power. Lack of strength. Power supply.

Life power ceases with the bodily death of man, but spiritual power remains the being’s own also in the spiritual kingdom when he has made it his own on earth. And that is why the being, which has neglected the latter on earth, relapses after its bodily death again into a state of lack of power, which is unspeakably agonizing for the being because it has known the state of power before. And nevertheless also in the spiritual kingdom it can still acquire the supply of power but then its will must strive for it – it must first submit to the divine law of love, otherwise the power cannot be imparted to it in the spiritual kingdom. But as long as it does not do this, it remains in lack of power; it is unable to activate its will; and mostly this will is also so weak that it remains completely apathetical in its powerless state in greatest agonies and unhappiness. But those beings, which stand in fullest power abundance, do not leave these beings in their misery because it pushes them to share their power with those who need such. But the power transmission can only take place when the beings fulfil the demand of God to decide to serve in love out of own impulse.


^ B.D. NR. 3933 Power influx. Receiving vessel. Opening of the heart.

My power radiation streams uninterruptedly into infinity, having an effect there, where a container is found for receiving, and every heart of man is particularly to be seen as receiving container, which is of a mind turned towards me. A thought towards me also automatically attracts my power, because I open my heart to every one of my creatures, which does not resist me.


^ B.D. NR. 4314 Body power (Life power) Increase through spiritual power.

A difference must be made between bodily and spiritual power. Former is the life power, which every man has at his disposal, even so differently, and which is a particular gift of favour in the last embodiment on earth. Man now pays attention to only the natural power and does not think about how he could increase it, but he comes to terms with it that it decreases or increases according to age or health. But at any time he can increase this life power through spiritual power, which is not supplied arbitrarily to man, but is received only after fulfilling certain preconditions. This spiritual power is at the disposal of man unmeasured, but must be requested, therefore asked. But this can only happen in faith that it is both possible as also secure through God’s love, and a prayer never gets through to him in vain. Only then man requests the spiritual power the right way, and he will be able to have it at his disposal unlimitedly.


^ B.D. NR. 4674 Love epitome of divinity. Wrong love.

Love, which turns towards earthly things, which is therefore still to be seen as matter, is not power giving, but power robbing, and as man has no supply of spiritual power, he uses the life power, to gain that, what his wrongly directed love desires. He therefore wins nothing, but loses, because that, what he gains for himself, is passing and he loses the immortal values, which he is to create with his life power.


^ B.D. NR. 5269 Life Power - Spirit Power.

But you then do not take possession of worldly goods but I then bless every worldly beginning that you undertake but I bless you spiritually as well, i.e. through close unity with me I can supply you with spiritual power that is far more valuable than your life power because to work with spiritual power will always be successful even when not always recognized by you.


^ B.D. NR. 5318 Trouble of the souls in the hereafter. Intercession – Change of will.

The souls in the hereafter know that men on earth are still in the possession of life power, which they lack completely, and for that reason they surround these men to get power from them. They indeed do not know, in which form power is sent to them, but they ask men exactly for that, what they lack, what they do not have, but can perceive with men. Their great trouble drives them again and again to men on earth, although they often have just a weak remembrance of the knowledge, which they possessed on earth. For that reason the instruction of these beings is not easy, because their weak ability to think must be taking into account and according to their debt, their state of maturity they lack all cognition. Nevertheless they are hungry for enlightenment, and they are patient listeners, when explanations are given to them. There is a great trouble in the otherworldly kingdom, but which can be alleviated by you men, when you are prepared to help them, when you take pity on these souls and your will to help is stimulated. For loving thoughts from you they really feel as a noticeable supply of power, and they will for that reason also never leave a man, who helps them in that way, that he remembers them lovingly and asks for help with Jesus Christ for these poor souls.


^ B.D. NR. 5406 God’s unfathomable nature can only be grasped through love.

You still lack this creative love power. And nevertheless it is in you, i.e., you as my creatures are also beings of the same substance, but which still rests hidden in you, as long as a thick opposing cover hinders it, busying itself creatively. The power of love is in you, but does not appear outwardly, because you yourselves, i.e. your will must pave the way for it – because you are to use your life power to accomplish acts, which correspond with your actual nature – to perform works of love and to so therefore develop the power in you.


^ B.D. NR. 5434 Remain in love, then you remain in God.

As long as you live on earth you can yourselves increase the degree of love, for you do not lack life power, which you are to use for work in love.

Use it well, i.e., do only good, do not waste your life power for evil acts, or do not let it lie fallow through idleness, for in future you will bitterly regret it not having used it for right doing pleasing to God.
