Talents. Pound. Responsibility. Light beings.

9. September 1953. B.D. NR. 5765.

A busy activity is dedicated in the spiritual world to the inhabitants of the earth, for the beings of light recognize the state of trouble of men in the last time before the end, and they helpingly intervene, where their help is just possible through the will of man. In this time also many light beings have descended to earth, to be able to accomplish their work of help in a fleshly cover - but as also innumerable light beings constantly stand in contact with the earth and its inhabitants and they therefore work together at the redemption of erroneous souls before the end. But the effect of all light beings, whether spiritual or embodied as man, will always only concern the spiritual life, the spiritual development of men, therefore a light being can occupy itself only in a spiritual mission on earth, for it took over this assignment with full will, when it declared itself willing to the engendering on this earth, and it is, since man now lacks the remembering back, always and constantly directed by the beings of the spiritual kingdom and the human in it is prepared for this assignment, for it does not resist the spiritual influence; it willingly lets itself be led and now also complies with its mission, which it has undertaken. Such a man is therefore in a certain respect enabled for it; he has qualities and gifts at his disposal, which make him suitable for this assignment; his soul possesses a spiritual maturity and also the talent, to recognize and grasp everything easier. It has therefore talents - and as a result of this also a great responsibility, to use these talents right. And their assignment exists exactly in that respect, to awaken also in fellowman the talents it owns. What man cannot show of himself, he can however acquire, when he receives the right instructions for it. Each one man is able to request the spirit out of God, when his attention is drawn to it that God gives him his spirit. Each one man can ask for enlightenment through the spirit, when God is presented to him by a component side so that he recognizes him as a God of love, who always fulfils such a request. What man does not do of himself, because he does not know it, that he can do, when he is instructed right about it. Therefore also he can increase his small talents, when he wants it. But this will is free. He can leave his talents undeveloped; he cannot use them at all, and he can develop them indefinitely - when he just keeps to that, what he has been advised by those, who have experience in it. But these demand nothing unusual, for they first of all give the safe working means - to practise love, because then man comes inevitably into the possession of power and - because this power is out of God - it must have a building up effect. Every man can practise love, consequently also develop his talents, and whether he does it and to which extent, accordingly God will judge him according to his talents - according to the pound, which has been given to him that he may increase it, what is possible for every man, when he does not close himself to the stimulations and instructions of those, who have received the office from above - who have taken it over voluntarily in the cognition of the spiritual darkness on earth, which constantly increases, the more the end approaches.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5765.

Spiritual leaders on earth. Jesus Christ.

14. June 1955. B.D. NR. 6284.

Men need leaders on earth, for to find and go the right way alone, for it they lack the power of cognition; they are still blind in the spirit; their eyes do not recognize the way upwards, and therefore they would often go wrong despite their will to reach the right aim. For the depth exerts a greater attraction, to which they would also become a slave without help. I therefore associate leaders to them, to whom they can entrust themselves, but are not forced to follow them. These leaders know the right way exactly, because they come from above and would like to lead everything there, where it is light, where they themselves come from. They themselves are full of light, but do not know in earth life, that they come from the kingdom of light, for everything, what is man on earth, is also subordinate to the same law. They lack all remembering back, so that they remain completely free in the decision of their will - so also these leaders associated to men by me, who only distinguish themselves insofar from their fellowmen, that their whole striving is meant for the reaching of a degree of maturity on earth, while fellowmen have turned their striving towards the world and must now first be directed towards another aim. What the former seems to lie in their nature, must first be slowly bred into the others. And it is difficult both for the leader, to move fellowman to something, what is less desirable to him, as also for this man himself, to turn away from this desirable for him and to strive for goods completely unknown to him. But exactly this is the actual earth life test, which man has to pass, and that it can be passed, that does not need to be doubted, because I only demand that from you, what can be met. But at the instigation of my opponent everywhere, i.e. at all way crossings, leaders will offer themselves to the ignorant, because it is his aim, to hide the right way from men, that they go past it and strive towards there, where leaders "knowledgeable of the way" offer themselves but who are completely unsuitable to the leading upwards, because they themselves do not know the way. For that reason you men must now be on your guard and examine before each one wanting to lead you, whether he himself strives for the right aim. You certainly can do that, for a right leader must lead you past the cross of Golgotha he must first lead you to the cross, that under it you hand yourselves over to him, who has died for you on the cross. Out of the mouth of your leader you must hear of the significance of the work of redemption; through him you must learn to recognize the extreme great love and mercy of the divine redeemer, and you must now also recognize, who he was, who died for you the death of a criminal, and why he has done it. A real leader will be able to supply you this knowledge, and you are allowed to also follow him unconcerned. But a leader ignorant of the way leads you past Golgotha; he perhaps mentions so in passing the work of the man Jesus, to by this means awaken faith in his right to be allowed to lead you - but you will gain no real enlightenment about the significance of the work of redemption; you will certainly often hear the name "Jesus Christ" out of his mouth, but not differently, as if he has only been a historical person, whose life and teaching certainly had an ethical value. The deeper connections, however, are foreign to those leaders. And on it you can carry out the examination, which is the right way and which leader you are allowed to follow trustingly. For the way to the aim leads past Golgotha, and there is no other way upwards. But the divine redeemer himself sends the right leaders towards you, and who are not sent by him, are also no right leaders. And so you will also be able to judge, which one is the right teaching: only that, which puts the work of redemption of Christ first. Only he can think standing in truth, who, as himself redeemed through the blood of Jesus, is flowed through by his spirit and who for that reason is authorized and qualified to the leading of his fellowmen, because he knows it, that men must before hand themselves over to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ, before they can continue their way, which leads up to the height, towards me myself, I who as man Jesus have died on the cross, to redeem you men.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6284.
