Earthly prosperity, honour and fame are the aims of men, spiritual aims they do not know, and they also do not feel the sense of dreariness and emptiness in their hearts because these are completely filled with earthly thoughts and earthly plans.

2010 May 7
Do not be misled in your thoughts that you believe the earth can still count on a long existence in view of the many fulfilments of human plans, which mean worldly progress and high standard of living. Read more:
Today, on the 7th of May 2010, I read the following prophecy by Bertha Dudde which quite well describes our present materialistic attitude and the consequences resulting from it and the way out of it.
So here follows this prophecy:
Earthly flourishing. Speedy decline.
28. June 1963. B.D. NR. 8542.
Worldly seen you will be able to observe a constant flourishing because men over keenly strive for earthly improvements and earthly prosperity; their whole thought and wish concentrates on earthly things, and it seems they subdue everything to improve their living conditions. And still it is a constant decline spiritually seen because more and more they strive to get away from God, they lose faith in him and therefore also all union with him, and that means that the opponent of God takes complete possession of them, that he has the greatest success with such worldly men who only pay attention to his kingdom and as a result are in bondage to him. Earthly prosperity, honour and fame are the aims of men, spiritual aims they do not know, and they also do not feel the sense of dreariness and emptiness in their hearts because these are completely filled with earthly thoughts and earthly plans. And only rarely the former thinking can be shaken or changed by experiences - only rarely men tire of their earthly hustle and bustle and seek another goal which they support. Then fate has to hit them hard, and men's thinking has to be directed differently by force - when they are unable themselves to ward off such fate, and they now have to fight themselves. Then the possibility exists that they think about the futility of their earthly life - that they now also recognize a power above them, which is stronger than their will of life and also lets men recognize their own weakness. But every hard stroke of fate is only a means to shake up men out of the calm of their earthly existence. It is a means which I make use of to create a change of mentality which is certainly then possible when they have to recognize the futility of earthly striving through suffering or sickness or other difficult experiences and then begin to think about the own faultiness and weakness, to get such blows under control - when they have to recognize that they depend on a higher power. Only then their thinking can change and then also their striving be meant for a different goal than before. And it will always be only some who turn back on their path through life, who are able to break away from the world and its goods and then also no longer be put off by the worldly flourishing and successes. But the worldly successes will be more and more astonishing because that is a sign of the end that always greater plans will be pursued and carried out, which however also always deviate more from that, which God demands of men and which has value for eternity. Where earthly matter takes priority there the opponent of God is also involved because those men already belong to him who only chase matter and always only carry out plans for the improvement of their prosperity. And these men will also willingly serve him; they will interlock with matter more and more and so also determine their future fate themselves. For even if you men see around you a continual flourishing and continual progress - only a short time you will be able to still enjoy it because soon it all falls prey to destruction, and you lose all goods, which you had earthly acquired - because God himself wants to prove to you the transitoriness of all that, what your thoughts occupy and is actually completely worthless. That is why you should not be deceived, you who are already on the right way. Do not be misled in your thoughts that you believe the earth can still count on a long existence in view of the many fulfilments of human plans, which mean worldly progress and high standard of living. Everything goes the way of all flesh; it will find its end faster than you think, and men will get into living conditions, which you cannot imagine. For a divine intervention will create a complete change through the elements, with which men now have to face up to and can do so only when they are so closely united with God and request power for themselves, which will then also certainly be given to them and all those will certainly be helped, who find and go the way to him. Only then will men recognize how transient earthly matter is, and happy is he who draws the right conclusions from this recognition, who is able to break away from all earthly things himself and now tries to only find spiritual goods. He will always be able to expect the blessing and the support of God himself; he will be devoted to him and be guided through all misery. Amen. B.D. NR. 8542.
