2011 February 8
In the excitement of man immediately ill-disposed powers seize hold of this and try to fan the flames of all hate and of all bitterness to throw the soul of man as far as possible off the previous course. Read more:

Today I read a message from Bertha Dudde and today I then also immediately experienced an appropriate example to this subject and therefore I then also experienced this message in its practical effect.

It is about to only always remain aware of this state of the soul, which causes it pain and suffering.

So it is again about having the spiritual side of life in front of our eyes, therefore about not to fix our eyes on what is seen, but on what is unseen: Because we live by faith, not by sight.

And now comes the crucial passage of today’s message:

“In the excitement of man immediately ill-disposed powers seize hold of this and try to fan the flames of all hate and of all bitterness to throw the soul of man as far as possible off the previous course.”

And then follows immediately the solution:

“And only prayer for help out of these temptations weakens their power.”

So also here it is again about to then again immediately turning ones thought towards God.

And the whole is a practising which serves to prepare ourselves:

“Every minute of your life is to serve to snatch yourselves away from the violence of these powers by practising all the time gentleness, humility and patience.”

And then comes what happens when this is not done, when we do not immediately turn towards God:

“But who lets his passion take its free course does not pay attention to this. He just has to fight again to find back the former state, in which he will also succeed by good will, but still has just only earned the soul a step backwards.”

And then comes the advice what has to be done to prevent this passionate behaviour:

“Therefore first try to get rid of all violence – to head off in all gentleness the temptations which approach you and to escape from them in this way – because how small are often the causes for great aberations of the soul.”

And now to what I read today:

 

Passions.

31. May 1938. B.D. NR. 0443.

The passions of men often bring about such a strong spoiling of the soul that again days pass until it has freed itself from the effects of this, and then a wrestling for strength is the fate of this soul. Do not forget, you men on earth, that you can considerably contribute to move in commensurateness of your feelings, when only you always remain aware of this state of the soul, which causes it pain and suffering. In the excitement of man immediately ill-disposed powers seize hold of this and try to fan the flames of all hate and of all bitterness to throw the soul of man as far as possible off the previous course. And only prayer for help out of these temptations weakens their power. Every minute of your life is to serve to snatch yourselves away from the violence of these powers by practising all the time gentleness, humility and patience. But who lets his passion take its free course does not pay attention to this. He just has to fight again to find back the former state, in which he will also succeed by good will, but still has just only earned the soul a step backwards. Therefore first try to get rid of all violence – to head off in all gentleness the temptations which approach you and to escape from them in this way – because how small are often the causes for great aberations of the soul.
To every earthly power the strength is given to use its own discretion – when now its acting is not good and wise then it will have to answer itself once, but you, who are under this power, observe everything well – then still a blessing will be yours in such situations, and you will also be able to handle what is demanded when you ask the Lord for the necessary strength. Because divinity cares for you all the time and intervenes there helpingly where you ask for help. Earthly law must remain a guideline as long as it does not offend against the commandments of God and the complete divine order. Because then the Lord himself intervenes to judge and raise all who err. The voice of the Lord is penetrating and makes itself felt when it is time, but you, who walk on earth, keep to the commandments of God, and it will be easy for you to fulfil everything and to comply with what earthly is demanded of you. B.D. NR. 0443.
