2011 April 13 (2)
The earth with all the splendour and all externals is given to you as bone of contention – as temptation – so that you are to test yourselves in it and learn to resist this temptation out of free will. Read more:

Two days ago we had read that all matter is life in itself:
2011 Apr 11 (2) - All matter is life in itself.

And also that also the world of matter is spiritual.

And all this spiritual is fallen spiritual.

It is on the way back to the creator.

Matter is spiritual taken captive.

It rebelled against God and he therefore made matter out of it.

Therefore all spiritual, which is in matter, is immature.

Today now I read: “Everything you see and feel holds immature spiritual in itself.”

So the whole world of matter is immature spiritual.

And this whole immature spiritual world is just that, what the Bible calls “world.”

And when we get involved in the world then we get involved in what is wrong.

Instead striving upwards, to the spiritual, we strive for what is wrong.

Here now the complete dictation from Bertha Dudde, which I read today:

 

Pleasures of the world. Receiving vessel of divine spirit.

24. October 1938. B.D. NR. 0637.

Do not let yourselves be deluded by the attractions of the world. Because you get into great danger, and the salvation of your soul is to be higher than everything in the world. When you want to serve the Lord, you must give up everything what connects you with this earth; you must put yourselves into conscious defence against the temptations of the world. The fight against this strengthens the spirit in you, and you as conqueror of matter will also become free of the violence of evil. All what you see and feel holds immature spiritual in it, which you have to resist, because the earth with all the splendour and all externals is given to you as bone of contention – as temptation – so that you are to test yourselves in it and learn to resist this temptation out of free will. Once all splendour of the world has seized hold of you then the fight is unspeakable difficult, and then it is time to use force to acquire the kingdom of heaven. Only in constant fight against temptation is it possible to lift the misery of the soul and to redeem it out of dark night. It languishes all that much in the bonds of matter surrounding it, and its desire is the freeing of it. That is why man must avoid everything what could thicken its cover – he must try to bring relief to it by willingly giving up everything what connects him with the earthly world, and turn his thoughts towards the spiritual world. Because of this it gets light and bright around the soul and its state becomes more and more free. It seeks the connection with the divine spirit slumbering in it, which can unite with the soul the freer it becomes of matter. Resistance against all worldly desire is always an inescapable condition for the awakening of the spirit in it. For the state of the soul can never improve when the body gives in to earthly desires, and therefore the soul can also never become a receiving vessel of divine spirit. The world tempts very much and is therefore a continual danger for the soul, but because man has assistants of every kind at his disposal during earth life, he is still in control to resist it. The divine creator lets no being go defencelessly and helplessly through earth life – he can acquire every protection and every help through prayer, and who makes use of this means can have every earthly temptation under control, because through prayer he partakes of all favour of the Lord and never needs to be afraid to be defencelessly at the world’s mercy. He increases his spiritual goods in the same measure as he makes use of prayer, consequently he has himself the possibility and power to pictorially separate from earth and to completely satisfy himself spiritually for it and to exchange for the soul far nicer things than the earth can ever offer the body in worldly fulfilment. And consequently man gives up nothing when he avoids the pleasures of the world, but wins unspeakably much because the pleasures of the world are not permanent – they are false and transitory – but spiritual pleasures offset all earthly things and remain in existence until all eternity. Amen. B.D. NR. 0637.

 

We just read that the soul seeks the connection with the divine spirit slumbering in it, which can unite with the soul the freer it becomes of matter.

This subject of the unification of the soul with the spirit is in detail dealt with on the following webpages:
