The world with everything adhering to it disturbs the inward connection with the pure spiritual givers of divine truth.

But the adversary will again and again turn the thoughts of man towards the world. Often he will also appear as angel of light, but you will be able to recognize him because he does not encourage to the turning away from the world, but will again and again give the world special emphasis, so that men become slaves to him who are not totally united with me.

Here we therefore have a special characteristic of the opponent of God; he does not turn away from the world. And he does it by often appearing as angel of light. He appears as representative of God. And the most frequent mask he puts on is the mask as the leader of a Christian assembly; he appears as priest, he appears as pastor; he is the typical representative of a denomination, a sect.

When Christians has grown up in a so-called Christian church then this not turning away from the world is a matter of course. He is not at all aware of this situation. A quite good thirst for truth is required to find out about this. It is a characteristic that all denominations have in common; they do not prompt the turning away from the world. And that alone is already enough to keep all their little sheep imprisoned in darkness. This omission alone is already enough to fully serve the opponent of God.

Men become slaves to the opponent of God by him again and again moving the world into the foreground, and who then is not quite firmly connected to God, he has become a slave to the opponent of God.

It is about thoughts. It is about turning the thoughts again and again towards the world. All spiritual is never really dealt with but always described as something mystical, which is unexplainable and of which one can actually not speak and explain.

All denominations have this in common. Especially with some modern denominations this is a speciality. The turning towards the world. Towards worldly things. Towards the things of the world. The Bible calls it mammon. And because they serve mammon they cannot serve God. It is the preaching of affluence, of worldly affluence.

The targets of the opponent of God are thoughts. When they are directed towards mammon then this is all he needs so that men become slaves to him.

Here a message coming from Bertha Dudde which I read today:

 

Emerging of thoughts. Ability to take in.

28. July 1940. B.D. NR. 1543.

Out of the fullness of thoughts always that thought rises up to the surface which adapts itself to the will of man Ė i.e., the will itself is cause into which path the thinking of man moves. The human brain is full of impressions; all seek to get through to the awareness of man, however the will decides for a certain thought, and this is now developed further or also turned down, it all depends on how the manís spirit gets in touch with Godís spirit provided that spiritual results are striven for. This is not at all to be understood that man could have only such thoughts as he strives for as just man. Also the spirit out of God can now be active by him also letting the outer impressions have an effect on man, so that each of the upcoming thoughts can be important provided man strives for spiritual knowledge and therefore desires enlightenment. While with an earthly minded man only the thinking apparatus as such comes into operation, therefore the answering of the question asked is irrelevant because they do not serve the spiritual support of the man. So every question can be asked spiritually and therefore also answered spiritually, as well as the same question can also be answered purely earthly. And so the source from which wisdom can be imparted to man is inexhaustible because the spirit out of God will always and permanently distribute such because divine wisdom is unlimited. It only depends on how far the human soul has formed itself to be able to take in what the spirit has imparted to it. It must have put itself into a state that it feels the finest vibrations of the spirit and hears the slightest sounding of the voice of the heart in itself. The spirit out of God always wants to give and teach but the reception devices are not always adjusted so carefully that they hear the slightest vibrations. Man must close his ear willingly to the world; he is not allowed to give space to any earthly thought in himself; he is not allowed to let in any foreign thing as disruption but he must only and alone pay attention to those movements in himself which are caused spiritually therefore want to be imparted by the spirit in man to the soul. At first this voice in the heart of man is not easily understood and requires greatest attention and switching off of all earthly thought. But man can extremely easily acquire the effortless receipt of spiritual messages when he endeavours to switch off all earthly thinking and desires to be taught by the divine spirit only. The world with everything adhering to it disturbs the inward connection with the pure spiritual givers of divine truth, therefore the receipt will always be difficult or be completely cut off as long as earthly problems still affect man and these cannot be completely switched off at the time when a conveying of spiritual goods is to take place. It is of very special importance that all incentives of the world must be avoided when the soul is to be spiritually furthered and man is to increase his knowledge about spiritual truths because every earthly distraction is in the way because it makes the soul of man unable to hear the spiritual voice, and the divine wisdom cannot be imparted to man another way so that it is received undoubtedly. And that is why the separation from the world must have taken place completely when the earth child wants to gain an insight into the miracles of divine creation which will otherwise remain withheld from him according to the wise resolution of the Lord. Amen. B.D. NR. 1543.

 

Man must close his ear willingly to the world we just read and that means not to be a sympathetic listener to the opponent of God. The opponent of God wants to prevent us from doing this and he wants that our thinking is occupied with the world.

Here a part of a further message by Bertha Dudde:

 

Adversary Under the Mask of an Angel of Light.

9. April 1962. B.D. NR. 8146.

Excerpt only:

But the adversary will again and again turn the thoughts of man towards the world. Often he will also appear as angel of light, but you will be able to recognize him because he does not encourage to the turning away from the world, but will again and again give the world special emphasis, so that men become slaves to him who are not totally united with me. The confusion will be great among men because as long as still the smallest desire for the world clings to man, my address will not be understandable, he will not be able to hear it himself, and when my word is brought to him then he does not recognize it as my word and rather turns to him who creates this spiritual confusion. And my word has no effect, although great power is inherent in it, which however is not allowed to meet resistance, when man is to attain a blessing for his soul. 8146.

 

So when we have Christian assemblies in which the turning away from the world is not encouraged then we know that there the opponent of God appears as angel of light.
