An upward development can only then happen when man gets in touch with the spiritual and leaves the world unnoticed. Read more:

Today we have already once dealt with the spiritual decline, which is expressed by men turning more and more to Antichrist, and this seems to happen especially in such countries, which one could call Christian countries.

Here now a message from Bertha Dudde, which clearly describes this spiritual decline:

 

Spiritual decline.

15. January 1942. B.D. NR. 2212.

Men of the present do not recognize where they drift. They live and are still dead in spirit. They find no connection with God because they do not seek him. The earthly world means everything to them, but their course of thought does not go beyond this. And that is why every day is used in vain in a spiritual sense – the upward development is called into question, even a spiritual step backwards is often noticeable, which has an enormous serious effect. And whether men are also pointed to their actual assignment on earth, they do not listen to such ideas because again the world and its demands alone seem to be important to them. And therefore their earthly walk is unsuccessful; for these men earth is not that what it is supposed to be. And God’s love and wisdom does not allow that men misuse their earth life, that they give it another purpose than God has determined, because his orders are wise and unsurpassable. But when man no longer recognizes the wisdom of God, then he also ignores his orders, and this can only lead to the downfall of that what is supposed to develop upwards. But an upward development can only then happen when man gets in touch with the spiritual and leaves the world unnoticed. But mankind is de-spirited; it hastens and chases after earthly aims; it is unable to a spiritual connection because it is not willing, because to strive for the spiritual seems to be worthless to it because it brings no success. And this is spiritual decline – this is a state which God does not look at idly, but which he tries to rectify by him shaking up men from the spiritual lethargy through events, which strongly shake the thinking of men. God has all power, and he will certainly also prove to men his power, so that they recognize him and seriously try to think about the meaning and purpose of earth life. And therefore he first takes from men that what claimed their thinking up to now – earthly goods and earthly pleasures. On the transitoriness of it they are first to recognize the worthlessness and after times of disappointment to think about the only valuable – about the relationship of man to God. He tries to awaken in them the desire for the everlasting goods, by him abandoning all that to decline, what up to now ruled their thinking. And that is the purpose of the coming events, which God must inevitably let come over men, so that they still make use of the rest of their life for the salvation of their souls, which up to now had to do without all care. Amen. B.D. NR. 2212.
