Jesus redeemed mankind from eternal death through his suffering and death on the cross, which exceeded every other death in pains and agonies, because his love was so great that he was prepared to bear everything for the sake of mankind, which would have to suffer throughout eternities without his work of redemption, without this sacrifice on the cross, when it wanted to atone itself for its incomprehensible great sin-guilt.

A message from Bertha Dudde follows, which describes Jesus’ work on the cross:

 

Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross. Expiation sacrifice.

21. May 1942. B.D. NR. 2342.

Jesus’ suffering and death on the cross was the greatest love sacrifice, which a man has ever offered on Earth. It was no expiation sacrifice of a guilty man; it was not deserved punishment, but a sacrifice, which was offered for the sin-guilt of other men out of deepest love for them. It was a voluntary expiation sacrifice, which was to buy out fellowmen from their well-deserved punishment. The death on the cross was unspeakable agonizing, and Jesus still chose it, because his body wanted to suffer out of over-great love to mankind. He wanted to do something, which men were not able to do; he wanted to take torment upon him to spare it fellowmen. He knew that the fate of men after death is suffering and torment as just punishment of their defection from God, i.e. of the will opposed to God, and in his love he wanted to decrease these sufferings and agonies by him wanting to impose them on himself, therefore him bearing suffering voluntarily, so that those did not have to bear it. And so he chose the most agonizing death – death on the cross and devoted these unspeakable agonies sacrificingly to his father in heaven. He brought to him the expiation sacrifice by him suffering and dying for sinful mankind. And this sacrifice was pleasing to God. Because Jesus was pure and innocent; he was without sin. He was without the slightest guilt, but he chose death, which atoned for the most severe crimes, which was unspeakable agonizing and dishonouring. He had his pure body nailed to the cross by men who were followers of Satan in their state away from God, and his soul, beside the body, suffered unimaginable agonies through this. Because his pure soul felt every sinfulness as agony; the soul, which had become love, suffered under uncharitableness – and it still took these agonies upon itself to make the fate of men more bearable through this. The sacrifice was brought in merciful love to God, and God pleasingly accepted it. The man Jesus had to completely give up his love towards the world before he could bring this sacrifice; he had to make himself free from every desire; out of free will he had to be prepared to give up everything, only then he was able for this sacrificial death. His love was so great that it aimed at fellowmen only, but not his own body. And because this over-great love made him bring such sacrifice, God accepted it. And therefore Jesus redeemed mankind from eternal death through his suffering and death on the cross, which exceeded every other death in pains and agonies, because his love was so great that he was prepared to bear everything for the sake of mankind, which would have to suffer throughout eternities without his work of redemption, without this sacrifice on the cross, when it wanted to atone itself for its incomprehensible great sin-guilt. Amen. B.D. NR. 2342.
