Men are not allowed to disregard spiritual feeding because it is the most important in life on Earth that the bread of heaven is supplied to you for food of your souls. Read more:

We are to first seek the kingdom of God says the Bible. This is an important thing. This request is probably one of the things which the man-made churches violate most. The reason being that they are actually worldly minded. Matter, and striving for material things, it is what actually prevents them from spiritual life. Jesus summarizes this attitude with one word: mammon. And he says we cannot serve God and mammon. So when we serve mammon, we do not serve God, and therefore we have moved into opposition to God. We are then carnal, and not spiritual.

A carnal Christian is someone who strives for carnal aims, and not for spiritual. Instead of boasting about God, he boasts about a man, or several men, a denomination. The third chapter of first Corinthians is the crux message, which lets us understand the existence of denominations. It is about that members of such denominations, of such man-made churches, refer to men instead of God. One says I am for Paul, another is for Apollo, a third for Cephas, a fourth for Luther, a fifth for Calvin, a sixth for Zwingli, a seventh for Wesley. They refer to men and not to God. They refer to churches, which were started by men and therefore they do not refer to that church, which was created by God, the true church. They do away with God.

It starts with boasting about a single man. We can often hear that when Christians talk about a Christian leader. Then the good qualities of one are emphasized and one gives to understand, which man he particularly gives a good reputation. It is a behaviour of which most Christians are not aware of and that is not recognized in its consequences. It is the reason for sectarianism. It is the start of being orientated towards denominationalism. It is the start of dividing the body of the Lord.

It is about being carnal. And with that, one is not spiritual.

The wording of Mathew 6:31-34:

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

The crux of the passage is that when we seek the kingdom of God, then it is not necessary that we seek worldly things because they will turn out by themselves.

When we simply do the worldly things that turn out every day, then that is enough. There is no need to worry about other things because when we seek the kingdom of God first, then God takes care of the rest and we can save that effort. And when we do not save that effort then we have a serious problem and that is that we express with this that we do not trust God, that we do not put our trust in God, that we do not really believe that he cares about us and that we do not have to do this.

We simply do the worldly stuff that crops up every day. And we do it and accompany every step with the thought towards God and particularly by asking for God’s help with every act.

It is about letting one’s thought again and again turning back to God.

This walk with God makes worrying about worldly things unnecessary.

I may plan something in advance. I may think through the course of events of a task lying ahead of me in all its details and imagine them. I can imagine what I am going to do when things do not work out as I have imagined them. I therefore can consider plan B. And that might be okay to do because then I do not need to be disappointed or even angry when something does not go as I have imagined it to go. But there is a decisive difference between planning and worrying. Planning is okay. But to worry is always a sin because it expresses the non-existence of faith in God. It is a non-existence of trust that God will not abandon me, that whatever might happen, will be the right thing, because we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28.

Now follows a message by Bertha Dudde:

 

Bread of heaven food of the soul. Seek ye first the kingdom of God.

8. June 1942. B.D. NR. 2362.

Men are not allowed to disregard spiritual feeding because it is the most important in life on Earth that the bread of heaven is supplied to you for food of your souls. The physical body cannot exist without food, likewise also the soul, but it needs food still more urgently because it is immortal and the lack of spiritual food has an effect in an inconceivable agonizing state, which is far worse than the passing. Every building-up substance for the maintenance of the body it supplied to it through earthly food, and even so the maintaining of it has only one purpose, to grant a stay for the soul, so that it can fulfil its purpose. But to be able to fulfil it, the soul has to be supplied with food , which gives it power, and this food is the bread of heaven, the word of God, which God’s love offers it as food for the way on its walk through the valley of the Earth. And no soul, which desires such, will need to be hungry and thirsty. Myriads of God serving beings hand out the divine gift, the bread of heaven, to men on Earth. Everywhere on the way of the Earth walker they stand and offer it to the hungry and thirsty, so that they refresh themselves and can continue their way strengthened. And the bread of heaven is the word of God – it is the delicious gift of favour, which God has ready for you men, and you will become aware of its power when you are in big trouble. As a fresh drink refreshes you so the divine word will refresh and strengthen you always because that is the promise of Jesus that he who drinks of the water, which he offers to men, will never be thirsty for ever. And his word is truth. God himself is the source out of which the living water rises. God himself is the bread of life, which he offers to you as food for the soul so that you receive it and refresh yourselves. And that is why spiritual food is to be desired first. Earthly food is then supplied to you at the same time because God does not let you starve bodily, you who first think of the soul, what he also has promised with the words: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, everything else shall be added unto you. You never need to be afraid about your bodily wellbeing; you also do not need to worry in which form you are supplied with food when this seems not to be possible earthly. God’s word is truth and when you believe this his promise gets fulfilled. He will always give you, spiritually and bodily, when you unite with him and want to receive his gifts. But you must first desire the spiritual food because your soul needs this on its way up, and for the sake of your soul God has given you Earth life, which also necessitates earthly food. Therefore God will truly give what you need for the keep of the body when you strive to maintain the body for the sake of your soul. And the spiritual food, the word of God, will also be able to preserve the body, because this is power out of God, which flows towards man directly through his word, and this power preserves everything; it also preserves the body, when food is taken away from it. Because it is the power of God, which preserves every work of creation, which has been produced out of this power. So when man receives the direct power radiation then he will also have no need for other food and still be able to exist when it is the will of God. And in the coming time it will be the will of God that the power of the divine word will be revealed through unusual phenomena, which flow towards those who believe firmly and unshakeably and keep God’s commandments. Because when man is willing to first consider his soul, and desires for it the bread of heaven, then he will be satisfied spiritually and bodily because God’s love is unchangeable and his word is truth: Do not worry what you will eat and drink, but seek ye first the kingdom of God and everything else will fall to you. Amen. B.D. NR. 2362.
