And who therefore is taught by God, his knowledge will agree and will contain no deviation from each other. But these people will be found mostly outside of those who take up the right for themselves to teach. They will not belong to those who believe having acquired knowledge through study; they will be found in the ranks of those who walk their Earth way unnoticed; they will have no offices or aspire to such; they will not desire the world and its goods, but acquire the greatest favour for themselves through voluntary renunciation – to be allowed to receive the word of God and to be taught by God himself.

Today I read the following message coming to us via Bertha Dudde, which in itself is sufficient to understand why the professional clerics are so much against the work of Bertha Dudde:

 

Diffferent results. Born again of the spirit. Appointed by God.

5. July 1942. B.D. NR. 2396.

The spirit, which distributes wisdom, can only be of divine origin, and that is why this spirit can never be mistaken. Consequently everything is to be believed that has come into being through the work of the spirit, even so it is difficult to accept. It only remains to be checked whether that what was created is the work of the spirit or human product. And this can be established very easily. First it must be considered, which purpose man pursues with it that he informs fellow men about it – whether earthly advantages are to be achieved by this or the will to give merely drives him. Further it must be checked whether that what has come into being touches spiritual or earthly subjects; the way of coming into being must be observed and the attitude of the man, whose work of the spirit is to be checked, towards God. A work can never come into being purely intellectually, which is of pure spiritual content, without the help of God, therefore the work of his spirit. Because the will to solve spiritual problems already results in the work of the spirit, and when this will is turned towards God, then the man must inevitably stand in right thinking, i.e. accept the thought material from the spiritual world, which flows towards him from the spirit world likewise united with God. And so only the question remains open why different results could be spread, which all were made out to be the work of the spirit. A difference has to be made whether a man has been appointed to accept divine gifts of the spirit and to spread them, or if he thinks that he himself has been appointed to this – whether he himself acquires an office before he has established the intimate union with God, before he has been born again in the spirit. Being born again in the spirit must have preceded it, before the spirit can have an effect in man. But being born again in the spirit has not always gone first, and nevertheless spiritual questions were raised and answered, and therefore teachings came into being, which deviate from each other and all of which claim to be acknowledged as truth. So spiritual problems were just solved intellectually, but which truthfully can only be solved from the spirit out of God. But the spirit of God can only be effective when man is born again in the spirit, when he stands in intimate, simple inion with God and longs for nothing else than receiving divine truth in the deepest awareness of his belonging to God and in the hot desire for final unification with him. Purest truth flows towards him, and the results of such people must inevitably agree. The degree of devotion towards God men cannot judge, but God sees it, and he elects who are to serve him, because he recognizes their will and their preparedness for this. An intimate relationship must exist between man and God because this intimate relationship is prerequisite for the effectiveness of the spirit in him and through him. But the intimate relationship can also be established just apparently before men, by those, who believe to be appointed and still are not. Because neither intellect nor rank, neither denomination nor office are decisive for the working of the spirit, but only the composition of the heart, but which does not remain hidden before God. Consequently wisdom and truth cannot be sought and expected there where human will has made an occupation out of it, because this appointment must come from God alone, and that man will be appointed, who makes himself worthy of his favour through the work of love, who through works of love undoes the fetters of the spirit, therefore opens his soul to the spiritual influx from outside. These God elects to his co-workers by imparting truth to them so that they can pass this on by teaching. And who therefore is taught by God, his knowledge will agree and will contain no deviation from each other. But these people will be found mostly outside of those who take up the right for themselves to teach. They will not belong to those who believe having acquired knowledge through study; they will be found in the ranks of those who walk their Earth way unnoticed; they will have no offices or aspire to such; they will not desire the world and its goods, but acquire the greatest favour for themselves through voluntary renunciation – to be allowed to receive the word of God and to be taught by God himself. So to be born again is first indispensable; the state must have occurred that man consciously seeks the connection with God, that he wants to serve him because he feels to be his creature and desires unification with him in the knowledge that this was his original state and his original initial purpose. This knowledge makes the work of the spirit possible in him and man also receptive for truth because without knowledge truth would be incomprehensible for him, and it would never ever be recognized as truth. School like truth can certainly be imparted, therefore passed on, but to be able to grasp it, the spirit of God must be able to work in man, which necessitates first love activity. Men who feel called to teach are however not always active in love and able to love, therefore also incapable of teaching because they can only pass on what they own. They however lack wisdom, as they lack love. And what they hand out can never be considered to be divine truth because God reserves this for himself to offer it to those who he chooses because they are worthy of his favour. Amen. B.D. NR. 2396.

 

I want to select a sentence from the above.

This sentence is, “First it must be considered, which purpose man pursues with it that he informs fellow men about it – whether earthly advantages are to be achieved by this or the will to give merely drives him.”

It says here, “First it must be considered.” So it is here about what comes first when we deal with the background of a teacher. It must be established whether he wants to achieve earthy advantages. This fact must be placed first. When it does not take the first priority, then the danger exists to overlook the main mistake of a Christian teacher, or minister, or pastor, and to deal with second-class or third-class mistakes.

It is about a very simple matter. The Didache says, “When he wants money he is a false prophet.” All people who appear before us and call themselves ministers, or pastors, or priests, or theologians, must immediately be recognized by us as evildoers, and when this does not happen, immediately at the first moment, then we probably have already lost and have become their victims. Think of Jesus; whenever he came across such people, he immediately adopted a confrontational approach. He immediately put himself into opposition to them. There was nothing common between him and these Pharisees. He called them hypocrites and accused them and insulted them. See Watch out!.

It is such a simple, indeed obvious matter, to recognize such wolfs in sheep clothing, to recognize them, that they want to achieve earthly advantages, that they want money, that they want to draw a salary, that they collect money for themselves, but it appears to be quite hard to get people to explain this false behaviour of such people to them.

The content of this message coming via Bertha Dudde is a hard blow for every clergyman, for every pastor, for every minister, priest and theologian.

This message alone is reason enough for such a person to reject the work of Bertha Dudde completely and call her a false prophet.

But this message also lets every supporter of Bertha Dudde’s work, who still maintains any kind of tie with such clergymen, stand there as a man who is a hypocrite.

Have a look at other such material: Why Bertha Dudde is treated with hostility p>
