In cognition of this spiritual need and its consequences men must pray for these misguided men; they must ask God for power and favour for those, so that they come to cognition of their serious difficulties and strive for light out of free will. Read more:

Every illness has a spiritual cause. And when we want to remove sickness then we must remove the spiritual cause of it.

When we now see a man suffering because, for instance, he is sick, then it is actually not right to pray for the removal of the disease, we should rather pray for the removal of the cause of the disease, and that is a spiritual cause.

We should therefore pray that such a person comes to spiritual enlightenment, that he becomes aware of a spiritual lack, and strives for spiritual progress and spiritual illumination.

In the message from Bertha Dudde, which I bring in the following, this is so explained: Because suffering on earth is to lead men to cognition that suffering on earth is to let men seek connection with God and cause their will to lead the life on earth agreeably to God. Only then suffering can be taken from them. Therefore the spiritual need must first be removed before God can turn away the earthly need from men. And this spiritual need must be cause for intercession. In cognition of this spiritual need and its consequences men must pray for these misguided men; they must ask God for power and favour for those, so that they come to cognition of their serious difficulties and strive for the light out of free will.

Now the message:

 

Intercession and favourable hearing.

2. September 1943. B.D. NR. 2867.

Devote yourselves to the work of the spirit, which initiates you to all truth. And where doubt depresses your heart, where a question emerges in you, there seek advice by the spirit in you i.e., ask God for illumination through the power of his spirit, and you will receive enlightenment and be taught according to truth. The need on earth is indescribably great; there is almost no man who remains untouched by it; but earthly need is just small, measured by the spiritual need, the consequence of which is not obvious to man and which he therefore considers little or not at all. Earthly need is limited because earth life is for every man only of very short duration when the standard is applied to the endless long time in eternity where an imperfect soul languishes in the bands of darkness. And God wants to turn away these torments from the soul through earthly need; he wants to purify the soul still on earth to save it the much more bitter suffering in the hereafter. God certainly can spare mankind on earth but this would be a lack of love, which the souls would feel painful in the hereafter, as the other way round some day the souls look back upon the time of suffering on earth filled with thanks, which has saved them unspeakable suffering in the hereafter. Because suffering on earth is to lead men to cognition; suffering on earth is to let men to seek connection with God and cause their will to lead the life on earth agreeably to God. Only then suffering can be taken from them. Therefore the spiritual need must first be removed before God can turn away the earthly need from men. And this spiritual need must be cause for intercession. In cognition of this spiritual need and its consequences men must pray for these misguided men; they must ask God for power and favour for those, so that they come to cognition of their serious difficulties and strive for the light out of free will. Because earthly need is for these men a favour, which exactly this cognition is to cause. Man is easily inclined to believe that earth suffering is a punishment for men, who do not live in accordance with the will of God. And that is why they ask God for mercy; they ask for the ending of earthly needs, for shortening of the state of suffering and therefore as it were for averting of the means of favour, which are really to help men to the maturation of the soul. Such intercession is certainly determined by love for fellowman, but this is supposed to be only meant for the spiritual well-being of man, then they prove their deep love for them, and then God can also hear the prayer by supplying them with favours to an increased extent so that they can come easier to cognition. But he cannot turn off the freedom of the will. Men themselves must have the will, to turn to the right way before God, only then the intercession earns them the blessing that they receive light and that the suffering on earth is not in vain. Amen. B.D. NR. 2867.
