The tendency towards the world decreases the flow of spiritual goods, and that is why worldly minded people will come less in contact with spiritual gifts; they stand too far from the spiritual kingdom and do not recognize its envoys when they approach them. Read more:

An important subject in the development of a person is the recognition that one has to completely part company from the world.

This not parting company from the world is probably the most serious mark of influence of denominations. It is that what leads denominations and their adherents to being totally embedded in the regiment of Antichrist.

It is so much part of life and of the teaching of denominations that quite a considerable amount of energy is needed to really recognize the situation.

This not separating from the world, and the failure to recognize this problem, is something that can strongly hold back a Christian and also does so, and keeps him from leading a victorious life.

A message by Bertha Dudde follows:

 

Overcoming the world.

29. July 1945. B.D. NR. 3501.

The tendency towards the world decreases the flow of spiritual goods, and that is why worldly minded people will come less in contact with spiritual gifts; they stand too far from the spiritual kingdom and do not recognize its envoys when they approach them. Because God brings people together; he leads his servants on earth towards those who are willing to accept the word of God, who are worth to be candidates of the spiritual kingdom through their will not being completely turned away and turned towards the world. They are certainly not forced to accept the divine word, but they have to recognize the spiritual gifts as such and open themselves voluntarily to them. As despisers of the world they also recognize the value of divine revelations and make their hearts accessible to them. The man of the world however will also have the opportunity to give his attention to those, but his senses feel nothing of the divine breath, which touches him, and indifferently or brusquely he declines because he thinks the world offers him more valuable things. And so valuable gifts remain unnoticed on earth, which constitute the entire richness of his soul in the hereafter, because only the spiritual eye and ear sees and hears something , but these are completely undeveloped with men of the world, and in the hereafter this ignorance has an effect of fullest darkness, which means an agonizing lot for the soul. People striving spiritually have a fine eye and ear for spiritual gifts; they feel the origin because the divine-spiritual touches their souls beneficently, and that is why the servants of God are recognized by them as envoys of the spiritual kingdom and their gifts accepted with thanks. Nevertheless the representatives of the divine word are to spread it throughout the world; they are to try again and again to also win men of the world, even though this is a work which requires patience and love because they are often rejected and can score little success. But the world does not always satisfy men completely, and every man comes into situations where he is open to a communication out of the spiritual kingdom. And these opportunities are to be used so that they still decide to change their will in times of earthly trouble. Because it approaches all men because God leaves none of his creatures to his fate but again and again seeks to win influence upon their souls. The smallest stirring of the will and thoughts turned towards the spiritual kingdom also increase the opportunities to accept spiritual communication because God pays attention to them and gives to everyone according to his desire. But the world must be overcome to be able to fully appreciate the value of spiritual gifts. All spiritual wants to be seized by the spirit in man, but it slumbers where the world still imprisons man. The release of the spirit, its awakening causes the abandoning of that what is worldly earthly, and desire for the spiritual kingdom, the actual home of the spirit. And that is why he must despise the world who desires to approach the kingdom of God. Amen. B.D. NR. 3501.
