To the soul God gives the bread of heaven, and when it accepts this and gratefully refreshes itself with it, he also takes over the care for the body, to offer to it at its time that what it needs for life on earth. He feeds the hungry – who carry desire for food for the soul. Read more:

In the now following message by Bertha Dudde it is described several times that the spiritual meaning of the word bread is the food for the soul. It is the word of God. When we therefore should pray, Give us day by day our daily bread, then we should quite consciously at the same time think of and desire the word of God. This also applies when we celebrate, think of or hold communion. There every participant should be completely aware of that it is there about the handing out of God’s word when the talk is about breaking of bread. On that occasion one can absolutely connect the whole thing with the taking of a normal meal but the meeting can also happen without any consumption of food. The decisive thing there is the dealing with God and his word, the bread of heaven.

The following applies to people who do not respect the bread of heaven: "But God also does not look after them in earthly needs but he leaves the care about it to them. They will also be able to cover the needs of the body because the counter power helps them to tie them up all the more to the world and therefore to himself."

And then an important sentence follows: "But it will always require the power of man himself, his life power, to obtain that what he needs."

So when it is said in Matthews 6:33 that all these things shall be added unto you, then this does not mean that we sit back and do nothing and need no effort for the obtaining of the needs for the body. God gives us the power for this and we should be grateful for this. He creates opportunities to find work or to successfully run a business or to usefully occupy ourselves in the family.

We therefore make an effort to obtain both, the bread of heaven and the bread for the body. For both we use our life power.

But the bread of heaven, the word that comes from God, that we strive for and desire it and run after it, but we do we do not run after worldly things and do not pine for it. We do not strive for material possessions; we do not want to get rich quickly and we do not want to have money so that we can buy things which just still bind us closer to the world of matter and keep us away from God and from communicating with him. A good example for this is the purchase of a smartphone. Such a device may be useful but the main purpose seems to be to constitute a replacement for the communication with God.

A good use of a smartphone would be to read the word of God with it, the Bible and the messages from Bertha Dudde.

Now follows the message:

 

Spiritual food. Seek ye first the kingdom.

10. August 1945. B.D. NR. 3510.

God feeds the hungry and waters the thirsty. To the soul and the body he gives what they need for the course on earth because his love does not leave his creatures in trouble. To the soul he gives the bread of heaven, and when it accepts this and gratefully refreshes itself with it, he also takes over the care for the body, to offer to it at its time that what it needs for life on earth. He feeds the hungry – who carry desire for food for the soul. This is precondition because the food, which he passes down from heaven to men, is valuable and is not wasted on men who do not respect it, who are full of worldly consumption and have no desire for food for the soul. But God also does not look after them in earthly needs but he leaves the care about it to them. They will also be able to cover the needs of the body because the counter power helps them to tie them up all the more to the world and therefore to himself. But it will always require the power of man himself, his life power, to obtain that what he needs. But God supplies to his what they need provided they first desire the food for the soul. His word, which announces to them the will of the father in heaven, which preaches to them his love, wisdom and omnipotence, which instructs them, spends comfort and power and true refreshment for the soul of man, who absorbs it with a hungry heart. He will be able to confidently leave the care of the body to God who truly knows what he needs, and cares in fatherly love that his children do not suffer lack. He offers his word, the food of the soul, in love to men so that they fulfil their earth assignment and can cover the walk on earth walk with success. He wants to make it possible for them to reach the aim to become free of every outer form and to enter eternity as beings of light. That is why he gave life to man – therefore he will also sustain it until man has reached his aim when he earnestly strives for it. And therefore he will also give to the body what it needs for the sustaining; he will provide well for it so that it can meet its earth assignment. He feeds and waters men spiritually and earthly. But he requires hunger and thirst of the souls. This is a condition which man must fulfil to not lose the fatherly care; he must desire spiritual feeding because this is desire for God himself. It is a gift of favour of immeasurable value to be fed by God himself. But God never hands out his gift to unworthy, who do not respect the giver and also spurn his gift when it would be offered to them. The spiritual food is incomparably more valuable and life of the soul more important than the preservation of the body, the earthly flesh and bones, which is transient. But God does not let the mortal cover of man go hungry and live in want when its soul strives for winning eternal life – when his soul hungers for the bread of heaven, for food, which the fatherly love offers to it as God’s word, which gives power for ascent development. He gives to the body what it needs when man puts the food of the soul before all other needs, and he will guide man through all trouble of the time according to wise discretion, always considering the spiritual life of man; he will give to him as it is good for his soul because his promise is: Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you. Amen. B.D. NR. 3510.
