Man must be instructed so that the time is not going to be lost until man reaches recognition of the eternal divinity through own thought. To think over and to check the imparted knowledge is certainly also necessary but the thought must already be steered to the spiritual field in earliest youth, and this happens through instruction about God as creator and shaper of all things – about his will and the relationship of man to God.

A message from Bertha Dudde;

 

Right instruction of children. Will.

20. November 1945. B.D. NR. 3607.

The distance from God decreases when the being strives voluntarily towards him. The will already is enough to come closer to him when it is only earnest, because God’s love seizes the entity in the state of free will, which uses this will in the right direction. Power flows towards the being, and it now also gets active according to the will of God – that man works in love, who is of a will turned towards God. God only demands the change of will to then help him with his ascent up. Because now God covers man with his favour – he creates possibilities for him for the maturity of his soul; he gives him power for work in love and helpfully stands by him any time, always considering the spiritual welfare of man, so that the soul redeems itself out of its last material cover. And that is why the will of man must be directed towards God from the beginning, so that his earth life is fully utilized and he can achieve richest spiritual success. And that is why knowledge must be imparted to man about the highest and most perfect being, to whom his will is to turn. He must be instructed so that the time is not going to be lost until man reaches recognition of the eternal divinity through own thought. To think over and to check the imparted knowledge is certainly also necessary but the thought must already be steered to the spiritual field in earliest youth, and this happens through instruction about God as creator and shaper of all things – about his will and the relationship of man to God. The decision then still remains left up to man. Also already as a child he can give his will the right direction; he can strive to God and be seized by God’s love in earliest youth so that his ascent development proceeds much easier and he has greater power of resistance in later life when the decision is demanded and he is to weigh up through his intellectual activity what truth and what error is. The will, which strives for God, earns him the power to decide right; it earns him power of recognition because the love of God now never leaves him out. Also only in later life man can certainly direct his will towards God when the knowledge has not been imparted to him as child but then his wrestling about truth is more difficult, and he has lost much time, which he could use for the welfare of his soul. And that is why it is a great blessing when children are instructed right because the knowledge about both powers – about God and his opponent – is necessary to be able to decide for one of the two powers. And that is why it is a crime with youth to let them walk in ignorance or to want to take the faith in God, the eternal creator and father, already as child – God certainly guides men so that they also then still reach knowledge, to be able to decide freely, but the soul must overcome by far greater resistances, and its ascent is made more difficult. Because the will must without fail first be turned towards God before the power can flow towards man, which he needs to free himself from him out of whose will he has emerged and who has also put his will turned away from God into those beings, which his will called into life under use of the power out of God. Only the will turned towards God decreases the distance from God and guarantees the complete bridging over of the gulf, which through the former defection from God separates the entity from him. B.D. NR. 3607.
