And because the last days necessitate an increased struggle for the soul to still reach its goal every opportunity must be taken from it to become lukewarm and sluggish in its upward striving. And that is why again and again the soul will be approached by suffering and misery and every man is to be thankful for this because they are the last means that prevent too deep a relapse.

Reason for Suffering and Misery in the Latter Days.

18. February 1947. B.D. NR. 3979.

A short time of good living on earth can result in a spiritual decline for every single man because as soon as the material fight for survival is eliminated the soul is tremendously receptive to every kind of stimuli and offers therefore also little resistance when the temptations of the world are approaching. And because the last days necessitate an increased struggle for the soul to still reach its goal every opportunity must be taken from it to become lukewarm and sluggish in its upward striving. And that is why again and again the soul will be approached by suffering and misery and every man is to be thankful for this because they are the last means that prevent too deep a relapse. Worldly wellbeing can only be without disadvantage for a soul that is already mature, it however does not need worldly riches, no bodily pleasures and also no obvious good living conditions but it will feel fine in every situation in life even when this seems to be laborious and humble to people, as on the other hand also seemingly good living conditions are not enough for an immature soul and it continually lusts after increased possessions, and so does not show regard to the state of its soul and is in great danger. No event approaches man in vain that touches the soul as misery and toil, again and again God tries to win him for himself by him feeling his powerlessness and turning to God for help, again and again therefore events follow one after the other that put a soul in a state of turmoil and turn away the attention of man from worldly pleasures and enjoyments because the soul must struggle perpetually and it is not allowed to become lukewarm. God knows what is useful to the soul and he constantly creates new possibilities for it to mature which is why there has to be a continued struggle for survival. But God never leaves a soul without power that desires it and trustingly turns to God for help. He gives it what it needs worldly wise and spiritually but he takes away from the body for the sake of the soul what could endanger the soul. And that is why you men do not have to expect a considerable improvement of your living conditions but again and again one event will succeed another which forces you to a heightened fight for survival. But it is the time before the end and it is only short and for every man bearable when he gets in touch with his creator and sustainer, with his eternal father. Then he will only draw intellectual benefit from the difficult time for him and he will also one day recognize their blessings, he will thank God for his care, for the suffering, that contributed to the increase of the maturity of the soul, that kept him from eternal ruin. Amen. B.D. NR. 3979.
