Opposing the adversary of God with of a strong will.

7. April 1947. B.D. NR. 4019.

Only a strong will is able to assert itself when it is essential to carry out a mission for the kingdom of God, and resistance is offered to it from all sides. Then the weak man will let up in his activity, while a strong will won’t be put off and keeps to the straight and narrow and reaches his aim. Every activity for the kingdom of God will incur the pursuit of the adversary of God, and his endeavour will always be to stop the work for God or to make it impossible. And so opponents will continuously arise among fellowmen for a servant of God, who seek to convince him of the uselessness of his work for the kingdom of God, to suffocate in him the drive to busy activity. These are those men who are very strongly influenced by the opponent and listen to his mental insinuations. But the opponent of God is an enemy of truth, and that is why he will always fight truth; he will see to it that the servants of God are permanently besieged by fellowmen, that they describe this spiritual work as unimportant and also spread doubts into the hearts of those representatives of the divine teaching. He will be busy everywhere where the possibility exists to win souls for the kingdom of God, and only where the servant of God sets a strong will against him, where he is not to let himself be put off through resistances of all kind, there success will also to be noted. Then he will not let up, and his closeness with God also strengthens his will to activity for him. The opponent of God works with cunning and violence, and where he achieves nothing through doubts with the representative of God, there he seeks to hinder men to accept the divine word; he seeks to steer them in a different direction so that they leave the valuable gift unnoticed or turn away from him. But he continuously spreads weed between the divine seed; through wrong teaching he seeks to undermine and to dispel truth. And by virtue of his will the servant of God must again offer resistance; he must apply his spiritual knowledge and refute every objection when it is possible for him. He is not allowed to become tired, but he must bring the great spiritual misery home, which has induced God to obviously help men, and to now be a loyal servant for him who eagerly works for his Lord to fulfil his will. Because the misery is great, and a good worker in the vineyard of the Lord can achieve much work, and he will also become victor over the enemy of the souls, when only he asks God for a strong will and for help in his own spiritual trouble. Amen. B.D. NR. 4019.
