And he not only achieved the work of redemption for men of his time, but for all times he purchased for men the favour of a strengthened will, who believed in him and consciously put themselves under the cross, i.e., who themselves want to belong to those, whom he has redeemed from eternal death.

Will towards good - Power supply through divine redeemer.

30. and 31. December 1946. B.D. NR. 3948.

The will towards good inevitably results in supply of power, and that is why every man is also able to execute what he wants, because through his thinking turned towards the good he already gets into contact with the donor of power from eternity. And he will be able to act good who wants to act good. Because this the divine redeemer has achieved, Jesus Christ, through his death on the cross. He purchased for men increased power and strengthened will; he has overcome death, i.e. made bound will free; he wrested the power over the will of man out of the hand of the opponent of God, so that man is well able to give his will to the good and also let it become action. The redemption work of Christ was insofar of greatest importance as that men before were in the power of the opponent of God and could not, out of their own power, free themselves, because the will was again and again weakened through him, as long as they did not answer the opponent of God with the most effective weapon, with love, which is overcomer of also the worst enemy of the soul. And that is why God through Jesus Christ showed the way to men; he proved to them the power of love and purchased for mankind through his death on the cross the supply of power and strengthened will, so that at any time man can flee from the opponent of God, who believes in Jesus Christ as redeemer of the world and who, through love, makes himself to the candidate of the favours purchased through his death. It will well be possible for him, to want and to act well; he will not unresistingly be at the mercy of the enemy of the souls; power will also flow constantly towards him for the carrying out of that what is pleasing to God, if he just strives towards God. For that reason the eternal divinity embodied itself in a man to give to all men the proof that there is a way, which they just had to go to become free out of the dark power. Men have to fulfil a task on earth, and this fulfilment will never lie in the field of the impossible. But before the work of redemption men were in most extreme trouble through their weakness of will towards the temptations and challenging, which were however granted by God to his opponent. Through strong will towards love activity they could have resisted him. And they lacked this, and that is why they remained in his fetters; the striving towards the good just remained mental intention without execution. And some few felt this weakness, and they suffered under the bound will. But Jesus Christ redeemed them through his death on the cross. He went that way, which all have to go Ė the way of love, which also strengthened the will towards good, because it won power out of God through love and could control all responsibility. He broke the power of death, because dead is what lies bound on the ground, what is powerless and therefore remains inactive. And he not only achieved the work of redemption for men of his time, but for all times he purchased for men the favour of a strengthened will, who believed in him and consciously put themselves under the cross, i.e., who themselves want to belong to those, whom he has redeemed from eternal death. They will not lack power; they will be able to be good, if they want to be good; they will live in love, therefore seek to follow the man Jesus, because they acknowledge him as Godís son, as redeemer of the world, in whom God was in all fullness, because through love he had completely united himself with God and he therefore also possessed might and power in all fullness, to defeat the enemy of souls, to wrest from him the power over the souls of men. Because love alone is the means of redemption out of hostile power; through love alone man becomes strong and powerful, and he can defeat the enemy of the soul. Amen. B.D. NR. 3948.
