But the enemy of your soul positions the lever precisely in the time of trouble he now seeks to direct your thought and wish at what you lack of earthly goods; he seeks to strengthen your desire for it and to imprison your thoughts and only the power of your will protects you from it. Read more:

Vigilance against the enemy of souls.

18. June 1946. B.D. NR. 3804.

You are to be on your guard that you do not fall victim to the enemy of your souls, because he is constantly intent on leading you astray and pushing you away from the right way through all kinds of means of blinding. He also comes in the robe of a leader, and seeks to so win your trust; he promises to lead you safely to the destination, however his destination is the world - he therefore promises you earthly advantages, help in earthly difficulties; he seeks to smooth the ways for you, but everything under one condition to let him have your soul, therefore to withdraw your feelings and thoughts from God, from spiritual striving. And all his promises will demand acts of unkindness; every man, who wants to gain earthly advantages, will not be able to do this, if he wants to live in love. Therefore he must give up the one or the other; he must know that he sells his soul, if he wants to shape his earthly life to a life of pleasure. He must know that every attempt for it happens upon the suggestions of him, who wants to ruin the soul. And he must be on his guard he must take his refuge with God, that he protects him from the influence of the enemy; he must ask for the strengthening of his will towards the good and towards the renunciation of earthly goods. Because what do you receive in exchange if you also create for yourselves an earthly life in prosperity and comfort? Only an unbearable lot for the soul in the opposite kingdom. Because when the time of trouble overcomes you, then it also has its wise meaning and purpose as long as it is allowed by God himself. But the enemy of your soul positions the lever precisely in the time of trouble he now seeks to direct your thought and wish at what you lack of earthly goods; he seeks to strengthen your desire for it and to imprison your thoughts and only the power of your will protects you from it. Because what he promises is just deception; it is only of use for you the few days of your earth life, to then sink into a nothing and to leave your souls behind in extreme poverty. Renounce voluntarily that what only makes the body happy but brings in no use to the soul; live in poverty of the body on earth, and in return for it give spiritual good to your souls, which is imperishable and follows you into eternity. Be on your guard in the face of all temptations, and remain in prayer. Ask for power and favour and strengthening of your will. And your desire will decrease; earthly goods will no longer appear so enticing; you will be able to resist all insinuations of the enemy and can accept spiritual good as compensation, which makes your souls thousand fold happier, because it brings eternal life to you. Amen. B.D. NR. 3804.
