Obligation of those who receive the word of God.

9. April 1949. B.D. NR. 4610.

The obligation to advocate that what is visibly divine spiritual good, has every man, who has recognized this first of all as true, otherwise he is unworthy to receive the bread of heaven, if he does not respect the delicious gift and does not assess as that what it is. If the divine word is offered through Godís great love to a man, then that is an act of mercy of greatest importance, then a current of favour pours over the man, for which he cannot be enough grateful, because the way up is by this easier passable; it is brightly illuminated and is therefore easier to be walked along and leading to the destination. It is therefore an extraordinary privilege, which God grants to man, because He recognizes in him the ability, to work with the now imparted gifts according to the will of God. Only this is free to his will, how he uses the gifts from above, because pressure is never exerted on a man on the part of God, however all possibilities are opened to him, to be obedient to the divine will. With the reception of the gift of favour he therefore also so to speak takes up an obligation Ė the right utilization of that, what the love of God offers to him. He must therefore give something in exchange, (10.4.1949) his preparedness, to carry out to fellowmen that, what he receives; he must give his will and his power in exchange, to promote the spreading of the spiritual good. He must uninterruptedly be active as worker in the vineyard of the Lord. Only then he proves himself worthy of those privileges and will be blessed on earth and also in the hereafter. It is now a difficult beginning wanting to impart to men, who are materially minded only, these gifts, as it is altogether a work which demands love, patience and persistence, if it is to bring in success. And for that reason the worker for the kingdom of God also needs increased power supply, so that he does not get tired and careless in his activity. He must therefore first of all keep himself to the divine word; he must saturate himself with the bread of heaven, to receive power for his earth-way and altogether to advocate that, what he brings to fellowmen. Because as soon as he seriously advocates the kingdom of God, he will also have to expect hostile resistance, and he must forearm himself for it. But the resistance emanates from him, who is against truth. And therefore it is understandable, that opposing knowledge is presented to every man seriously working for God, that the lie and the error will there obviously show itself, where truth out of God is advocated. And now the fight starts between light and darkness. A good worker in the vineyard of the Lord will measure up to this fight at any time, because he possesses power of knowledge and clear discernment. Nevertheless he will be pressed very hard and find and receive support and power for resistance only in the word itself. And for that reason he must himself constantly receive the heavenly food, because only then can he withstand the hostile attacks. Therefore also this is an obligation, to utilize himself the delicious love gift of God as often as possible, to let it have an effect on him and let himself constantly be radiated through by the power, which the word of God emits, to now also be and remain suitable for the task, which he himself has chosen, to be able to resist, when the enemy will take more and more action against the supply of pure truth from above. Because his aim is to extinguish the light and to let men sink into greatest darkness, to win them completely for him. But God supports everyone who wants to serve him, and strengthens him with his power and his favour through perpetual supply of his word. Amen. B.D. NR. 4610.
