The love of the God-man Jesus was so strong, that it was satisfaction to the eternal divinity, which longed for the love of all men. He gave his blood for the sins of mankind; he extinguished the sin with his blood, but please note – only of those, who acknowledge him and his work of redemption and want to belong to the crowd of the redeemed, otherwise all spiritual would already be redeemed, but could then not reach the state of perfection, which depends on the free test of will.

Justice of God. Guilt and atonement. Subjection – redemption.

11. January 1950. B.D. NR. 4816.

All creatures, which are in the state of free will, have reached a certain level of cognition, i.e., they are able to receive certain knowledge. But whether it is comprehensible to them, whether it is really putting them into the state of cognition, depends on how man uses his free will. Because the state of cognition is the sign of ascent development of man; it is a degree of maturity of the soul, which the free will of man is to strive for and which is therefore not allotted to him arbitrarily. But the ascent development is the result of a way of life according to the will of God, and God’s will is a life in love. Consequently only a man active in love can stand in cognition; therefore the higher knowledge can only be then acquired, when man devotes himself to a way of life in love. But then he will have understanding for everything; he will just need to deal mentally with a question, and also the right answer will be sent to him mentally – he will truthfully think and win rich knowledge. But there will also be problems, which solution depends on divine support, because the human intellect would actually not cope with it for ever, because they require the spiritual rebirth of man; they require a degree of maturity, which is not often found with men. But God never refuses the answer to such questions, when they are asked in all seriousness. He alone can also offer to men the incomprehensible so, that it becomes comprehensible to them, when they ask him intimately for it, but a certain faith is always necessary, which also accepts what appears incomprehensible, as long as man is still of a not awakened spirit, because everything is comprehensible to the awakened spirit. (13.1.1950) There is nothing, what would not let God’s love recognize, what would not have love as reason. But the justice of God cannot get eliminated, because the perfection of God causes it. And thus a great problem is already resolved: The redemption of mankind through Christ. On the one side stood an extremely great sin, on the other side the eternal divinity, at which the spiritual became guilty. But the sin was therefore so great, because the spiritual possessed the cognition, therefore did not sin as result of lack cognition. This sin also challenged the justice of God, because the perfection of God can never depart from his basic principle – atonement for every offence against the divine order, which took place with the defection of the spiritual from God. But the atonement was unspeakable severe, because the sin was endless severe. The distance from God resulted in the weakening of the spiritual. The spiritual lost all power; it no longer could go uphill a steep way out of own power, but constantly sank deeper, until a light being pitied these spiritual beings, until it helped this weak, sunken, before it completely got lost in the deep. The light being wanted to atone for the sin; it wanted to sacrifice itself for the unhappy beings, which now threatened to fail after the endless long course of development now in the stage as man, because they were powerless. And this light being descended to earth – a child of God embodied itself as man to help fellowmen. The light being stood in contact with God, and it knew about the unhappy state of the beings, which walked on earth and forgot their actual purpose. But the light being also knew a way, which led out of this unhappy state. It knew about everything, what took place in the spiritual kingdom, on earth and under the earth, i.e. about the lot of those, who dwelled in the deep. And as itself coming from the kingdom of light, it wanted to get men the same enviable state. But it came across a great resistance. A being from darkness worked against the being of light with word and act. It bound there where the light being wanted to lose, i.e., the being of darkness had great influence on men and urged them to their thinking, wanting and acting. But latter did not comply with the will of God, therefore the being of darkness worked in God-opposing mind, and man would have to resist its influence, when he wanted to make good his former wrong against God. But man was too weak for it; he was so to speak bound through the will of the opponent of God. If now redemption from his power was to come into existence for men, then a being had to face him, which had strong willpower at its disposal, which consciously stood by God and took up his power and might in the fight against him. And this being was Jesus Christ; he was that light being embodied as man, which was extremely strong in will and placed a weapon in opposition to the opponent, against which he was powerless. Love, which connected Jesus with God, and made him to the receiver of power out of God. And so he was superior to the opponent, and he liberated innumerable men out of the yoke of the dark power. (14.1.1950) But the yoke existed in that respect that man, being able to decide up or down, felt the greatest incentive down through the influence of him, to whom he owed his state of imperfection, that he therefore derived pleasure from everything, what was God-adverse, that he strove for everything, what pleases the body and pulls the soul down. The thinking, feeling and wanting of man the opponent of God sought to win for himself, and he then came across little resistance, because in man all urges found themselves again, which were the principle of the opponent. Man was so to speak in bondage to that power, which did not release him, but always besieged him more and more, so that he always carried out its wishes and always went more and more away from God. Man was a weak creature, whose will was bound, why he could not defend himself – what well could have very easily be possible, so he had used love as counter power, against which the opponent of God is powerless. For that reason one had to come as rescuer, who proved to men for the first time, that a breaking away from the opponent is well possible, but only through love, which earns man power for resistance, therefore results in will power. He further had to enlighten men about their life assignment, because through the influence of the opponent of God they lacked all knowledge. The redeemer out of spiritual trouble therefore had to bring the light and impart power to men. He had to help them to freedom; he had to remove the chains from the bound, from which they alone could not extricate themselves. The work of redemption of Christ only affects the spiritual state of men, which was so indescribable low, that a rising out of own power was impossible – exactly through the lack of love. And for that reason Jesus Christ instructed first men, and gave them as the most important the love command, so that men could bring themselves into the possession of power and light. But then he acquired through his death on the cross a spiritual base, i.e. a treasure of favour, which every man can raise, who believes in him and his work of redemption. He acquired reinforcement of the will for the weak in will and forgiveness of their sin. With pleasure God saw the work of love of a man, and he granted him fulfilment of the request, which the man Jesus presented to him for his fellowmen. He was satisfied with the death of a man, who wanted to rescue fellowmen from spiritual death. The love of the God-man Jesus was so strong, that it was satisfaction to the eternal divinity, which longed for the love of all men. He gave his blood for the sins of mankind; he extinguished the sin with his blood, but please note – only of those, who acknowledge him and his work of redemption and want to belong to the crowd of the redeemed, otherwise all spiritual would already be redeemed, but could then not reach the state of perfection, which depends on the free test of will. Amen. B.D. NR. 4816.
