The work of redemption of Christ does not restrict the free will of man, i.e., mankind has not instantly be redeemed out of constraint, but only those men, who want it themselves, can put themselves into the blessing of the work of redemption; they can be beneficiaries of the treasure of favour, which Jesus Christ has acquired through his death on the cross for mankind.

Redemption through Christ is an act of free will.

18. June 1950. B.D. NR. 4917.

I wanted to redeem the world from its sins; I wanted to bring freedom to men; I wanted to redeem them from their bound state, which was the result of their sins. But the world did not accept my sacrifice, which I made for them to God as man Jesus. The world remained in sin and always sank further into the deep. This explanation must be given before, otherwise the idea of redemption through Jesus Christ would be incomprehensible for men, who seriously think about it and consider the spiritual low of men in general. The work of redemption of Christ does not restrict the free will of man, i.e., mankind has not instantly be redeemed out of constraint, but only those men, who want it themselves, can put themselves into the blessing of the work of redemption; they can be beneficiaries of the treasure of favour, which Jesus Christ has acquired through his death on the cross for mankind. All men could put themselves into the blessing of the work of redemption, when they wanted it, and all sin guilt could be wiped out. But men themselves did not want it, except for few, who resorted to Jesus Christ and shared the favours, which his love acquired for them through his death on the cross, which is eternally unfathomable as his love, which does not stop for ever. But free will is never ignored, otherwise all spiritual would be redeemed instantly, however could never become perfect. And for that reason the acknowledging of Christ as Godís son and redeemer of the world is also an act of free will and of faith, which can again be won through right use of will. The work of redemption can only come into force with the conscious call to Christ for help, but which presupposes faith in him, therefore also means a turning to him willing wise. Has this act taken place, then also the flowing over of power and favour is secured, which brings redemption to man out of spiritual trouble, which makes him free out of the fetters of Satan, out of the bound state, which is the lot of all spiritual as result of the former rebellion against God, as result of sin. The will alone makes man free, so he turns to Jesus Christ, that he helps him. But where faith in him and his divine mission is lacking, there can be no redemption; there mankind remains in sin and remains bound in the power of Satan, until he in future lets himself be seized by the extremely great love of Christ, until also he sinks down at his cross and asks for his favour. Amen. B.D. NR. 4917.
