But think of life after death – think of it that you do not know the hour of your decease, but it can be very close and that you then lose everything, what you possess of earthly goods. Then you must fear the hour of death. But you will long for it, so you have gathered spiritual treasures, so you renounce earthly goods, to exchange them for gifts offered by me. Then you long for the hour of death, because you know that then the hour of the entry into eternal life has come, since you leave earth. As a fleeting moment earth life will appear to you, and it is still decisive for all eternity. Read more:

Love for the world. Illness. No man can serve two masters.

27. August 1950. B.D. NR. 4957.

Love for the world is a slow-acting illness, which certainly leads to spiritual death. And so you can gauge that your father in heaven must reach only too often for painful means to rescue you from this death, to get you spiritual recovery, to cause you to renounce the world and its pleasures, so that you live for ever. It would be wrong pity if I would shrink from such means, only to not let you suffer during your earth life; it would be a false love, which could bring no blessing to you, but only ruin for your soul. But my wisdom foresees, and my love seeks to help you. That you must give up the world to win me, is unavoidable, and so you do not sacrifice it voluntarily, I must take from you, whereat you heart is very attached to. And because of that, you must suffer so often on earth, although your way of life is not so downright bad. But you are still filled with wrong love, with love to matter, with a love, which must first be directed right, if it is to bless you. And as long as you do not stamp this love out of your heart, I have no space in it, because where I dwell, all earthly desire must be overcome. And again I must say: No man can serve two masters. I do not content myself with shared love, but my opponent, the prince of the world, also does not allow it that you do not grant him the sole right to your soul. And so man must of necessity decide – for me or for him. But as long as he desires the world, his decision is meant for him, who pulls him down into ruin. He also gives you amply during earth life, but after death you stand in most bitter poverty over there, and agony and darkness is your lot. But my gifts are less tempting on earth, because they consists of spiritual goods, which appear less attractive to you men during earth life, on the other hand come to an immeasurable wealth after your death, which blesses you and makes you to children of the kingdom of light for ever. I offer incomparably more than my opponent, but his gifts blind you and make you greedy for them. But think of life after death – think of it that you do not know the hour of your decease, but it can be very close and that you then lose everything, what you possess of earthly goods. Then you must fear the hour of death. But you will long for it, so you have gathered spiritual treasures, so you renounce earthly goods, to exchange them for gifts offered by me. Then you long for the hour of death, because you know that then the hour of the entry into eternal life has come, since you leave earth. As a fleeting moment earth life will appear to you, and it is still decisive for all eternity. And for that reason understand it, when I afflict men with all kinds of troubles and take everything from them, what seems desirable to them. It is not cruelty, but love and wisdom, which very well recognizes that and why you men are in danger, and wants to rescue you out of it. Who must suffer, he is also allowed to know to be loved by me, but to whom life’s goods are offered in all fullness, he is already subject to my opponent, because I know his will, and I do not force him to change the will. But also these men I oppose through their fellowmen, who are to touch their hearts, so that they change to love. Then rescue is also still certain for them. But if their hearts are hardened, then their life of pleasure will appear more and more obviously, because the lord of the world gives them amply, because they have sold their soul for the sake of earthly goods, and spiritual death is certain for them. Amen. B.D. NR. 4957.
