Truly all power was at my disposal, and I could create everything for me, earthly wealth and reputation before the world. I could have ruled like a king and take up all honour for me; but I did not see that what is high, but only saw what is miserable, weak and bend myself down to it; I knew no arrogance and sought no honour and fame from men.

Bertha Dudde:

 

Whosoever shall exalt himself. Arrogance. Honour.

15. December 1950. B.D. NR. 5021.

Who humbles himself, will be exalted. But who lets himself be honoured by his fellowmen, his reward in the hereafter will truly be a small one, because he has already his reward gone. You men are indeed only for that reason on earth, because you are still imperfect, otherwise you would have already entered the kingdom of the happy spirits, which presupposes the degree of perfection. But so you are imperfect, how can you then demand honour from fellowmen? How can you let yourselves be honoured, you who cannot yet pass before my eyes, so I suddenly recall you from this world? Who humbles himself, will be exalted. Therefore exaltation in my kingdom presupposes a deep humility, which you are not only to prove to me, but also to fellowmen, by which indeed not obsequiousness and crawling service is to be understood. But you men are to never be overbearing to fellowmen. What distinguish you of spiritual gifts, what you possess of talents, busy intellect or other abilities, that is not your merit, but has been given to you by your creator and father according to your purpose on earth. Therefore these gifts are not allowed to let you become arrogant, but just grateful to him, who has equipped you so abundantly. But you are nevertheless to remain aware of it that your soul is still imperfect and that it is it alone, which survives the body that therefore all earthly gifts pass, as you yourselves pass in future and except your soul nothing is left, that gives you the right to be arrogant. For that reason it not the proper thing to do on earth, that extremely great reverence is shown to a man, that men, who are his brothers, bend before him and lie before his feet serving. It is not the proper thing to do that a man lets honour be shown to himself, which elevate him to a king, when such rule is not transferred to him. For even every earthly ruler is to be regarded as loving, fatherly ruler for his subjects, if he wants to gain their love and not just be feared. Then every subject will also automatically testify the honour to him, which he deserves. But he is put above men as earthly ruler through my will. But also his arrogance is no virtue, but a weakness and a fault before my eyes. You men are all equal before me; you are to be like brothers among each other; you are to serve one another in love, then you move on earth as my true children, and you remain of humble heart. Because you are always to imagine my course on earth, how I walked in the midst of men with my disciples, whom I stood by like a brother and friend and whom I also instructed brotherly. Truly all power was at my disposal, and I could create everything for me, earthly wealth and reputation before the world. I could have ruled like a king and take up all honour for me; but I did not see that what is high, but only saw what is miserable, weak and bend myself down to it; I knew no arrogance and sought no honour and fame from men. I only gave love and demanded also only love from men. And who wants to follow me, he is to serve in love, but never want to rule in power. Only then he can be put over great things in my kingdom, when he has lowered himself on earth like me. Amen. B.D. NR. 5021.
