Therefore the redemption of man on earth is certainly a work of free will, but which is only then active in the right direction, when Jesus Christ is called for as redeemer of mankind to help. Read more:

Self-redemption. With Jesus Christ only.

17. and 18. April 1951. B.D. NR. 5106.

No-one will be able to redeem himself out of own power, and still it alone depends on his will, whether earth life brings man complete redemption from the bound state, which was the result of the former descent from God. Therefore redemption means becoming free from the power of Satan, who separated the spiritual beings from God, who let them become sinful and unhappy. To bring about this redemption out of own power has been impossible to the spiritual once fallen, until Jesus Christ descended to earth to achieve this work as man. He arose as opponent of Satan and defeated him, i.e., his will was so strong that he resisted him, that the developed love as Godís share in himself in a measure, which let the opponent of God become powerless, because love is power from God.

To kindle this love is possible for every man; therefore also every man could redeem himself, when he wants it. But exactly the will is weakened through the former sin; man is inferior to the opponent of God, and his own power is not enough to free himself from him, because the will of love is too little as share of the inheritance of him, who lacks all love. But through Jesus Christ man has been put into the position, to increase the will of love, as soon as he makes use of the favours of the work of redemption, as soon as he has him as help, who has died for him on the cross and has paid the purchase price with his blood for all souls to the opponent of God. He now can no longer keep him bound, when man himself wants to free himself. Therefore the redemption of man on earth is certainly a work of free will, but which is only then active in the right direction, when Jesus Christ is called for as redeemer of mankind to help. Then man redeems himself, but which he cannot without Jesus Christ, since Satan has him then still under control, whose power was only broken through Jesus Christ, therefore man must put himself behind him to break free from the control of Satan. Self-redemption without Jesus Christ is an impossibility, but with him to be achieved very well, but man must first muster the will to free himself, otherwise also the divine redeemer cannot carry out the work of redemption with him, although he died for all men on the cross. But to no man it is refused to make use of the favours acquired by him, why therefore also the whole of mankind shares in the work of redemption of Christ, but which does not say that men are redeemed against their will. (18.4.1951) In free will they can give themselves to Jesus Christ as his own, but also remain loyal to Satan, who so to speak took part in the creation of the spiritual, because he obtained the power for it from God, however used the power according to his will and so also put the resistance against God into the beings will wise, from which Jesus Christ, through his exceeding great love, wants to redeem them. The work of redemption is accomplished for all, but no being is inevitably redeemed, but it must itself have the will to be redeemed through Jesus Christ Ė otherwise the work of redemption has been achieved in vain for this being, because it still acknowledges Satan as its lord and has no desire to flee from his power. Amen. B.D. NR. 5106.
