No man can serve two masters

But they are no two equal good lords, between whom he is to decide, but the one rules the kingdom of light, the other the kingdom of darkness. Read more:

"No man can serve two masters."

8. February 1952. B.D. NR. 5312.

No man can serve me and the world at the same time. Who turns his eye to the world, he cannot see me, because I keep myself hidden, as long as the mind of man is just directed towards the world. For I and the world do not belong together; the world is the kingdom of my opponent, but my kingdom is not of this world. For that reason, who wants to find me, must leave the world behind; he must turn away from it, because I am to be found opposite, because my kingdom lies anywhere else than the earthly world. I am a Lord, and my servants cannot serve another lord at the same time, who gives them opposing orders, which therefore do not accord with my will. But man is to decide; he can choose his lord for himself; he is not forced to the service for one or the other; he has free will, and it must drive him to that lord, whose servant he wants to be. But they are no two equal good lords, between whom he is to decide, but the one rules the kingdom of light, the other the kingdom of darkness. For that reason it should certainly be easy for you to make the right decision, but in your blindness you often do not recognize the kingdom of darkness, because many blinding lights deceive you; because the prince of the world puts his kingdom before the eye attractively, while my kingdom is to be recognized with spiritual eyes only, which you still keep closed. But if you decide voluntarily for me, so an extremely bright light will radiate for you, which lets no desire for the world any longer arise in you. And you will serve with joy your Lord, with eagerness fulfil everything, what he instructs you to do; you will no longer feel as his servants, but as his children, to whom you subordinate your will completely. And the turning away from the world you must like to carry out and do it naturally, because that kingdom no longer attracts you, which gives you no true light, which lies far away from my kingdom, which is not of this world. But I demand complete devotion of those, who want to serve me; I do not want that they still look back to that kingdom, which they have left; I do not want that they also serve him, who is my opponent, for I demand unquestioning loyalty from my servants; I demand love for their Lord and master, because only then the work can be done properly, which is absolutely necessary, to which I have hired my servants, because they are to support me, because this work must be carried out by man, who are completely devoted to me.

No man can serve two masters. And for that reason you must decide; you must ask your heart, to whom it pushes you; you must get rid of your love and desires, which are still meant for the world, when you want to serve me, when you want to enter into my services; you must then change your love and desire; you must direct them onto spiritual goods, onto that kingdom, in which I alone am ruler, and your decision will be right and earn you a happy lot in eternity, in that kingdom, that remains, when the earthly world passes, and which is your true home. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5312.
