Awakening of the spark of God in man.

25. May 1952. B.D. NR. 5400.

My spirit is to become effective in you. A spark of my spirit is in you, therefore something divine slumbers in you, which can influence your thinking, wanting and acting, when you yourselves allow it this. You yourselves decide, whether this spirit spark can become active in you; it is completely given into your will to awaken the spirit in you to life, for it is certainly in you, but it waits for the fulfilment of the conditions, under which its work is allowed. Neither my omnipotence can determine my share in you to activity, nor my extremely great love, for everything is based on the law of the eternal order, also the shaping of man with all his abilities and not least on the free will of man, without which a perfect creature cannot be imagined, and which therefore is to also strive for, to again enter into the state of perfection. But it is also not possible for the counter pole, to prevent the divine spirit spark in you at its work, so you want this yourselves. You alone determine your attitude towards me and also to my opponent; therefore you also have a free will, which can act just as evil and as good. I now know each single heart of men and follow its spiritual development; but I also recognize the temptations of my opponent, to bring man under his influence, and his influence is often so strong that it does not remain without effect; that man gets weak, to want the right, and is inclined to give in to him, who wants to steer his will in the wrong direction. Man is weak without my help for this weakness of will is the natural result of his distance from me through the former sin against me. He can want right, but needs for it a supply of favour on my part, which is completely at his command in the acknowledging of Christ. For that reason he must acknowledge Christ, who brought the severest sacrifice for the reinforced will of mankind. For I demand from man during his earth existence a free will decision, therefore I must also offer him the guarantee to be able to make this free will decision, if I want that he reaches perfection. He must be able to make use of his will in every direction; otherwise I could not demand such from him. And for it your spirit out of me does the necessary help for you, so you grant it the right for it. The spirit spark, which is share of me myself, always influences you in my will, so that man can therefore certainly say with right, to be directed by the divine will, which has given the spirit in him the right to express itself.

For that reason it is always my care that you put yourselves into the state, where the spirit in you can work, because you are then already relieved of every responsibility, for as soon as my spirit works in you, you also already subordinate yourselves to my will, therefore my will can be active in you, but voluntarily you have inserted your will into mine, not forced through my will.

But my spirit can on the other hand only work in a man, who puts himself consciously under the cross of Christ i.e., the once weakened will could now also, through the acknowledgement of Christ and his work of redemption, experience the reinforcement from the divine redeemer, to think and act so that the precondition for my spirit work was fulfilled. The man, who brought the spirit spark in him to awakening, belongs to the earth children redeemed through his blood; he so to speak took already advantage of the gifts of favour acquired through the death on the cross for the shaping to love; his will was turned to the divine redeemer and therefore to me, as the creator and father from eternity, because the power for it flowed towards him, because he opened himself for the reception of favours.

A turning to Jesus Christ and acknowledging of the work of redemption inevitably results in the will directed rightly for the weakness of will of men was the cause of the great mercy of Jesus, to come to their help; the will must experience strengthening, but without being made unfree; man can now accomplish something, for which he was unable before. For Satan had bound the free will insofar, that his influence on men was so strong that they succumbed, what they however did not need, when they would have taken advantage of the power of love. Therefore the will was also free before the work of redemption, only completely weakened through the influence of Satan. And so also now the will of a man, who does not believe in Jesus Christ and his work of redemption, will show the same weakness; he will need a great inner struggle to direct the will right, and often not be able to do it, but can neither from above nor from below be forced in one particular direction of will.

But what he is not able to do out of his own power, that will be easy for him with Jesus Christ he is so to speak redeemed from his weakness of will; he perceptibly feels the supply of power; his will now moves in the right direction; the divine principle in him wins the upper hand the spirit spark flares up, and my will has now entered him, because his spirit is my share and can think and want no differently and now transfers his thinking and wanting on that man, who now lets himself be guided and strives for me free out of himself - who is now truly redeemed from the bounds of my opponent, because he has recognized me as God and father from eternity, who has come to world in Jesus Christ to redeem men. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5400.
