And therefore two powers entice you men, and you yourselves can decide; you yourselves can choose, to whom you want to strive. You can become my children; but you can also remain his children. That is the decision, which you men have to make on earth. Read more:

The narrow way.

2. and 4. June 1952. B.D. NR. 5405.

I want to live in you; I want to rule in your hearts, but with a love, which is to make you happy. I want to be in you. This my presence also makes you to my children; then I have come to mine, and they have received me. My whole love belongs to you, you who dwell as my creatures on this earth, it looks after you and leads you ways, which indeed are often stony and laborious to cover. I lead you, and yet I again stand at the destination and expect you. You therefore have my perpetual help, and no-one can say, to have never experienced my help. But so he does not follow my loving push and my love call, he remains behind, and those who follow me win a wide lead and they reach the destination. I myself take them to my father heart and introduce them to my house the child has found home to the father, from whom it was endless long time far away for which he is to be blamed. He has now finally found back, because he has walked on the only way, which leads to me the way of love. But this way is not easy to go; it offers no enticements, no feast for the eyes; it is not level and to go effortlessly, but it must be climbed step by step, because it leads steep upwards and because many obstacles must be moved away before, before it gets passable. But it is passable, because a leader goes all the time next to you, supporting and protecting you, supplying you with power, when you want to fail. Full of love his words give comfort; he takes your load, which you must bear; carefully he leads you over dangerous rocks; he is constantly your companion. Therefore you can reach the destination, provided that you have the will to it. But now it is well possible for you to direct your looks towards the broad way, and this broad way can easily appear to you desirable to you, for it is hemmed in by pleasures and enjoyments of all kind. The most loving pictures entice the walker to dare a leap from the narrow, difficult passable way to the broad enticing road, where many romp about in the enjoyment of the world. The temptation is very great, and quite many cannot resist it. He leaves the laborious way, and he is always helped over to the broad way. For everywhere stand figures, who wave to him and offer him the hand; who are glad to be able to entice the walker away from the narrow way. But the broad way does not lead to the same destination it leads downwards, so sure as the narrow way leads upwards.

This picture makes it clear to you that the last destination is only reached through overcoming; that it costs a certain fight with oneself and with the difficulties, which put themselves in the way. To the last destination man can only arrive, when he takes it seriously; when he does not pay attention to all difficulties; when he directs his eye upwards only, where I am in prospect for him as most marvellous destination. (4.6.1952) Then I myself carry his feet over the obstacles; then he does not see them, but shiningly his look clings to me, me who stretches his hand out to him, to which he can follow; which guides him to the end of the way. But how different is the life of those, who walk on different ways. How many joys and pleasures can the one record, how many privations, sufferings and hardships the other. The days fashion themselves varied for the one, while the other only sees the trouble with him and with others and he carries apart from his own load still the load of fellowmen, because love drives him to it. But in future comes the repayment, and it will be as man himself desired it and as he has submitted his desire to proof. Spiritual goods will receive, who has striven spiritually, who has not forgotten me over all hardship, but undeterred came up to me. But those who walk the broad way suddenly see that it ends in the deep. The deep will receive all, for they persistently went downward, the way, which certainly started with good intentions, but which were soon given up, because the temptations dispelled all doubts, because sin gets out of hand, where my opponent can have an effect upon the souls of men. And the broad way has been laid out by him with the aim to ruin men.

And therefore two powers entice you men, and you yourselves can decide; you yourselves can choose, to whom you want to strive. You can become my children; but you can also remain his children. That is the decision, which you men have to make on earth. This is an extremely responsible decision, for it determines about your whole eternity. For that reason both of the two rulers sends out his messengers. No-one will be, who walks the broad way, who does not meet warners and admonitioners, for they stand by the edge of the way; they know the Lord, he who alone can offer salvation, and this cognition stimulates them to also supply information to their fellowmen and to entice them away from the extremely dangerous broad way. Only rarely it succeeds to influence the walkers so that they leave the broad way and join the pilgrims on the narrow way. But by my love and mercy seizes these, and I make the ascent easy for them, because they overcame themselves. And a marvellous crown is in prospect for the overcomers they will be the first, because they possess my whole father love, which I also wanted to give to the others, but had to experience rejection from these. For who goes the broad way, he goes without me because love for the world suffocated all love for me and fellowmen and without love the cleft cannot be bridged.

Go the cross road of love love and suffer and carry your earth load in humility and devotion and know that in this way you considerably shorten the way to me; that your soul always becomes lighter and clearer the higher you climb.

Know that you outshine those souls, which did not do the same as you, and that you in future in the spiritual kingdom can work on those, which remained behind in their spiritual development; that you are then to help them and can help them; that also they gain the light. For I cannot move arbitrarily into the kingdom of light those, who failed in earth life; who did not live as it was my will, but let themselves be determined by him, who is my opponent. But they are not to get lost for ever. And this is your mission in future, to snatch the souls from darkness, to help them to happiness, although they will never reach the degree of light, which a right way on earth brings in. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5405.
