Wave of revival in the time of the end.

7. and 8. August 1952. B.D. NR. 5457.

A great spiritual wave of revival goes over earth, for the end is near, and in the last time still many souls are to be won for the spiritual kingdom. The love of God is infinite and helps everywhere there, where men are powerless, because they live without love. The current of favour of God flows persistently towards men, and where only one heart opens to receive this current of favour, the power of God is revealed, and man testifies of Jesus Christ, the son of God and redeemer of the world. And for that reason the word of God is announced everywhere, but which will only then be effective at men, when it is preached by a man filled by the spirit of God, which gives life to the words, and for that reason also the listeners feel touched. And there will always be more such preachers filled with the spirit of God in the last time, and therefore these have been awakened. In every way the Lord of heaven and of earth reveals himself; through the mouth of many men he speaks, but always only then, when a spiritual revival has preceded. But then the spirit in man drives him to more eager activity for God and his kingdom.

But in the same measure also the opponent of God works, and his effort is the same: to let men speak for him, so that darkness is spread and God is to lose from his power. Mankind lives in confused thinking; it no longer has the gift of differentiation; it accepts and rejects, completely arbitrarily, for it is unable to recognize truth as truth and error as error. And this inability the opponent of God uses, by him seeking to infiltrate truth with error.

Where divine revelations are now supplied to earth, where the spirit of God can have an effect in man, there is pure truth, and it also experiences the protection of him, who wants to reveal himself by this. The opponent can only have an effect there, where the desire for truth does not predominate; where therefore God, as eternal truth himself, does not stand in first position or were still earthbound thoughts emerge; where the spirit of God cannot rule in man unlimitedly. Then it steps back, and the hostile power wins influence upon the thinking of man, but who believes being taught by the spirit of God. Then one can also not speak of spiritual revival; then the will perhaps existed, but it did not do, what is necessary to give life to the spirit in him.

Many men want to hear God speak, and God also lovingly leans toward those, who desire to hear his word. But whether they are able to hear his voice that depends on the fashioning of the soul, which is the spiritual ear for the voice of God. But the will to hear Godís word can also stimulate the intellect to form divine words, what is not to be condemned, since then the human will is not going to think against God. But to what the human intellect gives birth is not Godís word. But on the other hand a man can stand in deep desire for Godís word and hear him filled by this desire; without that he knows it that it is God himself, who speaks out of him. He then unconsciously serves as one revived by the Lord Ė and he speaks the truth, because his desire for it is also at the same time desire for God, which he fulfils at any time. (8.8.1952) The revivals in the last time before the end will particularly emerge there, where the announcing of the Gospel is felt as an inner need. There the spirit in man works already, and it expresses itself then also obviously, by an unusual talent now becoming evident with man, however only during the service for God and his kingdom. Then a man without special talent for speaking will be able to hold good speeches; a man without special previous knowledge will be able to give informative explanations; he will be able to answer fluently, so he is questioned about spiritual things. The spirit of God will work obviously; the man will belong to the revived, who livingly support the word of God, because they are driven from the inside through the spirit, which constantly pushes to the father spirit, which always reveals the divine will to man and pushes him to carry it out. This kind of revival will particularly appear in communities, where the desire predominates to hear Godís word, and God therefore speaks to the community through a man. And the community will listen to this man, because the work of God is obvious at this man. But his speaking will be as if he speaks himself; nothing supernatural will emerge on that occasion, although abilities show, which are otherwise not his. But he does not speak as a medium; he does not speak automatically, he is therefore not forced to speak, by words being formed in his mouth, uninfluenced by the intellect. Such an announcing can also take place, but is not to be seen as revival of the spirit; it is rather a seizing of possession of the human will through a being, which wants to announce itself. With the right revival the spirit as it were enlightens the intellect of man; it directs his thinking right, and therefore man can speak alive to his listeners, not like an automat, which pushes out word by word and lets a foreign power be recognized, which speaks out of him. If this power is evil, so it can cause great damage; if it is good, so also the spiritual results can be good, but they are never allowed to be assed so as the spiritual work of God in man, which is such a bright radiating through with divine love power, which makes itself known as increased knowledge and great eagerness for work for God and his kingdom. This therefore applies to the announcing of the divine Gospel in the community, to which special attention is to be paid in the time of the end.

But the spirit of God can also express itself in quietness; it can instruct an individual person and supply knowledge to him, which has its purpose. Then the spirit of God has been revived in the man likewise through man himself. And also with such a revival a mission is connected Ė the knowledge, which man now receives, is to be passed on, for with divine support the Gospel is to be spread in all pureness. God himself looks after men, to whom the Gospel was offered in badly educated form and who for that reason have no right faith any longer, but which is to be given to them again through the supply of pure truth. God speaks to these men revived in the spirit; they hear his address in them like clear mental words; they receive impressive instructions with the purpose to pass these on to men. God therefore speaks to all men through those, but again not so that man serves God as form of speaking, but he must let his will become active himself after receiving the divine word, to pass on the divine word. This spirit work is insofar important, as that a foundation is again established that men are introduced into the basic truths; that God himself instructs mankind and consequently every doubt is getting refuted, every error uncovered and every wrong interpretation corrected Ė therefore the pure Gospel is announced to men from God himself, received through a man, in whom his spirit can work, and held on to through his will to serve God and men. Spirit revived men will always serve God with eagerness, and that in different ways. Therefore the spirit from God is always active in them, which directs their thinking and wanting

right; which imparts unusual power to them and lets them work seriously for the kingdom of God.

And such revivals will be frequently in the time of the end, but where this is possible, the spirit of God appears unusually, because his love and wisdom recognizes what serves mankind to their salvation. And he knows his servants and allocates that work to them, which they are able to do. He works in public as in quietness; according to his wise estimation he fills the offices with those, which they are well able to administer. And the tasks are also different, which he gives to his servants; but all work for his kingdom and serve him, and each ones work will be blessed. Amen.
