And if you disregard love, so you grant the opponent of God control over you and lose yourselves to him in eternal times, who gave up the love principle in free will, who became un-divine, because he completely gave up all love, who for that reason sank into deepest darkness and also would like to keep you men in it, so you offer him no resistance.

Divine principle love. Decision between God and the opponent.

27. September 1952. B.D. NR. 5495.

The divine principle in you must predominate, otherwise you do not become free from the control of him, who thinks and acts against God. But the divine principle is love and every act lacking love, every evil thought lacking love still marks you as belonging to the opponent. But then you are weak and of dark spirit. Physical strength is no proof of spiritual strength; busy intellectual activity no proof of an awakened spirit but the goodness of the heart, an obvious love work in fullest unselfishness proves that the divine principle predominates in a man, and then also his spirit is awakened, and he is full of light and power. But you men do not strive for spiritual goods; they are no reality for you, for you still think materially, and you hold in too high regard the human intellect and physical strength, but which are in reality nothing and worthless for eternity. Exactly these earthly good qualities can help to quick spiritual ascent, so you would use them to do what God demands of you for the maturing of the soul; so you would apply your physical strength to active neighbourly love; so you would use the ability to be able to be active intellectually to advance spiritually, by you turning your thoughts to him, who has created you, and seriously ask him for enlightenment about meaning and purpose of your earth life. The intellect has been given to you that you acquire knowledge and not just on material, but also on spiritual area. But the latter attracts you too little, because he, who still keeps you tied up, entices you with earthly material goods, and he seeks to make out all spiritual knowledge as useless, because he takes faith from you in a continuation of life after death. But if you would let the divine principle rule in you, then you would also recognize him, who wants to harm you. For love enlightens your spirit and gives you a light, where it was dark before. Love must flare up in you, if you want to think and act right. For that reason great earthly trouble is in the world, because love has cooled, because God no longer rules in it, but his opponent, who wants to agitate all men against each other; who drives them to think and act without love. But for that reason also so great spiritual trouble is among men, because lack of love lets them completely go blind, because no faith is anymore among them, which can only arise from love and which would teach men to think and act completely differently. God or his opponent. Between both you men must decide love or hate light or darkness power or powerlessness freely out of you, you must choose your lord. But God is love, and so you can find God only through love; you can only unite with God through love. And if you disregard love, so you grant the opponent of God control over you and lose yourselves to him in eternal times, who gave up the love principle in free will, who became un-divine, because he completely gave up all love, who for that reason sank into deepest darkness and also would like to keep you men in it, so you offer him no resistance. Liberate yourselves from his control, by you letting the divine principle predominate in you, by you fashioning yourselves to love, which lets you become children of God and therefore to most happy creatures, who are united with their father for ever. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5495.
