Way of redemption of the judged spiritual.

29. and 30. September 1952. B.D. NR. 5497.

The judged spiritual is to be redeemed from its judgement – everything, what is still bound, what has not yet reached the original state of freedom, is still in judgement, and it remains there so long, until the love power breaks its fetters – until it redeems itself or lets itself be redeemed through love. But when love liberates the spiritual from its constraint, from a fetter, so this fetter must have been put on the spiritual through something, what opposes love, through hate and lack of love – therefore through him, who is destitute of all love and consequently the opponent of God, who is eternal love himself. From God once emerged complete free spiritual, a being, which was created in highest perfection and possessed light and power in all fullness and had it at his disposal in all freedom. It had emerged from eternal love, and so its original substance was love. But love also guarantees fullest freedom, and freedom again had to be able to develop itself in every direction. What now could think, want and act freely, also had to be able to go away from God, and it went away from God, by changing to the opposite, to a being, which changed all divine qualities, which were positive, into negative ones and so therefore became the opponent of God. The reasons of such a wrong will was to be sought in arrogance, because the being felt exceedingly strong through the unlimited reception of power from God. But this being no longer used this power according to divine love principle, but in a meaning opposed to God. It created beings in great number, which it certainly put out of itself through its power and its freedom of will, but which no longer possessed the freedom of will, since its will created them so, as it corresponded to its loveless thinking and wanting. The beings were submissively dependent on it and still, because they had come into being under the use of the power of God, were also creatures of God. But the love of God looked after these creatures. What was created destitute of all love was flowed through by the love power of God – light and power, i.e. cognition and freedom was given to the entity, but now the free decision of will was requested from it, according to which it could remain in its free state full of light, but could also lose it. (30.9.1952) The entity, which now again turned to the opponent of God in free will, also lost its cognition and its power with this decision of the will. Because now the divine love could no longer flow through it, because it rejected it, therefore opposed the power from God with open resistance. It consequently entered into a state, which could not be called a free one, for the power, which was now at its disposal through the opponent of God, the entity also had to use it according to its will, to action without love. Consequently it was in a certain judgement and was subordinate to a power, which only let its will be valid and forced the entity to have an effect in the same will. It was tied up, indeed through its own fault, and therefore also had to bear the misery and agony of an enslaved being. But the love of God followed the lost. The love of God devised a way out for the enslaved spiritual. Its might and power was stronger than that of the opponent of God, for where he acted in blind hate and wrong thinking, God worked in love and wisdom, and he designed a plan for the guiding back of the entity, which indeed still was under the control of the opponent, but was insofar wrested from his power, as that God formed this spiritual to creations of different kind; that his love will seized the spiritual, whose will indeed was still turned towards the opponent, but made this will unfree, i.e., that God prevented it to be obedient to his opponent. He bound the will, and he determined the entity to do that, what God wanted. The spiritual entered into a mandatory state; free will activity was impossible for it, but also an activity according to the will of the opponent was refused to the spiritual; on the other hand it slowly developed upwards in the mandatory state – it was forced to carry out a building up activity and consequently to fit into law of love from eternity, what always results in an ascent development. It was now indeed also still in judgment, because it was robbed of its free will, but always with the aim of redemption in future from the bound state and out of the power of him, who is without love. But the last aim can only be reached through the reception of the love of God. The spiritual must let itself be flowed through by it without resistance, so that it, glowing itself in love, now recognizes the divinity and longs for it and strives for it with its whole will and its whole strength. Then the being is again in the state of freedom; it is no longer judged; it is full of power and light through love; it is neither bound on the part of God that it now must do, what is his will, nor does it stand under the will compulsion of the opponent of God. It can now use its own will, and it will, as result of love, which now completely fills the being, always be the same as God’s will, so that it now completely moves in divine order; that it cannot want differently than in accordance with the divine order and uses the power and the light for blessed work for God and with God – that it now can again take part in the redemption of that, what is bound; that it turns its love towards the still judged and so has an effect on it; that feels in it the desire for freedom and then also lets up in the resistance against God – who answers every such stirring through a relief of its state, by him relaxing the fetters; by him letting the outer form of the still bound spiritual always become softer and easier to dissolve and so always again helps the bound, to once again gain freedom. Dissolving and redeeming is the mission of all that spiritual, which already stands in the light, which is filled with love and for that reason can no other way than to constantly give love; to bring help to the spiritual, which is still suffering in slavery and can only again gain happiness, when it is free, as it was from the very beginning. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5497.
