You were unfree – for your soul was bound in its individual substances in the works of creation; the whole creation is as it were the fetter, which kept your soul imprisoned; the whole creation is the bound spiritual, which is still in the will resisting God and for that reason can expect no freedom so long, until it itself lets up in this resistance against God.

Mandatory state. Free decision of the will.

18. and 19. December 1952 B.D. NR. 5560.

Throughout endless times you moved in the bound state; all freedom of the will was taken from you; you were subordinated to the divine law and had to act so as God wanted it, as it had to go on according to the law of nature, to be in accordance of his plan from eternity. You were unfree – for your soul was bound in its individual substances in the works of creation; the whole creation is as it were the fetter, which kept your soul imprisoned; the whole creation is the bound spiritual, which is still in the will resisting God and for that reason can expect no freedom so long, until it itself lets up in this resistance against God. But once the time is come for all bound spiritual, where it is no longer in the mandatory state, where a certain freedom is granted to it, where it can think, want and act as individual being conscious of itself, without being hindered of it; once the time is come, where it has regained free will and can now use this free will unhindered. But then the great danger exists, that free will is used wrongly – that the resistance against God again ascends so strongly in the being that it turns away from God anew, instead of striving for him. The course in bound will through the whole creation was a result of the turning away from God; it was a result of the resistance once done to God. But once this course is ended, and then the freedom of will is given to the being anew, because it is to prove the giving up of its resistance against God freely out of itself, to then being able to approach unsuspected happiness. But if the freedom of will is abused, a turning away from God is carried out anew or the resistance kept up; then there is for this being only one way out – to again walk through creation in the mandatory state, so that the resistance may finally be broken. Every being must once pass the free decision of the will, and indeed in the stage as man, since it is gifted with the intellect and also the knowledge is imparted to it through God’s great love, in which the right directed will exists. If it fails in this earth life time, so God nevertheless does not give up the spiritual, but since he cannot direct it by force according to his will, since he cannot lead the being back by force to perfection, because this contradicts his law from eternal order, because something that has been divine and is to become again divine, can never be thought to be without free will, he creates again and again new possibilities to reach his aim; but always in the framework of lawfulness – to which also belongs a course through creation, which repeats itself, which keeps the entity so long bound, until its resistance lets up, what is certainly achieved, because all influence on the bound entity is withdrawn from the opponent of God. Over the spiritual, which is bound in creation, he has no power, and for that reason it also certainly walks up. But a decision of free will requires that also the counter power can influence the being, and because of that man in earth life is exposed to the besieging from his side; but at the same time great means of favour are at his disposal, so that he can truly make a right decision. Every man therefore has full responsibility for his will, for God does everything in his love, to make the decision easy for him. Also knowledge about his earth task is presented to him, certainly in different ways, but always so that he himself can express his opinion to it. (19.12.1952) He can think about it, but can also refrain from it, but then also not excuse himself having known nothing about his earth task, for only the smallest desire for it is fulfilled for him. Never is something withheld from man, what can contribute to a favourable decision of the will, but also never exerts a force on him. After the endless long course before in the mandatory state the earth life time is to be called extremely short, and it is still enough to do it that man can decide in the right direction; that he returns to God, whom he now recognizes as his father from eternity, or sinks back and again turns to the opponent of God in free will. And for the latter it is still a favour, when he is recalled prematurely, so that the opponent of God does not completely get him under his control. Then the soul can still come to cognition in the hereafter and free itself from the fetters of that power through God’s great love and mercy. But who also then still does not accept the redeeming help and sinks deeper and deeper, his will is again bound, and he must cover the renewed course through creation, and this so long, until the soul finally goes the right way, until it once decides in free will as man for the father from eternity, from whom it has once taken its start.
Amen B.D. NR. 5560.
