Free will. (After conversation about fasting and prayer)

15. and 16. Jnauary 1953. B.D. NR. 5578a.

The will of men is free. For that reason they are also to do, what they think to be right and fear no displeasure from my side, as long as they have me in front of their eyes and in the heart. Man cannot sin, so he seeks to serve me, even so his acting deviates from my will, for then he does not recognize my will, but does not act consciously against it. And I see on him and his work with pleasure. A particular power current comes from men, who completely bend under me, who listen to the voice of the spirit in them in deep humility and quiet silent prayer. And the world around can also feel this power current, when it opens itself to it. Therefore the will of fellowmen is required, if a power radiation is to be obvious, as also faith must be there, where the power is to become effective. If fellowmen can now get stimulated, to supply to themselves a power current through the conscious connection with the power source, so they will also experience the blessing, which comes from the power source. And only so the powerful proofs of divine power, the innumerable healings of the sick and spiritual awakenings are to be explained, which first presuppose the will, to stand in the favour and power current of eternal love. Unsuspected powers can in this way come to development, for everyone is accepted, who pushes towards me, and my love radiates down to every man, who seriously seeks me and obviously comes to meet me. But my love radiation means power, which now expresses itself so, as man hopes. I want to be recognized, and I therefore do not hide from those, who believe in my might and power and want to be touched by it. But I can only reveal my identity to those to whom I am no longer foreign and who prove this through intimate joining together with me through love and prayer. Who recognizes me, will also love me and want to feel me in this love. Who joins together with me in intimate prayer, he also does not face his fellowman foreign and loveless, with whom he seeks communion, and therefore the preconditions are so given, which allow an obvious work of me. And therefore I bless men, and my blessing means healings and strengthening, my blessing means life and light. Where many expect my power, many will receive power, for I always hand out according to desire. But the same can also take place at individual men, without that the mass takes note of it. The will alone opens the hearts to me, and each one can prove the will in another way. The will allows my obvious work or prevents it but what is not to mean that man just needs to desire a miracle, to also experience this miracle. The will, which causes me to a power expression, must be intimate and fully turned towards me, what also depends on deep love for me and for the neighbour. Then it will be complied with it in public or also in the quiet. And such will is also prepared to give, to sacrifice and to help, and that is his power and guarantee that I do not refuse to give myself.

Free will. (After conversation about fasting and prayer)

16. Jnauary 1953. B.D. NR. 5578b.

A community can lead to great blessing, but it also can easily become a slave to becoming trivial, always the will of the individual is decisive, whether a spiritual success is reached. Who now voluntarily seeks to fashion himself so that I myself can take residence in him, to him I will also reveal myself always to the blessing of those, who are in his surroundings and again have the same will, to get into contact with me. Each one is for himself, for his soul, alone responsible, and for that reason to no man can the work at his soul be spared, and this work consists of the laying down of the faults and weaknesses and the acquiring of virtues, which mark him to a divine being. This soul work also cannot be done mechanically through exercising formal acts, which for example lack love. On the other hand success can be increased, when man carries out a systematic self-training, when he consciously fights against desires and vices of all kind, when he renounces all that, what means a danger for him, and does that, what brings him closer to me; when he is abstemious and avoids that, what, as share of my opponent, can also hand him over to my opponent. Who has much cause to sin, is to keep out of the way of these causes; who fears a danger, is to avoid it, so he feels too weak to be able to resist. But who again and always again just practises love, he will become strong in spirit and also be a match for every temptation. For love is not to be replaced, and no matter how much man chastises himself. Love is the solvent of the spirit and its power, and where love is, also every desire is displaced; the "self" steps back and fellowman into the foreground, and the power of love causes miracles, which now understandably also have the power of faith as reasons, which can be so big in men of enlightened will that my spirit is caused to the power expression in excess. Everything is good, what leads to self-fashioning to love. That man, who can do without himself, fights his self-love and changes it to love for fellowmen, to whom he would like to supply that, what he himself renounces to help him. Then self-renouncement is based on love, and then it is blessed for the spiritual development of the individual, then man lives in love, then he voluntarily renounces that, what is still indispensable for the other. And I bless him for that but as I also bless every spiritual striving, every proof of faith, to live according to my pleasure. For who strives towards me, he also irrevocably reaches me, no matter which way he walks on. The will towards me is the guarantee that he reaches me. For that reason it remains up to every man in which way he fulfils my commands of love for me and for the neighbour, when it is just his firm will, to fulfil them, and he for that reason connects with me in prayer. Then I come to meet the one asking, then my spirit gets active in him, and his work will always be recognizable according to the degree of love, according to the love power, which fills the man, who wants to work for me and for my kingdom. Amen. B.D. NR. 5578b.
