At the same time the warnings of their believing brothers will be uncomfortable and troublesome for them and that is why they will be hostile towards them to such an extent that a time of trouble begins for the believers for the sake of the name of Jesus, because his teaching will be made the aim of the attacks of the sinful people and because everybody, who confesses Jesus and his teaching will be robbed of that what is necessary for his life.

Sudden end in the midst of frenzy of worldly pleasures.

29. January 1953. B.D. NR 5589.

In the frenzy of worldly pleasures men do not pay attention to the signs from above and the end is approaching fast. The world has their senses spellbound; the spirit is completely befuddled; they respect no God and do not fear any might above them because they are content with the measures of the earthly rulers whom they cheer all the more the more worldly they are and promise them worldly improvements. It is a state like at the time of the flood; the increased joys of living prevent them from any spiritual thought and the fulfilment of their wishes and desires is sinful, because they are no longer moderate and enjoy unbridledly and through this place themselves completely into the hands of the opponent of God. And with these men he has his game in his hand; he lured with earthly goods and won them surprisingly fast. But his victory means death for men, the death of the body and of the soul, because the end is not to be long in coming; the end comes in the midst of the frenzy of the pleasures, unexpectedly and so fast that nobody is able to think about things und escape is no longer possible. They could well have recognized it that it is just before midnight because all signs spoke for it, but they plugged their ears and eyes so that they need not hear and see what they did not want to hear and see. And so the end comes surprisingly. When lust and vice have culminated, when sin gets out of hand that it can no longer be called to halt through warnings and exhortations of the servants of God - then judgement has to come that has been announced always and constantly. That is why you are to pay attention to the signs; an earthly prosperity will be recognizable that means uninhibited enjoyment of life for worldly people, who now seek to get whatever is possible out of the world. At the same time the warnings of their believing brothers will be uncomfortable and troublesome for them and that is why they will be hostile towards them to such an extent that a time of trouble begins for the believers for the sake of the name of Jesus, because his teaching will be made the aim of the attacks of the sinful people and because everybody, who confesses Jesus and his teaching will be robbed of that what is necessary for his life. But this time of trouble will pass for the good of the believers, because their faith will become stronger and stronger, because obviously a power from above is supplied to them and because they can hear the word of God directly or through his messengers. And that is the time that still lies ahead of you, that will come irrevocably and that has to be overcome, as it is now a matter of separating the goats from the sheep, because a clarification of the mentality of the individual has to come, because the individual has to decide for or against God and such a decision is supposed to take place in complete free will and that is why also an oppression on the part of earthly authority is allowed, but as also favours from above give unusual strength to those, who want to use them in faith in God - in Jesus Christ, the son of God and redeemer of the world. Men will still have to experience hard times, but blessed who feels life to be hard. Because the others will perish, because they did pay attention to no signs, because they fear nothing for themselves and therefore have to face adjudication on the day of judgement, when the end of this earth has come.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5589.
