Become aware of this that it takes the attitude over there into the spiritual kingdom, which you had as man to the world; that it still in exactly the same way clings to matter or despises it, as you have done it on earth; but that then an extreme agonizing state is its lot, when only matter was your thinking and striving, which it now must leave and for that reason arrives poor and miserably in the opposite kingdom, on the other hand ascends easily and freely and happily, when no relationships to earth burden it at all, when its thinking and striving was already on earth directed spiritually.

Serious admonition and warning of the transient.

3. February 1953. B.D. NR. 5594.

Become aware of it that everything is transient and that you yourselves likewise bear a transient body; that you must leave everything, so the hour of your decease from earth has come; that then just your soul remains existing, and indeed in that state, which you yourselves have given it on earth. Become aware of this that it takes the attitude over there into the spiritual kingdom, which you had as man to the world; that it still in exactly the same way clings to matter or despises it, as you have done it on earth; but that then an extreme agonizing state is its lot, when only matter was your thinking and striving, which it now must leave and for that reason arrives poor and miserably in the opposite kingdom, on the other hand ascends easily and freely and happily, when no relationships to earth burden it at all, when its thinking and striving was already on earth directed spiritually. Consider after all, you men, that the world can only give away to you pretence goods, which have no continued existence, but that you make yourselves to the slave of those, when you do not overcome them and recognize them exactly as pretence goods. The craving for matter, for earthly goods, is the greatest danger for the human soul, and this craving is extremely strong with men on this earth and constantly increases the closer it comes to the end. Men are completely blinded in spirit; their thinking is confused; they create and work for the world only and pay no attention to their soul, which must live in want and which still alone only remains, when everything else passes and has passed. And nevertheless men are persistently pointed to it, how useless their undertaking is and which lot their soul expects after death. They are referred to it, but they can just always be admonished and warned, but not forced to change their will and their thoughts. And they do not pay attention to these admonitions and warnings and also remain untouched by the announcement of the near end, because they do not believe in it. And for that reason God now and then expresses himself so obviously, by him taking from men, what they do not want to give up themselves. This is certainly a divine revelation, but also only recognized by few as such. It is a revelation, which shows men clearly enough the work of God, because they can do nothing against it, because they are not able to offer resistance, because they have to admit their complete powerlessness and for that reason could very well recognize that a higher power is active according to its will. And nevertheless they do not want to acknowledge this power; indeed they still deny it more likely and cannot be prevented, because they are in possession of free will. God speaks everywhere, and his voice can be heard by everyone, und still most remain untouched by it and just direct their eyes towards the world and its goods, and in the heart the desire for matter does not fall silent, why they would like to win back everything lost as quickly as possible, but let the soul carry on living in want. Nevertheless God does not let up in his effort, to sever men from matter. Still much is going to happen until the end, what serves to this end, and happy those, who recognize meaning and purpose of destructions and catastrophes and also him, who rules over creation; happy those, who recognize God in all events and call him for protection and help in all trouble. They will be helped, on earth and also in the spiritual kingdom; they will live, although they have died.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5594.
