Creating man. Fall of Man.

31. October und 1. und 2. November 1953. B.D. NR. 5800.

The fallen spiritual needs endless long time for its ascent development and my individual creations also required an endless long time, which as it were also had to develop with the spiritual bound in it, to be able to hold in it always more mature spiritual. Again and again new forms were created and again and again a purpose assigned to these forms. The earthly creation therefore did not arise in a moment, but infinite long periods of time have passed, until the spiritual in all degrees of maturity found the outer form required for these, because the always increasing maturity also caused again and again new creations, which could receive it. But as long as the spiritual walked in the mandatory law, my creative activity meant: Creating earth as maturation station for the deepest fallen spiritual, which was to gain a maturity in it, which gave the free will back to the bound spiritual, which it had once abused.

But now also an outer form had to be created for this matured spiritual, so that it, in this form, could again test the free will. This work of creation was man, who insofar distinguished himself from all before arisen creations, as that he was endowed, next to free will, also with intellect and reason - with an ability to think, with consciousness of self and with the faculty, to be able to exchange through speech with his fellowmen, because living together resulted in the necessary preconditions for the test of will. The outer form of man existed already in the last stages in the mandatory state and had been destined for the receiving of innumerable matured soul substances, but these living beings still acted in the mandatory state, as the natural law demanded, and were consequently not responsible for their acting - they were only able to think in a quite low measure, however as gathering-place for the spiritual matured in endless long development time, likewise works of creation, which my wisdom and love had formed for this spiritual. But as men only those living beings were to be addressed, which were in the possession of free will, of the intellect and the consciousness of self.

And only now the plan of the spiritualizing of these creatures started - which now required that these beings - men - were instructed by me - which were to make use of their ability to think, their intellect and their free will according to these my instructions and which now by virtue of their free will could live and create on earth - which could fashion themselves to gods, but also completely offend against my instructions and my will and return to the depth, out of which they had risen. I created man. I gave an outer form to the spiritual standing in a certain degree of maturity, which was again in accordance with my wisdom and my love and also with the task, which man now had to fulfil. The outer form became only a living being, when the spiritual took residence in it - the composition of innumerable little particles, which now as "soul" gave life to the form. For the spiritual is constantly working power and was certainly bound during the previous stages, during the endless long course of development, and unable to unrestricted activity; but in the last outer form, in man, it can again become active. It can develop the power characteristic to it and increase it limitlessly through the joining together with me. My power was unmeasured at the disposal of first men; they were provided for in unusual way, because their test life on earth was to lead to that end, that they, as completely spiritualized, should lay down their earthly cover and return again as right children into their father house. But the test of will had to be put to them, which I demand of each one created being; the passing of this test of first men would have easily let all following men reach the last aim. (1.11.1953) In first men I had created beings for me, who despite their inadequacy - i.e. their lack of perfection as result of the defection from me - could after all reach cognition of me myself, who recognized themselves as creatures - who therefore through their ability to think and their free will could recognize and carry out my will. I had created beings for myself, to whom I, despite their distance from me, could make myself understandable, who could hear my word and could it let have an effect on them, what was impossible before, in the state of the bound will. Man therefore was the first earthly work of creation, which bore a fallen original spirt in it and was now supposed to help this original spirit again, to also return to its original state, to again be able, as free spiritual, to create and work in eternal uniting with me. That was the task of the first created man, and it remains the task of all men until the end, until the complete spiritualization of all fallen. It was a not too difficult test of will, which the first man had to pass. But to this test also my opponent had to be granted the right, to have an effect on him. And man succumbed to this influence. He revolted a second time against me, and this was the first Fall of Man on this earth - that Fall of Man, of which mankind knows, even so it knows nothing about the former defection of the spiritual from me. But only this explains everything. For the first man would not have been able to fall, when he would have been the first entity like work of creation out of me, which should have stood in the full possession of power and light, because only the perfect can emerge out of me. For no counter force would have then even been able to have an effect on him. But the reasons for his fall are in any case to be sought in the defection of the spirits and therefore in the still not fully matured soul of man, which indeed could prove itself, but did not have to prove itself. Man had indeed the intellect and free will and for that reason also to take a responsibility for his soul. And therefore man had to atone for his debt. My opponent kept the power over the spiritual embodied as man, and that means for every man a laborious earth life course, connected with fight and suffering, with the aim, to extricate himself from his power - an aim, which man can also achieve, because Jesus Christ came to help the human family weakened through the Fall of Man of Adam and redemption is therefore guaranteed for everyone, who acknowledges him as God's son and redeemer of the world and follows him willingly. The first man would have been able to build the bridge, on which then all his descendants could reach me - but since he fell, mankind still had to remain long in the bondage of Satan, until the redeemer came, until Jesus Christ descended to earth, to now build a bridge into the spiritual kingdom through his suffering and dying - through his death on the cross. (2.11.1953) The decision of the will, which was demanded of my first created being - of Lucifer, - was by no means to be seen as a command, it was rather completely left to the being, to turn his will in one direction, and the direction of his will was alone substantiated in his desire for power and autocracy. It was certainly aware having emerged out of me, however believed being able to also govern alone, because it did not see me. It recognized me as its start; but it did not want to acknowledge me. And I had not put this will into the being, but the being itself had so changed the free will given to it by me. That was the difference between the first fall of Lucifer and the Fall of Man of first man - for he still carried the wrong will in him, and for that reason I gave him a command, which he was to not contravene - a command, which he also could have kept easily, when the counter spirit would not have had an effect on him, which for that reason had a strong influence on man, because he was basically

still his share - because he had not yet gained perfection again, which made a fall impossible. A perfectly created man would not have been able to fall, i.e., he would not have been able to contravene this command, because the perfect spiritual in man would have kept him back from every God-adverse acting. But the creation of man was only the result of the fall of Lucifer and his following, for I had it otherwise truly not needed, to give outer forms as cover to the spiritual called into life by me. But the form of man held the fallen spiritual, and consequently the man Adam was already burdened with that former sin, but which he could push off, when he would have respected my command. It would have been possible for him to pay off the encumbrance - his fall delayed the return of the fallen spiritual to me again endless times, but it has become possible through the work of redemption of the man Jesus, who has done that without a command on my part, what the man Adam was supposed to do - to completely enter into my will and through a love life to join again together with me on earth and to gain full possession of power and light.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5800.
