Spiritual leaders on earth. Jesus Christ.

14. June 1955. B.D. NR. 6284.

Men need leaders on earth, for to find and go the right way alone, for it they lack the power of cognition; they are still blind in the spirit; their eyes do not recognize the way upwards, and therefore they would often go wrong despite their will to reach the right aim. For the depth exerts a greater attraction, to which they would also become a slave without help. I therefore associate leaders to them, to whom they can entrust themselves, but are not forced to follow them. These leaders know the right way exactly, because they come from above and would like to lead everything there, where it is light, where they themselves come from. They themselves are full of light, but do not know in earth life, that they come from the kingdom of light, for everything, what is man on earth, is also subordinate to the same law. They lack all remembering back, so that they remain completely free in the decision of their will - so also these leaders associated to men by me, who only distinguish themselves insofar from their fellowmen, that their whole striving is meant for the reaching of a degree of maturity on earth, while fellowmen have turned their striving towards the world and must now first be directed towards another aim. What the former seems to lie in their nature, must first be slowly bred into the others. And it is difficult both for the leader, to move fellowman to something, what is less desirable to him, as also for this man himself, to turn away from this desirable for him and to strive for goods completely unknown to him. But exactly this is the actual earth life test, which man has to pass, and that it can be passed, that does not need to be doubted, because I only demand that from you, what can be met. But at the instigation of my opponent everywhere, i.e. at all way crossings, leaders will offer themselves to the ignorant, because it is his aim, to hide the right way from men, that they go past it and strive towards there, where leaders "knowledgeable of the way" offer themselves but who are completely unsuitable to the leading upwards, because they themselves do not know the way. For that reason you men must now be on your guard and examine before each one wanting to lead you, whether he himself strives for the right aim. You certainly can do that, for a right leader must lead you past the cross of Golgotha he must first lead you to the cross, that under it you hand yourselves over to him, who has died for you on the cross. Out of the mouth of your leader you must hear of the significance of the work of redemption; through him you must learn to recognize the extreme great love and mercy of the divine redeemer, and you must now also recognize, who he was, who died for you the death of a criminal, and why he has done it. A real leader will be able to supply you this knowledge, and you are allowed to also follow him unconcerned. But a leader ignorant of the way leads you past Golgotha; he perhaps mentions so in passing the work of the man Jesus, to by this means awaken faith in his right to be allowed to lead you - but you will gain no real enlightenment about the significance of the work of redemption; you will certainly often hear the name "Jesus Christ" out of his mouth, but not differently, as if he has only been a historical person, whose life and teaching certainly had an ethical value. The deeper connections, however, are foreign to those leaders. And on it you can carry out the examination, which is the right way and which leader you are allowed to follow trustingly. For the way to the aim leads past Golgotha, and there is no other way upwards. But the divine redeemer himself sends the right leaders towards you, and who are not sent by him, are also no right leaders. And so you will also be able to judge, which one is the right teaching: only that, which puts the work of redemption of Christ first. Only he can think standing in truth, who, as himself redeemed through the blood of Jesus, is flowed through by his spirit and who for that reason is authorized and qualified to the leading of his fellowmen, because he knows it, that men must before hand themselves over to the love and mercy of Jesus Christ, before they can continue their way, which leads up to the height, towards me myself, I who as man Jesus have died on the cross, to redeem you men.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6284.
