He must fight against his desires; he must learn to despise everything worldly and therefore sacrifice what is dear to him – and when his power and his will it not enough for it, I apply violence – I draw him to me and take from him what he does not want to give up by himself. Read more:

Matthew 11:12:

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

An announcement by Bertha Dudde:

 

The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence.

23. March 1946. B.D. NR. 3722.

So let me give you an explanation in which way I want my word being understood: The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and only who uses violence takes it by force. Not a practising of violence with fellowman is to be understood, but only the violence over oneself, over one’s own desires, which helps man to the possession, to the capture of the heavenly kingdom in all magnificence. This cannot be given to him, but he must gain it for himself; he must wage a fight about the highest good, about eternal happiness. And as long as man stays on earth, this fight will have to me meant for his bodily desires, of which the fulfilment is always an obstacle for the reaching of the aim – spiritual ascent development. Who wants to win in this fight, he must suffer violence himself. And therefore he must fight with his opponent who will always put bodily desires, the longing for earthly goods, into him, who therefore entices him with worldly splendour and earthly lustre. To refrain from everything what is offered to him in such a manner, requires a strength of will; it requires violence at oneself, but by virtue of which he will very certainly seize the kingdom of heaven, because who sacrifices for my sake, he receives in richest measure, and what is offered to him, what I offer him, is truly of indescribable value. Never ever can the kingdom of heaven come to men who are lukewarm and lethargic, who do not wrestle but let everything go its course – who testify to their desire for the kingdom of heaven through words and wishes only, but who never ever put words and wishes into action. And therefore the time has come where more than ever violence has to be applied when the kingdom of heaven is to stand open to men. But in my love I come to meet all fighters – I help them in their fight against themselves, by me decreasing for them the temptations of this world, by bringing home to them the infirmity and transience of all that what they desired and what requires a hard fight against oneself to give it up – I know about the weakness of man and assess his will, therefore stand by him, when he wants to win me and my kingdom but lacks power, to apply violence against himself and his desires. And so I do not demand more application of violence that he is capable of – I let him go through earthly trouble to make the kingdom of heaven desirable to him, and so he wants to apply only the smallest violence, he will also succeed to seize the kingdom of heaven. But his will must always become active itself. He must fight against his desires; he must learn to despise everything worldly and therefore sacrifice what is dear to him – and when his power and his will it not enough for it, I apply violence – I draw him to me and take from him what he does not want to give up by himself. And when he devotedly resigns himself to my will, he has passed the inner fight. He has also applied violence and seized the kingdom of heaven with my support, which I deny no one who is willing and testifies this to me through his prayer. The kingdom of heaven is open to him, and when he has covered the short earth life time, he will be received by me into my kingdom of magnificence as I have promised, and he will be happy for ever. Amen. B.D. NR. 3722.
