He can stop the work of the spirit in man, as soon as he just finds one quality similar to his nature, which as it were serves him as bridge, to step into the thought world of man a quality similar to his, as there are: arrogance, envy, avarice, greed, earthly lusts, among which the lust of the flesh is the worst.

Passing on of spiritual messages. Love and wisdom. Humility.

27. and 28. April 1953. B.D. NR. 5661.

Only few men have the favour of divine instruction, and it is given to them, to hear the voice of the spirit in them, as soon as they are to again utilize the received spiritual material as teaching material, as soon as they therefore work as servants in the vineyard of the Lord and want to bring out the Gospel into the world. Every such spiritual instruction from above for the spirit in man is share of God bears the stamp of divine love and wisdom and can consequently be assessed a purest truth. The spiritual kingdom is the starting place of the received, because the transmitters of the messages belong to this kingdom and because the transmission is an act of the conducting and passing on of divine power and belongs to the happy making activity of the blessed spirit world. A divine power spark slumbers in man, which through lighting and constant supply extends more and more and in the end becomes one with the fire of eternal love. What man on earth lacks, is power and light and both is supplied to him with right way of life through power and light bearers, who are perpetually fed by the eternal power and light source and are therefore also able to perpetually hand out. This process you man must first understand right to then also grasp that light and power is equal to brightest knowledge and the ability to master everything on earth, being able to accomplish everything. The gift now to heal the sick or to work other miracles, is not to be learned, but certainly to be acquired through an opening oneself to the light and the power, which directly flows out of the original source of light and power, when man turns directly to God and asks him for it in firm faith, being able to also receive light and power directly from God and to utilize the received with a loving heart to the blessing of those, who are completely without light and power. Then there are therefore no limits set by God for the receiving of light and power. And man is initiated into all wisdom, and he will always move in truth, in right thinking and brightest cognition. But truth is offered to man so that it is also comprehensible to him; otherwise the knowledge is not much good to him, which he is now to pass on to fellowmen. And therefore God also enlightens the spirit of man; he also gives the power of cognition with the truth at the same time, the competence to judge and therefore also the ability, to recognize error, which often wants to creep in as truth, offered by beings, which are hostile-minded towards truth. But as long as men are on earth for the purpose of ascent development, light and darkness will fight about the souls, and where truth from God lights up as light, also darkness will dispatch their messengers, to again extinguish this light. And because men are to be trained up to light bearers, who themselves still dwell in dark surroundings, because earth is no kingdom of light, also dark powers have entry, and they work by cunning and trickery. Man is also exposed to their work, because he still is not perfect, but he can protect himself through calling upon God, which is always heard. Man can erect barriers himself, which are insurmountable for the powers of darkness, when he establishes the relationship with God so firmly that now his presence spreads such a bright ray of light that the dark beings fall blinded to the ground and are unable to approach man. Out of which it follows that God and truth must be desired so intimately that access is blocked to all error, for God respects this desire for him and fulfils it. (28.4.1953) But he also respects his free will. And for that reason the opponent of God can creep in, where a creeping in is granted to him. He can stop the work of the spirit in man, as soon as he just finds one quality similar to his nature, which as it were serves him as bridge, to step into the thought world of man a quality similar to his, as there are: arrogance, envy, avarice, greed, earthly lusts, among which the lust of the flesh is the worst. Just one hint of these faults needs to emerge in him, then he already gives a handle to the enemy of his soul, which he certainly knows to use. And then the thinking of man is also no longer free of error, because the spirit of God cannot have an effect, where the opponent of God is at work. A spirit awakened man will indeed rarely receive spiritual instruction in the state of such a weakness, where he allows entry to the opponent of God; he will then rarely establish the connection with God, when he stands in the spell of a passion, a bad habit, or a sinful desire, but one thing can darken his spirit at any time: spiritual arrogance a fault, into which particularly a man entrusted with a mission can get that he thinks being great and superior above his fellowmen and in such self-conceit now seeks to establish the connection to receive spiritual material. Then there is greatest danger that the opponent of God intervenes and instructs him, because man opens the heart for him, but which now receives no light, but is darkened. Spiritual arrogance has already caused the downfall of many men, for arrogance it the share of him, who is the ruler of darkness. Man remains weak and exposed to the temptations, as long as he dwells on earth, but so he turns to God in deep humility, also his protection will be secure for him. But he must always wrestle and stand in great desire for truth, and he must want to serve God. Then he has also always the beings of light standing by his side, who protect him, as long as he receives spiritual material, but who also prevent him from receiving, when he is in danger to succumb to the influence of the opponent. But as soon as a man offers himself to perform vineyard work out of love for God and fellowmen, his services are accepted, and then the light beings form a wall round this servant, who is now instructed through the spirit of God, for God protects his work and consequently also his servants from error, because he wants that truth is spread, because he wants that a light is brought to men, which is to illuminate darkness, in which mankind languishes, particularly in the last time before the end.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5661.
