You serve matter, instead that it is serving you; you let yourselves be ruled by it and become slaves of matter.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Serious admonition. Material attitude.

22. June 1953. B.D. NR. 5705.

You men have turned your looks towards the world; you just strive for earthly treasures; you seek to fulfil bodily desires; you only move in an area, where matter rules; but all spiritual you hush up. But your body is only the cover of that, what remains after the death of the body; your body is the stay for your soul for only a short time, and it is the soul, which is to gain maturity through earth life, but which you let live in want through your material attitude and which for that reason enters into the spiritual kingdom in a miserable state. The material world is the kingdom of the banished spiritual, which you as man indeed also inhabit, but which is your last station before your entry into the spiritual kingdom. As long as the spirit of the world is so strong in you that you always just desire material goods, that you create and work for this earthly world only, so long you are slaves of matter, where you are after all as its lord are to overcome matter. You just spend all your life power to strengthen the kingdom of the opponent of God, so you strive for the world and its goods. But you are to use the life power to gather for yourselves spiritual goods, to acquire treasures for eternity; you are to voluntarily separate yourselves from those goods, which are passing and are still taken from you once, which you cannot take across into eternity. You are to use your life power right and acquire for yourselves immortal goods, with which you can work in the spiritual kingdom, which mean a wealth for you, which will truly bless you. You are more than all material creations, for these were only created for you that they serve you for perfection. But you men fail to recognize their value; you strive for the world, instead to recognize it as being an obstacle to you for the spiritual development. You serve matter, instead that it is serving you; you let yourselves be ruled by it and become slaves of matter. And that means that you prepare death for the soul in you; that it is surrounded by a thick cover, when it enters the spiritual kingdom; that no ray of light can break through this cover and that the soul for that reason suffers indescribably, until the cover is dissolved, which can last eternities, when not even the cover hardens more and more and no prospect exists for the soul any more to get free of it. You men do not know, what you do to your soul, so you are earthly materially minded; so you just always strive to gain material goods. Recognize after all the transitoriness of that, what surrounds you, and remember that, what is immortal. Do not live your earth life in vain, for it is just given to you for the maturing of the soul, for the spiritual in you, which can only use spiritual food to develop, to be able to leave the body without cover, when your hour has come. Remember the soul and direct your senses spiritually for the soul remains, but everything earthly passes.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5705.
