But who has overcome the world, he seeks other treasures.

Deciding for the right Lord.

Strive on earth for God and his kingdom, and then receive as reward the gifts, which his love offers you in future in eternity.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Deciding for the right Lord.

26. June 1953. B.D. NR. 5708.

Choose your lord, as long as you walk on earth, but choose right. For the one you choose, he then also prepares your lot in eternity. For that reason this decision on earth is for you very significant, and still no one else can make it for you; you must yourselves choose the lord for you, to whom you want to hand yourselves over to for ever, and for that reason you must also know, what the lord offers you for it that you acknowledge him. You must choose between God and his opponent. You should not find this choice difficult, for each one strives for that, what seems to be the highest for him. And he will always give God priority, but for many men God’s opponent is their "god", who grants them everything, what they want, and whom they therefore give preference to that God, who is far from them, because they themselves have gone away from him. And so it is about to examine the goods, which are offered to men by those, between whom they are to decide. And also now those goods seem to men more tempting, which the opponent of God offers to them, while the spiritual goods, although they have eternity value, those goods, which God wants to give away to men, are not desirable for most of them, because they cannot grasp and cannot see them and for that reason the opponent of God will have more followers, who give away their vote to him, who acknowledge him as lord and surrender to him without hesitation. And you men are in this great danger; very particularly in the time of the end that you no longer recognize the right Lord; that you do not see or want to see his love and mercy and for that reason you go past him and hurry to that lord, who wants to ruin you. And for that reason God puts callers at the way, who loudly let their voice sound and warn you men, to go on the taken way, because it leads headlong towards ruin. And these messengers are ordered by God himself to bring you men light; to push you on the right way, to draw your attention to the many blinding lights and figments of the imagination, which flash on the taken way, but which are no right lights for that man, who seeks the right way and wants to walk it. These callers pronounce the right Lord, the God of love and justice, of wisdom and power, of mercy and of favour; they speak for him, whom they have recognized as their Lord and to whom they are devoted in love. Who is to seriously decide, he must also have loyal advisors, and these God himself sends to men, because he loves them and wants to rescue them. But as men adjust to the world, so is also their attitude to their lord. World men strive for everything, what is subject to the lord of the world; they are in the kingdom of the opponent of God and therefore also long for his treasures and consequently also for him himself. But who has overcome the world, he seeks other treasures, and he also strives towards that Lord, who has to award these spiritual treasures. And he makes the right choice, which he will never ever regret; which also opens for him the entry into the kingdom of God; he makes the right decision for eternity. And so you men now know that you take great responsibility as concerns your soul, which is now in eternity so provided for, as you as man on earth choose. You can acquire for your soul the highest happiness; but you can also plunge it into deep suffering, into darkness and agony, according to the choice of that lord, to whom you give priority, as long as you dwell on earth. It is only one, who can prepare a happy lot for you – your God and father from eternity. You must completely give yourselves him for himself and abhor his opponent, who plunges you into outermost dankness, so you do as he wishes. For that reason do not let yourselves be blinded and deceived by the goods of this world – they are passing and create no advantage at all for you in the spiritual kingdom. Strive on earth for God and his kingdom, and then receive as reward the gifts, which his love offers you in future in eternity.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5708.
