A free being must also call a free will his own, but a perfect being must move this free will in divine order – it will therefore only then be perfect, when its will is directed right without compulsion – the free will of the being cannot be directed in a certain direction by force; the being can only be exposed to positive and negative influence and then decide for itself, which direction it wants to take.

Free will basic law. Test of will of the spiritual.

27. June 1953. B.D. NR. 5709.

The judged spiritual is to be redeemed; it is to become free once; the banished spiritual, which is to be understood under matter, is to again be put in the original state that it can freely work and create in divine order; that it is again a happy being, as it was from the very beginning But it must also pass a test of will in a certain stage of development, where it has again gained free will – the same test, which is was once to pass, but where it failed. A free being must also call a free will his own, but a perfect being must move this free will in divine order – it will therefore only then be perfect, when its will is directed right without compulsion – the free will of the being cannot be directed in a certain direction by force; the being can only be exposed to positive and negative influence and then decide for itself, which direction it wants to take. And this free will decision takes place for each being in the stage as man, why earth life is of greatest importance, because in this it is about the redemption from a tied up state, because God only gives an extreme short time to the being for the test of its will after endless long time of banishment, but which is quite enough for the last decision. Men must know, what this last decision means; they must know that this decision determines their lot in eternity. With right attitude towards God, with a life in faith and in love the teaching about it would also appear to be acceptable to them; they would lead their way of life according to the will of God and therefore also automatically make the right decision – but since they lack faith in God and love, since they do not establish the right relationship of the creature to the creator, they also do not accept an instruction about their life task; they lack all knowledge, they are however themselves to be blamed for. And since the freedom of will is an irrefutable law, man cannot be given knowledge against his will, which he rejects in free will. Free will is a basic law, which can earn a being unlimited happiness, but which can also put off the redemption of the spiritual endless long time, because the state of perfection cannot get created, but depends exactly on this free will. What has emerged out of God was in the possession of free will, for they were creatures of God, which he put outside of himself in all perfection – that the beings became imperfect, is substantiated with that, that they moved their free will in the wrong direction despite their cognition, despite their state of light. Free will could be directed positively or also negatively, and through the direction of its will the being was to now prove its perfection; it was to be able to choose itself, and it decided wrong. It strove towards the counter pole of God and lost its perfection. But God’s works cannot get lost; they cannot remain for ever in the distance to him; once they will give up their rebellious attitude towards God and again strive towards him. For his infinite love knows for eternity means and ways to lead back that, what once voluntarily turned away from him. But not one single means disregards free will, and not one single being can get round the free test of will. But the decision the being is to take in earth life s man. And with his love and an unlimited measure of favour God influences the will of man, without however forcing it to turn towards him. He certainly woos all his creatures with all love, but free will, the basic law from eternity, is never eliminated.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5709.
