He just wants, that you acknowledge him as God's son and redeemer of the world - that you believe in his mission, that you believe, that God himself was in the man Jesus and that his suffering and dying on the cross was only then allowed by God for that reason, so that mankind got redeemed from death, that the atonement was offered to God for a crime, which could not remain unatoned according to divine justice and which men could have never dis-atoned themselves.

Faith in Jesus Christ. Sufferings of Christ.

7. January 1954. B.D. NR. 5847.

To be able to measure the sufferings of Christ so, as Jesus has felt them, is possible for no man on earth, because unspeakable spiritual agonies accompanied the bodily pains, for which man has no understanding, as long as he himself is not spiritualized. For that reason also no man will be able to say, having endured equal agonies as Jesus, because the bodily pains were surpassed by much of those agonies of the soul - because Jesus bore the burden of sin of the whole mankind and he stood in the midst of the fight of the evil powers, against which he had put himself. His light soul trembled before this darkness, and his soul was still very much more tormented than his body. And these terrible sufferings are not conceivable for you men, although you know about that, and the size of his work of redemption you will only recognize in the spiritual kingdom, when you soul stands in the light and the incomprehensible work of mercy is shown to you. As long as you stay on earth, you are to just believe in him; you are to imagine the love of the man Jesus, who took an extreme painful death upon himself, just to help fellowmen in their spiritual trouble. You are to imagine, that he has suffered innocently, that he himself was the purest and most loving being on earth and that he through his extreme great love was also full of power and might - and still gave up his power, to suffer for you. You are to - whether you can empathize with the depth of his sufferings or not - put yourselves consciously at the side of him; you are not to remain far, for through his death on the cross he calls you to him. He just wants, that you acknowledge him as God's son and redeemer of the world - that you believe in his mission, that you believe, that God himself was in the man Jesus and that his suffering and dying on the cross was only then allowed by God for that reason, so that mankind got redeemed from death, that the atonement was offered to God for a crime, which could not remain unatoned according to divine justice and which men could have never dis-atoned themselves. You men are to believe it, that the mission of the man Jesus existed in that respect, to bring God's love and his justice into line and to so establish again the order, which had been changed through the former sin of rebellion against God. You are to just believe it, that every man needs the redemption through Jesus Christ, that the death on the cross of Jesus was not just a historic fact, but had a spiritual cause. You are to believe, that love descended to earth, to redeem you men. And you are to believe, that the man Jesus was so full of love for God and for his fellowmen, that therefore eternal love itself could manifest in him and only so all miracles and wisdom of Jesus are to be explained. You are to just believe, that the death on the cross of Jesus was more than only a historic event - and now draw the obvious consequences yourselves, i.e. put yourselves under the cross of Christ and know, that also you belong to those, for whom Jesus has accomplished the work of redemption. You are to acknowledge him as God's son and redeemer of the world. And your faith will then also bring in for you the redemption of your soul, for it will break away from the counter power; it will feel it, that the saviour Jesus Christ looks after it, for it will learn to love him and want to only live to his pleasure - it will avoid sin and do good; it will give itself away to him, who has brought freedom to it - and it will profess his name before all the world.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5847.
