Resurrection of the flesh.

13. July 1954. B.D. NR. 6000.

The will for truth guarantees right thinking and right cognition. You, you who desire to stand in truth, you will receive purest truth and need to fear no error and for that reason always be blessed, so you want to spread truth. What is still unclear for you - what gives you cause to doubt - present to me, so that I can instruct you and it may become light I you.

The teaching of the resurrection of the flesh - so as you men would like to understand it - is invalid, so you have already penetrated a little into spiritual knowledge, as soon as you try to come closer to truth and explain the meaning of all my words spiritually. For what I have spoken, is truth, which remains unchanged for ever - but the meaning, which you seek to read out of it, I have truly not put into my word. But to grasp the spiritual meaning of my words is possible for every man, who just seriously strives for truth. Who asks me myself for understanding, who therefore seeks to penetrate into truth, will soon recognize the spiritual meaning of the word lightly and clearly, and he will not cling to the letter - "resurrection of the flesh." These words are for you men synonymous with "life after death." For you men "life" means the same as "going along in the flesh", as long as your spirit is not yet awakened, as long as it is still foreign to you, what is actually to be understood under "life". Men, who do not believe in an after-life, think their existence is finished with the death of their body. For them the stay in their bodily cover means "life"; but they know, that they lose this cover through death, and they also do not believe in the three divisions - body, soul and spirit. For them only the body exists, the "flesh", and with its death the idea "life" is extinguished for them. Resurrection of the flesh means for them the resurrection of the body. They understand by this only their bodily cover, and it is a hard teaching - the "resurrection of the flesh", for which faith is demanded from men. Nevertheless, it can be a blessing, when man believes through this teaching in a resurrection - in a life after death. For with this faith he also changes his nature, and this change can lead to the awakening, to the radiating through with my spirit. And then he also understands the word "resurrection of the flesh." Then he grasps its spiritual meaning. Resurrection means to awaken from death to life - raising from a state of sleep - stepping out of darkness into the light. And so for the first time everything will come to light, what before lay hidden in the darkness of the night. It rises and it reveals itself - it comes alive, to testify. In the dead state nothing happens, what could be testified to, but what happened in life, in the state, as you walked in the flesh on earth, that emerges now, that reveals itself, that stands up, to now testify for or against you. But not, that the material flesh body raises itself again from the dust, to change you anew to new life. For this flesh body is just a mortal cover for the soul, which is immortal, which cannot die, but which can be spiritually dead at the departure from earth, which can also still awaken to life in the opposite kingdom - which can therefore also still rise there - when it finds to Jesus Christ, who now gives it "life". Also Jesus Christ received flesh, when he came to earth, and also this flesh had to suffer earthly death; also Jesus rose from the dead, to testify to you men, that also your life is not finished with the death of the body, that also your soul can rise to eternal life. But he also let his body rise as sign of the truth of his words. Nevertheless, it was no resurrection of the flesh, for his body was spiritualized. The soul had put on the spirit dress and all spiritual substances taken from the earthly body, because it was already completely spiritualized through his life and dying - therefore the material substances of the body, which are basically likewise spiritual substances, had reached their final purpose already on earth and could therefore join the soul and - because Jesus wanted it so - also become visible to his disciples to the strengthening of their faith. And since perfect spiritual is not earth bound, Jesus could raise himself into spiritual spheres - when he ascended to heaven. Also you men will have a body after your resurrection - a spiritual dress, and this will exactly be such according to the flesh, for "what you have sowed, you will harvest." If you have sinned in the flesh, so your soul dress will show it; if you have performed good works in love, so you will radiate and therefore also be recognizable. But your soul will never again put on the heavy earth dress, which was its stay only for the short earth time, to be able to cope in the material world. Who knows about the meaning and purpose of the material creation, about the development of the fallen spiritual through this creation for the purpose of ascent to me, he also does not need such explanations, and he still is also to be able to refute a teaching, which is nonsensical through wrong interpretation. But so you insist on wanting to speak of "resurrection of the flesh", then let the explanation be enough for you, that my word will rise, to testify for or against you. I am the word having become flesh - and I approach every man in the word. And so the last day has come, so you all must appear before court, so my word itself will become judgement for you - you, you wo received my word and have utilized it according to your will. The flesh will rise - for it was offered you as food; you were to "eat my flesh" and "drink my blood"; you were to receive my word hungry and let yourselves be strengthened. And you will have to take responsibility before me, how you have used my love gift. This explanation is likewise in accordance with the truth, and it is to encourage you, to use your life in the flesh on this earth, by you letting yourselves be fed and watered by him, "Who is the word from eternity, which has become flesh for your sake". Out of every explanation true wisdom will be shining towards you, even so you men have not yet penetrated into spiritual knowledge. And readily you will receive every one of my explanations, so you are of awakened spirit, for they will satisfy you, while the wrong interpretation of my word causes a will of resistance in you and also must cause, because this wrong interpretation has its start with my opponent, whose aim is, to confuse the thoughts of man, to push him away from truth and to take from him all faith in a continuation of life after death. Such a wrong interpretation also proves the spiritual low of men and also of those, who bring my word to men and have themselves not yet penetrated into the meaning of my word. The letter kills - only the spirit awakens to life. And this spirit you all are to request; you are to pray for enlightened thinking and strive for the pure truth, and your prayer will truly not die away at my ears.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6000.
