He will work with powers, which make the seemingly impossible for him possible - he will be able to heal the sick through the word or being able to clairvoyantly see into the future; he will possess deepest wisdom and therefore also be able to impart to fellowmen - or it will be obvious for him, what is otherwise covered for men.

Different gifts of the spirit.

31. July 1954. B.D. NR. 6013a.

The spirit from God expresses itself in a number of ways, for according to ability, according to spiritual maturity it can have an effect in man - and also the nature of man is determining, which gift of the spirit is granted him. To receive a spirit gift always requires the fashioning to love, therefore a change of the nature in free will. The spirit of God can only pour into a vessel, which is suitable for reception - a vessel, which therefore got ready through unselfish love work for the reception of the divine love ray. No gift of the spirit can be expected from a man, who has not yet carried out this reshaping to love. Consequently, the gifts of the spirit are therefore always just the effects of a way of life in love, but never gifts given arbitrarily. They must therefore be "striven for", what certainly everyone can do, but is only rarely done. In which way now the spirit of God becomes effective, that corresponds with the task, which has been set to a man shaded by the spirit of God in earth life, which God's wisdom well recognized as bringing blessings for mankind, but which still requires the free will of man. God truly knows it, who wants to serve him and how he fashions himself, and he therefore puts man on that place, where he can be active most effectively. Men in the time of the end must get shaken up, because they become completely superficial in their thinking and must therefore get impressed unusually, to get put up from their rest. But also, unusual phenomena have a quite natural explanation, but what seems natural to one, is incomprehensible to the other, because he is spiritually blind. These "blind in the spirit" are therefore confronted with a "seeing one", a man, who can break away from his earth constraint and as it were is raptured into the spiritual kingdom and who returns from this spiritual kingdom to earth with a gift, which cannot be won earthly. He will work with powers, which make the seemingly impossible possible for him - he will be able to heal the sick through the word or being able to clairvoyantly see into the future; he will possess deepest wisdom and therefore also be able to impart to fellowmen - or it will be obvious for him, what is otherwise covered for men. He will be able to speak in other languages - visibly the work of the divine spirit will become evident - but only then, when it is essential, to win the souls of men for the kingdom of God, for the spirit of God only works spiritually upon men, but never to promote earthly interests. Therefore, the owner of a spiritual gift will always be a worker in the vineyard of the Lord. Through this gift he will be a representative of God on earth, who wants to build up and increase his kingdom and has set this for himself as his life-work. Only through these willing servants of God his spirit will express itself, recognizable to fellowmen, although each one man can be filled with his spirit and therefore also recognizes brightly and clearly and is enabled to pass his cognition on to fellowmen. They can, however, always only be given according to their will, and condition to receive an obvious gift of the spirit is, that they want to work for God and his kingdom. For God wants to reveal himself through men to the whole mankind. God wants to get recognized in his work, and for that reason a man must be found as mediator, as long as God himself cannot go up to men, as long as unbelief and spiritual blindness completely eliminate this.

And so it emerges from this, that God himself reveals himself through his spirit, which expresses itself through a man, when it is essential to lead men to faith, to give them light, to open their eyes for the light, which radiates down from above onto men - when it is essential, to present to men the purpose of their earth life and to illuminate the way to the destination. All gifts of the spirit have just the one purpose, to have an effect on the souls of men in divine meaning. Then powers are triggered in a man, which visibly testify to divine flowing in - the flowing in of a power, which has its start in God - the power of the divine spirit.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6013a.

 

Speaking in tongues. Warning of false spirit.

1. August 1954 B.D. NR. 6013b.

Und then man will accomplish things, which do not seem natural to fellowmen, which far surpass the natural ability of a man - he will know about things, which otherwise remain hidden to men; he will be able to convincingly and comprehensibly enlighten fellowmen about things, which a man cannot fathom with his intellect alone - he will be able to enter areas, which are not accessible to fellowmen. He will have the power to heal the sick, to work miracles or also be able to look clairvoyantly into the future; abilities will become evident in him, which he has never developed in himself - he will speak and also be able to understand foreign languages, when this is necessary and serves the development of the soul of fellowmen. In every way he will be influenced by divine power - but mostly possess only one of these spiritual gifts, because the preconditions for every spiritual gift are others, but rarely are all preconditions found with one man. But each one of these spiritual gifts must fulfil its purpose, i.e., out of each one benefits must be able to be reaped from. The gift of healing the sick will, apart from the bodily recovery, indisputably also contribute to the recovery of the souls, because men learn to believe in the power of the spirit, which is caused by the renunciation through the strong faith of both the healer as well as of the sick. In exactly the same way also predictions of future happenings can move people to change their way of life, to penance and return, because these predictions always only concern the earthly effects of the spiritual low of men. The announcing of truth through the divine spirit also contributes to the awakening of faith and to the change of the lifestyle and is consequently again only to be assessed as spiritual factor of greatest importance. Only, what contributes to achieve spiritual successes, that can get described as the work of the spirit, for what has its start in God, that cannot be otherwise than full of light. It must bring light and uncover what is not clear; it cannot radiate still deeper darkness, than is already among men. But the spirit of God can also have an effect on a man, to take from him himself the state of darkness, to kindle a light in the heart of man - to uncover the covers of the soul, so that the soul cheers and rejoices and praising remembers its God and father, who gives it enlightenment. This effect applies more to the soul than to the intellect of man, why this spiritual gift does not need to be recognizable to men, but now and again touches the outer man so strongly, that he seeks to announce himself in incomprehensible words - an occurrence, which men describe as "speaking in tongues", but which always only concerns man himself - a spiritual gift, which almost every awakened can call his own, but which is only so strong in the rarest cases, that fellowman can perceive a change. For every man, whose spirit is awakened, feels the touch of his soul in that way, that his soul rises to God praising and thanking, that it devotes itself to him and that it finds inner peace and happiness. Then his self speaks with God in thoughts; then he speaks with God continually without words. And this gift of the spirit all men are to aspire to for themselves, to then also be able to stand up for God and his kingdom to fellowmen, to then he himself, as his co-worker, carry out the redemption work, which is blessed. But one is to be warned of the wrong spirit, for it also attracts attention, where it can slip in, where arrogance, self-satisfaction, need for recognition, still predominates in souls, which then also give that spirit the opportunity, to express itself in a way, which also seems unnaturally, but instead of light just leaves confusion and unrest - through states, which have a repulsive effect on serious fellowmen and just trigger joy and agreement with those, who themselves belong to that spirit. For that reason: Do not believe every spirit - and examine, by you paying attention to the gleam of light, in which strength it lights up. For God is light - and what starts from God, is light - and so the divine spirit gifts must without fail leave radiating light, otherwise they are delusions of Satan, with which he wants to blind particularly in the time of the end the eyes of men, as well as their souls, so that they fall into still greater darkness and are unable, to recognize the real light.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6013b.
