And in the coming time mankind will still be shaken strongly, for much is still to be taken from it, so that it learns recognizing the worthlessness of that, what fills its whole thinking and striving. Read more:

Attitude of world men to the Gospel.

2. September 1954. B.D. NR. 6041.

You will not transform world men, and no matter how much knowledge is at your disposal. They do not acknowledge it and remain in their attitude to life and to God. To bring the Gospel to world men will only then be of success, so they have recognized, that they only set the transient as their aim, and all earthly striving suddenly seems useless to them. Then also your words will meet with a response and make thoughtfully, and then a possibility exists, that they have the desire for constant good and that they seriously occupy themselves with the state after death. For that reason, it is often a blessing, when such men are hit by great losses, when they are made aware of the transience of earthly things and also of man himself. It is an apparent disaster, which robs men of their possession; very often exactly the circumstance, which helps a man to the change of his thinking and directs him to a quite different path. And exactly in the time of the end this means of violence must get applied often, and for that reason still many men will considerably be affected by it. Earthly success possibilities will fade away; the sudden death of fellowmen will trigger pains and horrors; natural disasters or accidents will destroy earthly possession. In every way the transience of that will be presented to men, what they desire and set themselves as their earthly aim. And individuals will learn from it; they will give up their earthly efforts and use their power for the achieving of spiritual successes only. But they will always only be few, because the lord of the world blinds the others and arouses their desires, so that they now still more embittered chase after earthly treasures and also get supported by him, the more they have become slaves of him. To preach the Gospel to them is fruitless. But it is about the few, who are still to be rescued, and for that reason everywhere attempts are to be made, particularly in times, where the decline and the transience are obvious. For the thing is always only to turn away the looks of men from matter and towards the spiritual, and this is then possible, when he is affected by losses of all kind. And in the coming time mankind will still be shaken strongly, for much is still to be taken from it, so that it learns recognizing the worthlessness of that, what fills its whole thinking and striving.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6041.
