But man must be on his guard against the letting up of the love fire.

Love spirit is protection against temptation and opponent of God.

Love spirit is protection against temptation and opponent of God.

24. November 1954. B.D. NR. 6118.

Always remain in the spirit of love. Only then you are invulnerable to the attacks of the enemy, for he flees from love, and he does not approach a man, who is always filled with love. But as soon as a little spark of unlovingness just becomes apparent in the heart of a man, he finds slipping in and tries everything, to still get hold of more space. He entices him to intolerance, to self-righteousness and to arrogance, to suffocate love in him, to then have a free hand and to make the will of man submit to his will. He will never succeed in that, where love is, for it gives him no target; it fights him and also has the power to repulse him. But man comes again and again into situations, where he is to prove himself, because he can only then ascend, when he fights or serves. And therefore he will have to overcome resistances; he will have to bend down to the helpless and help him up; he will therefore have to get active in serving neighbourly love. It he does this, then his fighting will become less, because then love gives him power to prove himself, when resistance arises for him. But man must be on his guard against the letting up of the love fire - when he does not want to hand himself over to the tempter, who is then immediately prepared to help and to completely suffocate the love fire. He is full of cunning and trickery, and he is an expert in setting traps for you, into which you get unsuspectingly, when the love light in your hearts does not burn so brightly, that you recognize him, and no matter how well he camouflages himself. For that reason one can only always shout at you: Remain in the spirit of love - for then you are in contact with God and do not have to fear the enemy. And you can also meet every temptation successfully with love - whatever it may be. When men want to humiliate you, when they want to annoy you to impatience, when they seek to awaken envy in you - the tempter is always behind it, and you will always beat and chase him away, when you remain in love. Then everything will remain without impression on you; then you will consider fellowmen just as sick souls, who devote themselves to the adversary to such attempts, and you will meet them with love and now and again also achieve it, that they take stock of themselves and give up unjust speaking and acting. For love is power and does not remain without effect, where it finds no resistance. For that reason you are to hold a love life up as an example to your fellowmen, which is often more successful than words, which are not proved through action. Remain in love, and do not forget, that you then remain in him, who himself is love - and that his presence is a secure protection for you against all attacks of the enemy of your souls.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6118.
