Jesus. Becoming of the creatures to children.

10. and 11. June 1951. B.D. NR. 5148.

Represent me and my name before the world, so will I represent you in future in eternity, before God, the almighty creator of heaven and of earth, out of whom all creatures have emerged, to whom he gave again an independent life.

So also I, the man Jesus, was an independent being created by him, both according to the body as well as also the soul. I had gone out form the eternal original power, to pass a power development test in independent existence, which aimed to achieve a complete becoming divine, to finally again melt with the original power and to be able to create and fashion as such, to govern over innumerable original created spirits, over innumerable worlds and all its inhabitants. I have passed this power development test as man Jesus, for I used all abilities, which a becoming child of God has received through the infinite father love for its earth life, and directed the immeasurable current of power to me. I myself determined the eternal love to this alienation, because I desired it with the whole love power of my heart and eternal love could not resist me, because it gives itself to every man, who desires it. I spoke as man the words: "No man cometh unto the Father, but by me." I promised you men to ask the father for you, to confess you, so you confess me and my name before the world. For I knew it that I would achieve on earth the last aim, the becoming divine of me myself, and that I then, as being associated with the eternal divinity, I can also give to you, what you ask in my name, i.e. under calling upon my myself. For my father and I am one. The fire of eternal love has consumed everything, what still stood in the way of the complete unification. Body and soul had spiritualized themselves during my earth walk and had become the same substance as the eternal and infinite love spirit, out of which everything has emerged. As man Jesus it worked in me and I worked out of it and with it - but what worked, that was its spirit, the eternal, impenetrable love spirit, which is unlimited, which was therefore also bound in no form, which ruled the whole infinity, which was power and light, love and will, and which expressed itself in the creation of innumerable spirit beings.

I also was such a created being, a child of God, to whom all magnificence of his love was open, but which also had confessed him in free will, when the army of originally created spirits rebelled against him in the awareness of the fullness of power, which made it arrogant and brought about its downfall. I had emerged out of the love radiation of God, which powerfully drew me to him. I was freely put out as independent being, but again and again it drew me back to the original source of power, which made me extremely happy and which I still was not able to see. But I also saw the defection of the spiritual; I saw, how the divine love power dispersed into innumerable creations, and I knew about the purpose of this creation, which was to serve the leading back of the defected spiritual. And my love will became extremely powerful, to take part in the redemption of this fallen spiritual – to create possibilities for it, to again take up the point of view, which the spiritual had left voluntarily. I knew about the eternal plan of salvation of God, of the eternal love and producer of God-like beings, which wanted to extricate themselves from its love expression.

Voluntarily they came out of the association with God and forfeited in this way their divinity. Consequently they became powerless and lightless, and this powerless and lightless spiritual, which has fled the love of God, hardens itself to solid substance, which indeed still was spiritual in itself, but unable to creating and fashioning activity. But eternal love seized this substance and fashioned it according to its will to creations of most different kind. The immeasurable love of God was again at work, and his wisdom determined it, to place the spiritual, wanting to flee from him, into a process of change, which aim is the complete leading back of that spiritual to its start. This plan of salvation made me happy, and love for the defected spiritual persuaded me to help him, when it was to fail. I knew about my mission as man Jesus from the very beginning, because I myself offered me for it, but as I also knew about the joining together with divine love, which was to crown this my work. (11.6.1951) For the being is certainly created by God, by eternal love, but only, as put outside, to reach independence and to strive for the original source of love power in this independence and to be able to work in increased measure in this joining together with it, in the same principle, but with constantly increasing power. It is no dependent state, to work in the in the joining together with eternal love, and nevertheless a working together with it; the consciousness of self remains for the being, and nevertheless it is melted together with God, so it has reached the degree of perfection, since it is completely spiritualized through love. It has then become the image of God, and it still cannot be spoken of several gods, because the becoming divine means the same as a complete melting together with him. As being I once went out from God, but in God I found my aim; the created so to speak entered in free will that state, which is its purpose, which however can never ever be created as far as God is concerned, because perfection in this degree has the very same free will as prerequisite, or also – there is a difference between a creature and a child of God, the image of the father – which finds again in the complete melting together with the father its last aim. In complete free will I have striven for and reached this aim as man on earth, so that therefore the father and I became one and at the same time for mankind, which failed in the process of change, a help was granted, which affected all bound, which had become weak and helpless through the defection from God. As man I brought it this help, because the divine power and ability I gave up, so long, until the work of redemption was accomplished, to move men to contemplation of themselves, so that also they strive for the aim, which is meaning and purpose of earth life – the joining together with God through self-fashioning to love, which makes everything to God and constantly increases power, because it joins together with the original power, from which it once has taken its start. Amen. B.D. NR. 5148.



^ B.D. NR. 5157

Way of salvation. Way of love. Jesus Christ.

23. June 1951. B.D. NR. 5157.

The way of salvation is the way, which Jesus Christ has gone, the man Jesus, who fulfilled the great mission on earth, to pave for all men of the past, present and future the way to God, the almighty creator of heaven and earth. This mission was for that reason so important, because as man he had to fight with the same counter powers as every other man and he still brought the proof that it was possible to become master of them under the application of the right weapons. Because not as God he achieved this work, although divine power expressed itself in all fullness during his teaching activity; but to gain this power, he had to have waged this war with success as man. And so he also brought the proof for it that a man could gain the full possession of divine power and wisdom and also showed the way, which he himself has gone – the way of love, which leads to the joining together with God and therefore also to the possession of light and power in all fullness.

The man Jesus lived completely in the will of God, and his whole striving was directed to that, to get on close terms with him, recognized by him as father; the love for the father filled him and expressed itself in love for fellowmen, because his heart, which is full of love, can no other way, than to draw everything into the area of its love, because it is able to no other feeling opposed to love. Love therefore was the weapon, which he applied in the fight against those powers, which wanted to bring his downfall. Because love is power giver, so that he could never be defeated, because through love he so to speak fought together with his heavenly father against the enemy and for that reason had to gain victory. No-one can resist love; because it is the original power, out of which everything, also the opponent of God, once emerged, consequently is must be stronger than everything and also defeat him, who does not want to acknowledge it. The man Jesus went the way of love, and it directly led to God. He therefore has paved it and made free for every man, because each one can now go it with certainty, to reach the destination. He alone is the way to salvation; he alone is the only way, which the enemy of the soul does not go, on which man is safe from all attacks, because on the way of love he is accompanied by Jesus Christ himself, who is a safe leader for him and protects him carefully from a relapse or deviation from the right way. Who follows him, he goes with him at the same time, and he must also reach his destination. He has for all men fought out the fight with the opponent of God. But he also demands from those, who want to follow him on the way of salvation that they fight against him, i.e., that they likewise apply the weapon of love, with which alone they can beat him. And for that reason the way of salvation is no other than the way of love for God and for the neighbour, because through love man makes himself free from the enemy of his soul; through love he wins the power over him; through love he is constantly power receiver from God, and through love he establishes the joining together with God, eternal love himself. Then his soul has found healing from an evil, which sticks to it through sin, through the former defection from God, for which his opponent was to blame, because he was without love. Then his soul is again reunited with eternal love, because Jesus Christ himself has led it close to the original source of power; it has returned home as right child of God into the father house, because it has gone the right way, the way of salvation, which he himself has shown it. Amen. B.D. NR. 5157.



^ B.D. NR. 5192

Jesus Christ, the mediator between God and men.

19. August 1951. B.D. NR. 5192.

The man Jesus established the connection between me and men; he was on close terms with them and still also in direct connection with me through his spirit. He therefore was the mediator, over which men could reach me, because they themselves were not able to do it out of own power. You men must inevitably take advantage of this mediator Jesus Christ, if you want to find the way home to the father house, because he alone leads you and supports you with his help, where your power is not enough. No-one can eliminate him; no-one can reach the aim without him; no-one is happy without Jesus Christ. Who believes not needing him, he does not come to me for ever, because I myself sent him to you that he fetches you to me, and so you now reject him, you yourselves block the access to me, and you never ever reach the destination. He is my son, descended from the kingdom of glory and of light to you in the cognition of your trouble and your inability, to lift you out of the deep. He clothed himself with a human cover to approach you, but his soul kept up the connection with me; his soul also asserted itself to the body; it also determined it, to turn to me, and so I myself could move into this human cover in all fullness and through him speak to men; those men came closer to me, who pushed their way towards him, because they recognized him and the divinity dwelling in him. He mediated between me and men. He raised the fallen and brought it to me; he showed to all the way to me and offered himself as leader on this way. And therefore each one man’s return home into the father house is secured, who makes use of him as mediator.

And I saw this for eternity; I saw the endless distance of my creatures from me and the weakened will power; I saw the will of these creatures bound through my opponent and had to send a rescuer to them, who helped them to rid themselves of the chains, who led them back to me. I myself had certainly granted my opponent the power, to use his free will, but he abused his power and so had the beings in his power, which certainly had emerged out of his will, however out of my power. With my omnipotence I could not extricate the beings from him, but the beings could have voluntarily fled from him. But they did not summon this will and therefore a being had to be sent to them as rescuer, who opposed his will to the will of the adversary. And this being defeated him. It was Jesus, the man, who out of love for mankind took on the fight, who in himself brought love to the highest development and in this way drew me myself to him and now defeated the adversary with my power. He is to be seen as rescuer of mankind, as power imparter for the weak men longing for God, who could never reach him without help; he is the power giver, who has acquired favours without measure through his death on the cross and gives these now to all those, who call on him for help, who accept him as mediator between themselves and me and ask for his help in the cognition of their weakness and inability, to cover the way alone, which still separates them from me. Every man can fetch power from him, and with certainty will reach the destination, who resorts to him, because I accept each one, whom he leads to me, who has gone for you into death. Amen. B.D. NR. 5192.



^ B.D. NR. 5213

Jesus Christ. Redeemer – God-man.

16. September 1951. B.D. NR. 5213.

I have entered my kingdom, when I had accomplished the work of redemption. As man I dwelled in the midst of men; I taught them as God; I worked miracles as God and died again the death on the cross as man. This is a mystery, which is not so easily unveiled to you men, as long as you do not know about the development of each individual man; as long as you have not recognized the meaning and purpose of your earth life and understand the process of a man becoming divine.

Man as such is still connected with matter, both according to his body as also to his thoughts, as long as these do not turn away from the world and to God. And so long he will also not grasp the mystery Jesus - man and God’s son at the same time – and also not find understanding for the explanation given in all truth. But he can nevertheless be instructed about it, so that the spiritual in him begins to move and opportunity is given to him to develop.

I have worked on earth as God and suffered as man, because the divinity in me could not suffer, therefore the work of redemption for mankind had to be accomplished by a man, when it had to be of benefit to the whole of mankind. And these sufferings were and had to be so unspeakable great, so that they made mankind aware of the greatness of their guilt, so that the work of redemption was not assessed too little, even so men believed in the divine redeemer Jesus Christ. A man cannot measure the agonies and sufferings of my walk to the cross; the senses would fade away from him, so he could just win a right idea of that, because it was beyond human power, and still I endured them as man. Only a small share of these sufferings would have been enough to end the life of a man, for I felt them still much deeper than a normal man. But my body was enormously strong-willed through its spiritualizing and therefore took everything upon itself, what still could contribute to the liberation of mankind from its enormous sin guilt. I went the walk to the cross consciously; I consciously took the death on the cross upon me. What that means, you men cannot measure. I wanted to suffer, to redeem men. And for that reason I was spared nothing, and the most dreadful description of my sufferings and agonies would not nearly be sufficient to be able for you to imagine them. And for that reason the divinity out of me, out of the man Jesus, had to come out and to let him alone accomplish the work. For that reason also a dreadful fight preceded, which the man Jesus had to fight out before, to put himself outside of the divinity dwelling in him and to remain strong. The man Jesus suffered terribly, and that only out of love for mankind, which was in greatest spiritual trouble. And for the sake of this extremely great love I accepted the sacrifice, otherwise I would have never let a being suffer so, which was completely innocent and was on so close terms with me. I accepted the sacrifice and gave the man Jesus into the hands of his enemies and tormentors. For the work, which he accomplished, was valid for the whole eternity; it meant the redemption for the whole unhappy spiritual, which is to find the way back into the father house. The soul of the man Jesus recognized all this and as spirit being was willing to every atonement, to every help, which it could do for the unredeemed spiritual. But such a sacrifice a man had to make, who walked in the same weakness on earth, to show men a passable way to me, to their father from eternity. For that reason a highest light being incorporated itself as man and as man with all weaknesses and faults on earth brought the proof that through right used will and a life in unselfish neighbourly love on earth gets already a unification of the spirit achieved with me, the father spirit from eternity, that this unification earns man an extreme measure of power, that therefore man in association with me is able to work miracles , that he can penetrate into deepest wisdom, that he knows about everything on earth and in the spiritual kingdom and that he can himself, his body and his soul, completely spiritualize on earth through love. This proof could and had to bring a man only, otherwise mankind would not go the same way, which leads to the destination – to me into the father house. Nevertheless men without help were too weak, exactly because they lacked the will to love. And Jesus knew about this weakness of the will as result of former sin and wanted to help them to a strengthened will.

I certainly was in him, the man Jesus, but I did not influence his will; he acted and thought as man and still drew me in all fullness into his heart. For my original nature is love, and his extreme great love established the joining together with me. He became one with me. The man Jesus has certainly suffered the most bitter on earth, but he has gained the highest through his love. He descended as high light being to earth and returned again as God into the kingdom of light, for through love he is completely melted together with me, me who has now become visible to you men as saviour Jesus Christ, I who can now also get into contact through Jesus Christ with each one of you, because he has atoned for you the sin guilt through his death on the cross, through his indescribable sufferings, because his love for you was extremely great . Amen. B.D. NR. 5213.



^ B.D. NR. 5215

Love has accomplished the work of redemption.

21. September 1951. B.D. NR. 5215.

I died for you on the cross. My love for you was boundless and aroused in the man Jesus to a strength, which brought about the becoming divine of his soul, a state, which elevated him out of the human earthly sphere and he became one with me. Only such strong love was able to bring the cross sacrifice, for otherwise he would not have been able to withstand as man, when the power of love would not have strengthened him. He died as man the death of the cross, and still it was I myself, who has given himself on the cross for you men, for the man Jesus remained in love, until he gave up his spirit. Love therefore brought the sacrifice, and I myself was love. This is also a mystery and will remain one, as long as the earth exists and you men judge the work of redemption with earthly aimed senses. The man Jesus died on the cross. I myself came to earth to redeem you. An apparent contradiction, and it is still truth, which is so long incomprehensible, as you men cannot understand that I myself am love – that love is the original substance of the eternal divinity and that therefore love has accomplished this work, which was to redeem mankind from sin. But love was in the man Jesus, therefore a man died the death on the cross – but that this man was already divine, that the excessive amount of his sufferings proved, to which he did not succumb already before. His love for mankind was so deep that he desired to suffer, to help them. A superhuman measure of sufferings he has taken upon himself, which alone was already enough, to take from a human body the viability, but his love power kept this body so long alive, until his enemies had raised him, until they had nailed him to the cross, until the peak of his suffering was reached. He wanted to let men carry out the abominable deeds, to which my opponent drove them, to also show him that the power of a son of God also reached beyond death; that he was also Lord over death.

And the whole of mankind was to take note of his death, so it wanted to be redeemed. Through his love he was until the end connected with me, the father, but his frightened soul no longer recognized me; it sought me outside of it, and therefore Jesus called out the words: "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Only the powerful divinity had withdrawn itself, but love was and remained in him. Love certainly was power in itself, but Jesus no longer used this power to prevent his crucifixion, but only just to still be able to experience it, because he wanted to experience it, to serve me as man and to suffer and to atone for fellowmen. For that reason he has consciously suffered and also died consciously; for that reason he asked me for mercy for his tormentors, and in full awareness he spoke the words: "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit" The connection between him and me he kept up, for he could no longer break away from him, with whom he had become one through love. And for that reason I was him and he I; there was no separation between us two, because love, the original substance of me myself, also filled him completely; I therefore had to be with and in him, although I as power remained inactive, until the man Jesus had accomplished his work. He and I, we are one, and who sees him, he sees the father, because the father is love, and love was in the son. But love could not die, and therefore it rose again on the third day; and it also enlivened the body, which was completely spiritualized through the suffering of Jesus and needed no further course of development on earth any more. So love has overcome death – the divine saviour overcame Satan – the light broke through the darkness, and the way to eternal light became free. Amen. B.D. NR. 5215.



^ B.D. NR. 5217

Unfathomable entity of God.

23. September 1951. B.D. NR. 5217.

Nothing can make the nature of God comprehensible to you men, because there is no comparison on earth and because your intellect is not able to grasp the depth and unfathomable of the spirit, which rules the whole infinity, which is everything and without which nothing can be thought.

You men, as yourselves form, want to imagine every entity under a form, while however the eternal divinity can never be limited, therefore be a form, because it fills everything – the spiritual as the material kingdom, therefore the "formed" entity of God could only be the universe, the whole earthly and spiritual creation, which is likewise incomprehensible to you men and would consequently be no explanation for you. Every image, which you make of the eternal divinity, would always be limited and could therefore for that reason not be according to truth. God is a spirit, which certainly is to be mentioned as entity, which uses its will and its power in deepest love and wisdom for the work and rule in infinity. But this eternal spirit is everywhere; it is present in the largest earthly work of creation as in the smallest little grain of sand. It is in the whole universe, it is in the spiritual kingdom close to the light beings, for where it would not be, there would be no existence. It lights in the entity, which started in its love power, a flame, which again pushes towards it, and still the entity will never be able to fathom its place of start, because the eternal divinity is and remains unfathomable in all eternity.

But fulfilment has come to the longing love of the creatures originating from the power of God. The great spirit of infinity wanted to introduce itself visibly to its beings, to satisfy their great love longing, and it incorporated itself in the man Jesus – i.e., a form having originated out of its will and its power received the divine spirit in all fullness and could now, as completely radiated through by it, be and remain visible to the beings, which can bear his fullness of light, therefore have reached a certain degree of maturity, to not being consumed by the fire of eternal love. But the spiritual form of the saviour Jesus Christ is nevertheless no obstacle for the eternal divinity, to create and work in the whole infinity, to fill the universe and to be present everywhere. It is only a proof of the extreme great love of God for his creatures, which desire to see him that he makes himself visible to them as Jesus Christ, to increase their love and to be able to make them always and constantly happy through fulfilling. But the eternal divinity will never be able to be fathomed in its complete nature, for it is the highest perfection, which a being can never reach. As long as it has not found the joining together with eternal love and in this way wins light and cognition, a satisfactory explanation can also not be given to it. Amen. B.D. NR. 5217.

Struggle against oneself on earth.

1. October 1951. B.D. NR. 5224.

Also my life on earth was rich of fights and temptations, and it is wrong to assume that my divine soul has protected me from it; that my way of life could be nothing else than good, because I was God’s son, who has descended from above to earth to redeem men. My earth life as man was in no way different than with every other man, but the temptations approached me exceptional violently, because Satan did everything to prevent my mission. Moreover my soul was feeling unusually deep, so that it was both touched by the beautiful most deeply, but as it also felt the evil and the unclean extremely agonizing. It was receptive to every impression, and for that reason also the world approached me with its attractions and temptations so frequently, before my actual mission began. I had to fight a difficult struggle to remain victor over him, who wanted to possess my flesh, to make the soul unable for the work of redemption. And so my suffering began already long before; the body had to be mortified to reach the spiritualization with the soul. I was as man in the midst of men. And my being man meant so much, as to be tainted with human passions and desires, against which I had to fight , to become a place of residence for the divinity, which could tolerate no low desire in it. I was man – nothing testified to my divinity in the years before my teaching activity. As just man I had to wrestle, to fashion myself to the receiving vessel for the most delicious, what a man is allowed to ever possess – for the eternal divinity itself, which wanted to manifest itself in me, to be able to be a visible God to men. And I have carried away the victory over him, who seeks to rule you men, against which I crusaded, to redeem you out of his power. It was truly a difficult fight, for the man in me felt everything beautiful and was not allowed to possess it; the man in me loved life, for he loved his fellowmen and did not want to go from them. I was in full possession of power and could make everything subject to me, when I wanted it, and voluntarily I gave up everything; I overcame myself, my body and also the soul, which now and then wanted to rise up, when it felt how I suffered. I have overcome myself as man and so provided the proof that it is possible for every man, to become master of his weaknesses and desires, and that not divine power achieved this my victory, which then could never be demanded from you men, so I myself would have failed in the fight against evil and in the fight against lust. For that reason also you men can achieve the same, indeed you even have still my support, as soon as you call on me for help, as I have promised it. No temptation is too great and the tempter never unconquerable, so you make use of my favour. Because I died on the cross for your strength of will; what you lack of power and will, that you can receive from me, so you want to fight against him, who is your enemy and whom to overcome was the most difficult fight, which I have fought on earth. Amen. B.D. NR. 5224.

Christ problem. Visible God.

31. March 1952. B.D. NR. 5348.

You confess me, and therefore I also confess you before my father. What that is to mean you will find out in future at yourselves, when you enter into the kingdom of peace, where love radiates towards you, which goes out form me, where the father embraces you with his love, because you have found to him through Jesus Christ – because you received the power from the treasure of favour acquired on the cross and with this power have performed your change of nature and therefore have become love. But without acknowledging of my work of redemption you would never find the way to eternal love, for you yourselves are too weak out of your own power and need my help irrevocably, my favour and my power, but which I can only send to you, when you acknowledge me as redeemer of the world – a God’s son, which eternal love sent to you men to rescue you.

It is one being, which has emerged out of me, descended to earth and received me the father, in all fullness in it. It let itself be radiated through completely by my love power and could now also show the earth children the way to me, but which leads only over this being, over Jesus Christ. You cannot eliminate Jesus Christ, get round him and believe to also come to me on another way. You must join him; you must follow him; you must confess him before the world. Then you also securely reach your destination. Jesus Christ leads you to me; to the father he brings you, who has taken on form through him, who now introduces himself to you visibly in Jesus Christ, the redeemer of the world. You will hardly understand this, but only so long, as you still do not know that my original being is love; that I am a spirit, which fills the whole infinity and who therefore manifested himself in Jesus Christ to be a visible God for you men, in to whom you can put your trust like children; who is your father from eternity and also wants to be loved by you as father – I and he is one, for it was my infinite love, which drew me to my earth children, who rescued them from deepest night, out of the fetters of Satan through the death on the cross. That I made use of a human form, was necessary, because I as spirit could neither suffer nor could have offered you a visible work of redemption on the cross, as long as you yourselves could not see spiritually and only that was of impression to you, what human wise was accomplished. But also this human form was my work; the soul held in it was my work, only it was put out as independent to bring itself to highest possible perfection, which the man Jesus has also achieved on earth through his love towards fellowmen and his death on the cross. But love I was myself. He who now therefore held himself in him as eternal divinity, until Jesus ascended transfigured into heaven.

You men cannot separate Jesus Christ from me, for I was in him and therefore he in me – Jesus Christ was love himself, therefore he was also God, who is love in himself. And all beings, which fashion themselves to love, are also melted with me and will be allowed to see me in Jesus Christ, who has received me on earth in all fullness, who performed the melting with me already on earth and can no longer be outside of me for ever. Amen.

Becoming man and redemption work of Jesus.

8. April 1952. B.D. NR. 5356.

I have come into the world to redeem men and to open for them the gate to eternity. I came as man as emissary of God and was still God himself in this man; I gave a soul, a child of mine, an outer form to then join myself together with this soul indissolubly and to therefore take up residence as God in this outer form. But only few men recognized it, who held himself in this form; only few men also got in touch with me in their heart and were in this way able to also to recognize me in the man Jesus, for love gave to these few light; love recognized eternal love and worshiped it.

And so I also died on the cross. The human cover had to suffer death under all pains and agonies. But eternal love brought the sacrifice in this man Jesus; eternal love took all agonies and sufferings upon itself, otherwise the sacrifice would not have been done voluntarily. Love died for men on the cross, and therefore it was me myself, who has suffered for you for the sake of the extreme great sin guilt, which I wanted to wipe out. I as God could have certainly deleted this debt, obliterated it from the book of repayment; I could wipe out the debt out of extreme mercy; but my perfection prevented me of it, for also justice belongs to my nature, and it demands inexorable atonement for the sin guilt of men. You all would have to suffer unimaginably to pay this great debt and never ever be able to endure that on earth, what would have cleaned you from the debt. And for that reason a light soul, an angel spirit called to existence by me, offered to atone as man the great debt and to do satisfaction to me. And he has accomplished the work. He received me in his heart and so took up the power of love to make the greatest atonement sacrifice, of which a man on earth was ever able. He was my son – I his father. But through love the complete melting took place; he and I, we became one, for love so filled him that everything got spiritualized; that body, soul and spirit became one and could join the father spirit from eternity indissolubly. As long as you men cannot fathom love in its nature, God becoming man will also appear incomprehensible to you, and to solve this problem will also again only understand, who himself lets love flare up in him to a bright flame. To him alone it is understandable that eternal love has manifested itself in a man and therefore enabled him to let his life for the sin of men under terrible agonies, for love gave him power; I myself was love. I myself descended to earth and rescued mankind out of deepest trouble. Love paid the sin guilt, but the man Jesus did the atonement, because eternal love could not suffer, but help was to be brought to mankind and this help could only do a man, who was full of love. Amen.

Fall of the angels. Good Friday‘s message.

11. April 1952. B.D. NR. 5361.

You all, you who walk on earth, you have been seized by my love, and possibilities have been created for you, to be able to again enter into the original relationship with me; a time was granted you for this change out of a completely God-adverse relationship to the reunification with me. All favours were opened to you to reach this aim, and my never ending love helps, where you threaten to fail. But one thing also my extreme love for you cannot – to change your will out of my power. Your will is that factor, with which one must reckoned, which alone must accomplish the change and can just as well also fail. For your will is weakened through him, who is my opponent and would like you, whom he plunged into the deep through the sin against me, also keep in the deep and therefore obstructs for you the way to me in every way, who therefore would also like to keep your will weak and in this way unable to accomplish the change of nature. But the will is for that reason weak, because the being, which is still under his control, is also destitute of all love and for that reason can develop no power, for love is power in itself and would infallibly also confer the necessary reinforcement to the will. The entity, which belongs to him, is of completely weakened will and is not able to redeem itself from his rule over it. And I brought help to this entity.

Can you men now understand, what made me to ascend to earth and to bring rescue to you? I was the same in the very beginning, as that spiritual pushed into the abyss through Lucifer; I was come forth from the love of God as angel spirit and recognized God as the epitome of all might and power and glory from eternity. I stood as opponent of Lucifer to him, who had created us out of his love power. Also I could not see God, but my love for him was my happiness. But also love for the spiritual seceded from God filled me and let the plan mature in me to take part in the redemption of it out of the power of darkness, because I knew about the power of Lucifer and about the influence on the will-less spiritual. I wanted to help it in that way, which alone could defeat the opponent. I wanted to take up the power of God to be able to take action against him and to reach the goal to extract the beings from him and to so again lead them to God, from whom they went out. I wanted to acquire the power for this fallen and give it to them, so that they became of strong will and could free themselves from the power of Satan. The weakness of will is lack of love power, therefore the result of a loveless disposition. If I now wanted to impart a strong will to these beings, so I had to seek to move them to love and to again awaken their love first through my love. I had to free them from his power, by me paying the purchase price for the soul, which he held prisoner. He himself indeed never gives the consent; he never releases the soul, but the soul has now the power itself to free itself, by which he cannot prevent it, when it makes use of my power, which I supply to it willingly, so it is prepared to accept it, therefore to make use of the favours acquired on the cross. I have paid for all souls this purchase price through my suffering and dying on the cross. Each one soul can gain again its freedom, when it just turns to me – when it gives the right direction to its will, when it acknowledges me and my work of redemption and calls to me for help. To strengthen the will of these beings I died on the cross; I opposed an extreme great love with the power of Satan and defeated him, so that also the hardest fetter can blow to pieces, who puts himself at my side.

Two beings, emerged from the eternal love power, wrestled against each other. But I made use of this love power; I fought for God and with God; love filled me completely, and my earthly body became consequently the carrier of the eternal divinity; at the same time my light soul joint it with the body, and the unification had now taken place, which also every individual being created by him was to enter into according to purpose from eternity to now be able to work as completed in light and power and happiness.

The originally created spirit had deserted God; it received light and power in extreme measure and abused it to work against God. God’s power also flooded through it, but it used it in the negative meaning and by this always went away from God more and more. But to use the power out of God in his will also leads to the complete melting with him, which I as man Jesus reached on earth through love. Love is the strongest power and must also influence the will so that it turns towards God. And this supply of power for the will of men on this earth I have acquired as man through my suffering and dying on the cross, through unspeakable pains and extreme great agonies, and everyone can make use of this power, who acknowledges me and brings love in himself to development. Every man will want to flee from his previous lord and also be able to do it, who calls upon me as his rescuer and redeemer for help, for I do not let him fall into the hands of my opponent; I break his fetters and make him free. But I can do this only, as soon as the will of man itself strives for redemption – I cannot free him against his will. But my love is infinite, and it will extract every soul from the opponent; love will achieve that the will of every being once changes and turns to me. And for it I died on the cross that the weakened will of the fallen may experience strengthening, and therefore I have redeemed the world from bondage of Satan. Amen.

Works of creation are consolidated thoughts of God.

3. und 4. September 1952. B.D. NR. 5479.

In every smallest living being, in every little plant, in every little grain of sand I am present, and there is nothing, which is not animated by me; there is nothing, which is not flooded through by my power, which proves me myself. For nothing could be without me; nothing could remain existing, because only my power secures the existence of that, what came out of me. My power and my will has called into life, what arose as thought in me. My will consolidated all thoughts, and they became form, which has existence so long, until my will withdraws and the spiritual substance, the power out of me, is brought into a new form. The form can change, but the power in it never ever, it can only increase and let always more powerful forms become effective. Everything is power out of me, but in different degrees the power can become effective, and this depends on the purpose, which my wisdom has recognized as appropriate. For nothing is without meaning and purpose, what I let come into being, and where a purpose is to be achieved, my love and wisdom determines every process, which serves the achieving of the purpose. I always work and create in view of this aim, for before my eyes all phases appear like lightning from the beginning to the end. And my will and my power carry out, what love and wisdom recognizes as appropriate. Nothing is created arbitrarily, whatever exists in the universe; in deepest wisdom my plan is arranged, and my will of creation will never let up; persistently new creations will arise, because my immeasurable power wants to confirm itself and will always only busy itself so that an aim is achieved in positive meaning. For the power flowing out of me is love – something unspeakably making happy, building up and promoting, which can never let things come into being, which have a negative effect, even so a negative success is recognized apparently, but which, seen in the right light of cognition, still is and remains positive. For there is nothing, by which my power would be uninvolved, only a negative will can use this power wrong, what I allow, but also only then with the sure aim of spiritual return in future from me out of free will. For to change the negative will, everything is arisen; every visible work of creation has the purpose, to contribute, to turn negative will into a positive will. And for this purpose I also dissolve material forms, when they have followed their purpose, and form again new ones according to my will, but which must all serve in my will in a positive way – to lead the spiritual, which is of wrong directed will, towards the last aim, a complete change of will. (4.9.1952) But creations can also get dissolved against my will, and indeed by man, who, as dwelling in the last stage of development, is in possession of free will, therefore can now act both in my will but also against my will. The spiritual in man then does this under bad influence; it subordinates itself to the will of the counter power, which as itself of wrong directed will would like to have a destructive effect there, where my power has a building up effect. Such destructed creations release the spiritual bound in it prematurely, but which now again needs new forms to be able to continue its course of development. And now my will is again at work, to create these forms for it, directly or also indirectly, by men, who bear my will in them, busying themselves creating and fashioning according to their ability. The ability of being able to create and fashion proves the original power slumbering in them; it proves the start from me. But the original purpose of the creatures having once come from me, was another one, and this original purpose they must irrevocably fulfil, and no matter if it also takes eternities, until they have reached the aim. So has therefore everything been brought into being by me, but not all enjoys life; it seeks death, but cannot pass for ever, just remain in a so to speak dead state, but which is to be changed to life. But I am also in the apparent dead, in most solid matter, because it would not be visible for you, when my power would not be in it, only its effectiveness is so small, that this matter lets no change recognize for a long time; but since my power is never completely without effect, so it still manages to bring about a change, even so only in endless long time. In cases of letting up of resistance of the wrong directed will, my will also intervenes with increased power, so that therefore destructions wanted by God through natural powers give freedom to the spiritual in shortest time, which then continues its course of development in new forms of lighter kind. My will is always determining, and the coming into being and the passing of my works of creation is always based on a certain order, and all power over works of creation is taken from my opponent. But I gave free will to man. It can just as well be turned towards my opponent as to me. And for that reason my opponent uses his influence over man, by him seeking to determine him to destroy that, over which he has no power. And he wants to destroy it, because the spiritual in it matures and gets lost for him, who once pulled it into the deep, out of which I want to fetch it up again, so that it follows its original purpose, so that an extreme measure of power can flow through it and it is now unimaginably happy. Amen.

Miracle work of the child Jesus.

9. December 1952. B.D. NR. 5551.

I want to instruct you, over which you request enlightenment, for I want that you for the present possess a right knowledge, before you instruct your fellowmen, but what is your task, you who want to serve me. I want that everything is comprehensible to you yourselves, before you pass on your knowledge, for fellowman is often not so tolerant; he desires enlightenment particularly, so he doubts, and this you are then also to be able to give informatively.

The problem of the becoming man of God in Jesus gives cause for most of the questions, and indeed for that reason, because it has been explained up to now in such a way that there was just always more confusion instead of brightness. My earth existence as man differed from that of other men in no way; only that I gave space to the love development in the heart, where others increased their self-love and "desired", instead "to give". The love spark glows in each one man’s heart, but it can also flare up to a bright flame, as it can also get suffocated. But as a result men also differ from each other, for love presses on to everybody the stamp of divinity, while self-love is the likeness of my opponent, who himself was overbearing and as a result fell. Love therefore is the divine in man, which only appears as a tiny little spark at the beginning of earth life, but can grow endlessly.

The love spark was in the little child Jesus already recognizable, because a light soul had embodied itself in the child, which certainly left all glories of God behind in the spiritual kingdom, but nevertheless did not give up its love and this love power expressed itself also now and again, when therefore the spirit spark got into contact with the father spirit from eternity, what happens with every child full of love, but was supposed to be obvious in Jesus to men, so that they believed in the divinity of the child Jesus. The spirit work is not restrained in such a little child, it only does not appear or only rarely, because the intellect and free will of man must first strive itself for the work of my spirit in itself, what only happens consciously in the years, where he can make use of the intellect and the will in the freedom of thinking. The explanation for the miracles of the child Jesus, for the unusual happenings, is only to be sought in the high degree of love, because the soul of Jesus was from above, a light and love soul, which was now covered into a human form and also prevented in its, up to then, unlimited creation and work, to cope with the human outer form. Love was in a high degree in the little child Jesus – but also the earthly-human asserted itself – the world, i.e. my and his opponent, exercised his influence on this earthly-human, because this was granted to him because of the test of will. And now my spirit kept quiet, for also the man Jesus had to pass this test of will, and the work of becoming divine of his soul had to take place under the same preconditions as with every other man, although my spirit was and remained in him through his love. But the highest degree of love the man Jesus had to reach through his own will. And for that reason my spirit withdrew during these years; it did not push and drive; it left complete freedom to the man Jesus, until then the fullness of my spirit, which increased more and more through his increased love, announced itself as wisdom and power - as extremely great knowledge and miracle work. The man Jesus was chosen from eternity for this mission. A highest light being descended to earth; one of my children living in glory set out on its earth course, and therefore this soul had to already radiate through the earthly form of the child Jesus, and everything unusual of his youth was quite natural and comprehensible, but just as incomprehensible to men living in darkness, and for that reason a cover was spread over the radiating light in later years, and the actual mission started – the making divine of an earth man through love. I certainly could work through my spirit at any time in the man Jesus, because all preconditions were given for this; but for the sake of the mission of Jesus all divine-spiritual stepped back, and this mission was fulfilled by him as man, who took all power only from the love being active in him, which bringing to development was exactly as difficult as for every other man, because my opponent truly did not leave his influence unused, because the victory of Jesus meant the defeat of the opponent. But my opponent could not touch the free will of Jesus, and it was completely turned towards me. And for that reason he succeeded in the work, for his will for me sprang from his love. Love was that power, which is stronger than death and which for that reason also conquered him, who has brought death into the world. Love was victor and will remain it for ever.
Amen B.D. NR. 5551.

God’s spirit in the man Jesus. Following.

14. January 1953. B.D. NR. 5577.

You men can be full of the divine spirit, so you live in the following of Jesus. As man he was not different than you; his life was just a fighting and wrestling against the desires, which he felt like you, but wanted to suppress out of love for me. His life was a life in love for the neighbour, whom he knew to be in trouble and whom he wanted to help. What he accomplished, that you men could also accomplish, so you were serious to receive me myself in all fullness in you. His soul was certainly from the kingdom of light, but it did not recognize itself as such, before the man Jesus was flooded through by my love spirit. Now and then my spirit certainly spoke out of him, then the man Jesus spoke supernaturally wise and put fellowmen in amazement. But as soon as my spirit hid again, Jesus felt exactly as man as you and his spiritual state, now and then brighter, confused and frightened him; he was reserved, but turned towards me in always more intimate love, which then also gave him the light about his earth assignment. The man Jesus had to wrestle with all powers, which were against him; he had to experience and suffer everything, whatever a man can suffer, for he has gone for you men the way ahead, which you also are to go and can go with my help. I myself helped him with my love power, which he constantly requested and acquired for himself through his love life. And this unusual supply of love power enabled him to accomplish the work of redemption. Also you men can accomplish the unusual, so you yourselves would like to acquire my love power through love work; but you lack the will, but which was extremely strong developed in the man Jesus, however again only as result of that love, which he brought in himself to development. His soul felt, as soul of light, the great spiritual trouble of the world around him, and its will to help was because of this so strong and stimulated the man Jesus to work in love. Also you men see trouble around you, spiritual and earthly, and so you would like to help, also the power would be supplied to you – for the will is taken into account. And also you can be full of the divine spirit, because every love work could also earn you my love power and therefore my spirit become effective in you. The following of Jesus would truly not be demanded of you men, when it would not be to be fulfilled. For again and again it must be emphasised that Jesus as man has walked his way on earth and that all divine qualities were his merits acquired as man; that not the divinity determined him to his journey through life, but that the man subjugated the divinity – well understood: that the love of the man Jesus moved me to unbounded renouncement of love, because I am powerless against love, because I myself am love from eternity. The man Jesus has conquered me myself with me; he has done what I myself had to do – what my original nature demands - to let love power have an effect. And every man, who works in love, forces me to self-renouncement. But this compulsion is the most happy making feeling for me, me who would always like to give away myself, but can only give away according to my law from eternity, where love comes to meet me. Love must connect the being with me, then it is filled by my spirit, by my love power, and then it can have an effect in and with me, then man as gone the way of the following of Jesus, which leads to the unification with me.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5577.

Entity of God visible in Jesus Christ.

12. and 13. March 1953 B.D. NR. 5623.

The un-researchable entity of God will remain a problem for you men, as long as you live on earth, and also in the spiritual kingdom you will not be able to solve this problem completely, because God’s nature is unfathomable. For every being is as individual being an idea, while one certainly cannot deny God the entity, but he includes everything and also fills every individual being, both in the state of perfection and also in the state of insufficiency, but where the being nevertheless exists, therefore is enlivened by the power of God, otherwise it would have to pass. To be able to imagine the entity of God would be so overwhelming for the being that it would no longer dare to call him and to long for the joining together with God. The being could not bear the infinite size of his nature; it would not enjoy its freedom, because it would be afraid of the infinity of his nature, which to love it would now feel too weak and for that reason would just pass in reverence. But God wants to be loved, and for that reason he hides in his whole fullness. What started from him, are sparks of his infinite love fire, and these sparks are something equally entity like as he himself and for that reason also able to love. And God desires their love, and because of that he faces them as equal being in Jesus Christ – to be loved by them with all intimacy, for which he longs.

Also Jesus was a man, an individual being in all independence; also his soul was a light spark out of God, which did not want to go away from the eternal love fire and still took over a mission on earth out of love. In this man Jesus the love spark was flared up to a degree as rarely with a man on earth, and this degree of love was always increased more and more, because the desire for eternal love was so great that it could not resist and gave itself away to him that the love power of God flowed into the man Jesus, filled him and therefore he was now completely radiated through. The substantial divinity, which fills the whole universe, but only as radiated out power current, found a vessel, which gave love back to it and for that reason could always receive more love power.

And the man Jesus became divine, for he has received God in all fullness in him – the substantial divinity fashioned itself in Jesus to a visible God; it manifested itself. In Jesus a conceivable God was given to men, which they are to and also can love, when they are willing to love. Only in Jesus a substantial divinity became also comprehensible to them, which they can never ever imagine as power filling everything. A being, created by him, became the bearer of the eternal divinity only in this way that it nurtured the love spark in it; that it flared up to a bright flame and joined together with the fire of eternal love. The divine fire of love filled the man Jesus, but it did not consume him, because he himself had become love and could consequently also bear the power of love of God to an incomprehensible extent. (13.3.1953) Man as such is bound to a form – everything what is imaginable to him, is fashioned, and so also for men the eternal divinity has assumed a form to be able to be imaginable for them, although God fills the whole infinity, because everything, what is, is radiation of the power of God. Man himself in his original substance is also love power having gone out from God, which he fashioned according to his will, to as it were create a gathering station for the receiving of his inexorably flowing power of love. But the fashioning to such a receiving vessel man must do himself, to still be, as standing outside, connected with God most intimately. The man Jesus has done it. He himself has prepared himself to a vessel, which now uninterruptedly received the divine love power and was also consequently completely united with God, who therefore was now in him in his original substance. Love is God – and that love can be something entity like, you men still do not grasp, and you will also never be able to completely grasp it. Only through self-fashioning to love you can learn to understand the nature of love and its power, and then also the problem of becoming divine of the man Jesus will be solvable for you. But an extreme high degree of maturity belongs to it, to be able to grasp that God is power and still works as entity and uses his will in wisdom. And he will also not be able to penetrate into the deepest depth of the divinity and still be always able in his insufficiency to turn to Jesus Christ, who as God has now become an idea to him and to whom therefore all men must strive for, to reach God.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5623.

Bridge to the spiritual kingdom. Jesus.

30. March 1953. B.D. NR. 5640.

The bridge to the spiritual kingdom has been built by me myself, when I descended to earth to redeem men. And this bridge you all are allowed to walk on, so you want to follow me. And so understand right: Who follows me, who has selected me as his leader, he can and is to go the same way, which I myself have gone, and he will not need to fear to go wrong. And I myself as man also maintained the connection with that kingdom, where I had come from. At first indeed also to me as the man Jesus my origin was hidden; I lived on earth and did not know more than other men, but my soul sought God persistently; my soul always returned there, where my true home was – into the kingdom of the most happy spirits. And my love longing for God was so great that he came to me and soon also gave me information about my mission on earth. And therefore I also recognized already in earliest youth that I and also all men were just guest on this earth; but that in the hour of death for each one the spiritual kingdom again opens, which only was very different in its spheres. I knew about it as man on earth and could often take insight into these spheres. I saw both the great happiness as well as the extreme great agony of the spiritual beings, and my soul longed, but it also was horrified. This my seeing into the spiritual kingdom was a degree of maturity, which my soul had already gained on earth, and for that reason also no danger existed anymore for my soul, to enter the different spheres in the spiritual kingdom. I myself had already built the bridge through the transformation of my nature to love and for that reason could cross the bridge safely into the spiritual kingdom.

And so I want to give to you the explanation that love in you men can and will always build a bridge into the spiritual kingdom that it is then no longer you yourselves, but the spirit of God, awakened through love, which escorts you across, because it wants to introduce you into that kingdom, which is your true home and which offers you incomparable treasures, which you are allowed to receive in that kingdom. Then you can also unconcerned and safely cast a look into the kingdom of darkness, for then love in you will want to help you all, who need help. The bridge from earth to the spiritual kingdom is to be understood literally as also figuratively. I have prepared the way for you, which leads to God, which also you are to go in the following of Jesus. But I also have proved to you through my resurrection on the third day that I have overcome death; that there are no barriers for that what is the living in you, for the immortal; that your soul is allowed to and is to dwell at any time in the spiritual kingdom and that my spirit, so you have awakened it, escorts you into areas, which otherwise are impenetrable for you.

But it is different, where such connections to the spiritual kingdom are established without faith in me, without spiritual striving and without love. Then men enter a bridge unauthorized, which they therefore take possession of illegally to be able to look into that kingdom, which is hidden for them. These men therefore do not acknowledge me and can therefore never be on that bridge, which I have built though my death on the cross. But they also see a bridge across into the spiritual kingdom, a phantom, which my opponent buoys up to them, because he wants to lure them to him, in what he also easily succeeds – that he throws you into always deeper darkness, because in darkness there is no light to be fetched. But who desires light, to him also the light beings come to meet him, and they amply supply him with light, with pure truth, which can always only come from the kingdom of God, from the kingdom of eternal truth. Only disaster comes from the kingdom of darkness, form the kingdom of light only blessing; you are to close yourselves to the kingdom of darkness; but open yourselves to the kingdom of light, for from this kingdom I myself call to you: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heave laden, and I will give you rest. And when I call you that you are to come, so you must therefore also enter the bridge, which I myself have built from earth into the spiritual kingdom to level the way for you, which leads you upwards, to me, but which can always only be found through love.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5640.

Good Friday. Way to Golgotha.

3. April 1953. B.D. NR. 5643

The way to Golgotha was the end of my earth walk; it was the victory and the fulfilment – it was the most difficult and most bitter sacrificial walk, for it stood in its details clearly before my eye until the hour of death. I knew about all sufferings and agonies and still went this way consciously. But in exactly the same way the enormous trouble of sinful mankind stood before the eye; the immeasurable sin guilt and its effect lay on my shoulders like a massed together burden, and I knew that when I shook off this burden – what I certainly could in my might and power, mankind had to collapse under it and could never cope alone with the burden. I knew that this load of sin tormented mankind for eternities and never let it gain freedom and happiness. I saw these agonies of the whole mankind before my spiritual eye, and I took pity on the unhappy spiritual. For that reason I took off from mankind the burden of sin and went the way to Golgotha; I took upon me the unspeakable suffering to atone for the debt, which was so great that only extreme human suffering was enough for atonement achievement. For that reason I wanted to suffer and die for men and in no way lessen my suffering. You men will never be able to gauge the size of my work of mercy, for also you, you who believe in me, you know about my divinity, which could also lessen the greatest suffering – but I suffered and died as man. All agonies, which a man could just bear, were committed on me, mentally and bodily I was maltreated in the most wretched way; my tormentors did not just tormented the body, but uttered so terrible and hate filled words that my soul recognized them as expressions of hell and was tortured unbearably. What is just to be thought of as suffering, I have born, and that because of love for men, who should have atoned for their enormous sin guilt themselves and would have needed eternities for it. I as man Jesus could assess the suffering of these men, and this immeasurable suffering I wanted to avert, by me bearing, what to bear I was able. My love could not go past the great trouble of mankind; it wanted to help; it wanted to bring redemption to all oppressed, it wanted to beg for forgiveness for all sinners; it wanted to do atonement and for that reason bring itself as sacrifice to the heavenly father.

But men must acknowledge the done sacrifice and have themselves be redeemed by me. For that reason I shout to you in hottest love: Do not let me have brought the sacrifice in vain for you. Recognize that a great sin guilt burdens you, and want that you become free of it. Accept my sacrifice on the cross as having been brought for you; also you put yourselves under the cross of Golgotha; do not let my suffering and my death on the cross remain without effect for you. Bring all your sins to me, so that I can liberate you, so that you get forgiveness, so that the father may accept you for the sake of the love of his son – let all of you redeem yourselves through my blood, which I have shed for you men on the cross.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5643.

The deepest knowledge was revealed to Jesus. Following of Jesus.

8. April 1953. B.D. NR. 5646.

The act of creation as well as the fall of men into sin, the estrangement of the spiritual from me, is to always be portrayed to you men just figuratively, i.e. so that it becomes comprehensible to you, what made the son of man Jesus to have himself nailed to the cross, and why he must be acknowledged as God’s son and redeemer of the world. The degree of maturity of man also determines his power of cognition; only rarely can a man penetrate into the deepest wisdom and therefore understand my rule and work so as the man Jesus, for he was able to see through everything and so also my eternal plan of salvation, the plan of making divine of the once created. This deepest cognition as man was also only the result of his life in love, which therefore had brought about the making divine of him himself, therefore the man Jesus reached as it were this aim on earth, which I had set for the whole spiritual, the entities created by me. The reaching of this aim, the making divine of his nature, had to inevitably mean such a bright state of the spirit that Jesus could recognize, assess and see through everything – but at the same time also the endless far distance of men from me, which could never lead to that aim. Exactly that knowledge about it made him do something to bring back to me, whom he loved above everything, my creatures as beings, which had become like my original nature through love. Love for me and his fellowmen was the divine in him, which now also had him know about everything and so also about the only way, which was a help for that, what deserted me. But the man Jesus could never impart that knowledge to his fellowmen. He certainly could show them the way, to gain cognition, but never transfer his own cognition to his fellowmen. And for that reason knowledge about the creation and the defection of the spiritual is also not to be won scholastically by men; it also cannot be presented by me myself so that man has full understanding for it. It is the deepest knowledge, which alone only through love becomes the property of him, who wants to possess it. Nevertheless you men are directed in right thinking through my spirit, as soon as you are able for it, to not fall victim to those erroneous teachings, which veil my image for you or can also disfigure it, what would never deepen love for me. But real love can illuminate your spirit in one moment, and everything, what was still unclear for you before, arises with clarity before your spiritual eye that no world knowledge is able to displace this your knowledge. Then it is impossible for you, to still hold one wrong thought in you; you recognize as error, what is error; but you also know that you stand in truth, in right cognition, because it is that light, which flows into you from the original light, which cannot be brought to the intellect from the outside, but which everyone has inside of him since the very beginning. A man on earth rarely reaches that degree of maturity, which unveils everything for him, what was unveiled for the man Jesus, but real following of Jesus is the only way, which unveils the secrets for him, and who goes this way, to him also the work of creation, the fall into sin and the work of redemption of Jesus Christ will become comprehensible, and the cognition, the knowledge about my rule and work, about my plan of salvation from eternity will make him happy and deepen his love for me, I who just had my extreme great love working, to again give and receive love, and I who for that reason also never become tired, to woo the love of my creatures, until they show it to me by themselves as my children, until they have themselves made gods out of them through love.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5646.

Entity of God. Power.

7. and 10. June 1953. B.D. NR. 5694.

To address a power as entity is incomprehensible for you men, because you, as entity yourselves, believe being able to put all power under your will, as soon as your yourselves are producer of that power. And in exactly the same way you see the fundamental powers in nature, so you are believing, as standing under the will of God, who directs the power according to his will. And therefore a divine entity is probable for you, or also – God, so you believe in him, is conceivable for you as a being. He is for you more likely conceivable than just as power; but of a being you make yourselves a form for you according to your ideas, which becomes like you own form. And this idea is erroneous, because something perfect is never to be thought in a limitation. Everything, what is conceivable for you, has not yet reached the degree of perfection, otherwise it goes beyond your powers of imagination. You must recognize yourselves as still imperfect beings yourselves, for whom it is still impossible, to grasp the perfect; you must know that a limitation is only meant for the still imperfect, while the perfect is unlimited – and you will then also understand that it is for you completely impossible being able to imagine the most perfect, most unsurpassable being, to whom you impossibly can give a form, which is according to your limited intellectual capacity. For you men have still no standard for the unlimited, perfect, indeed even the beings of light do not completely grasp the nature of God, because his perfection is for no being within reach, because only in the merging with him can their own nature be completely made divine, nevertheless God still stands infinitely far above the individual being – because these individual beings can indeed completely be radiated through by his original substance, by love power, but he himself always is and remains the love power source, who diffuses himself into infinity. He himself is love – power and light. And love, power and light need no form, to be able to be effective, because this form could again only be infinity, which is filled by him, i.e. by love power and light. But as an endless great fire can spray itself into endless small sparks and still the spark in itself remains fire, so were the love sparks flowing out of him still the same as he himself in miniature – they were entities, which were an image of him himself; which were, in their original substance the same as their creator from eternity, but which could only see themselves and their equal, but were never able, to see the infinite entity of God, which certainly knew about him and recognized him as God and creator. And a being, completely radiated through by his love power, was in a certain degree of maturity so merged with him that it (10.6.1953) was also able to unlimited creation and work that it could accomplish the same as God, since the divine creation power is love and a being filled with love can therefore also create and fashion according to its will, but which is now also God’s will. The first created being, Lucifer, was so completely radiated through by the love power of God that it now itself was active as light and power bearer and created beings in great number, which all emerged in highest perfection, because God’s will and God’s love were also the will and the love of Lucifer and therefore only the perfect could be the result of this love will. But this had been created perfect, what means so much, as that the free will of it was not yet tested, whether it wanted to remain perfect or would climb down from the degree of perfection, when also opportunity would be offered for it. This test of will had to be made also by the first created being, by Lucifer, because the passing of this test only meant the highest degree of perfection, because only then a becoming divine of the being took place, which God set as aim for all creation. Lucifer failed in this test of will and with him a great following. But countless beings passed them and remained with God, whom they recognized and loved above all measure, although also they were not able to see him. But these entities still stood isolated, therefore outside of God, who certainly radiated it through with his love power, but for the complete merger with him imposed a condition, not easily to be fulfilled: Voluntary descending to the depth and from it paving the way up, which could be walked on by all fallen beings – a renouncing of the divine qualities, giving up of light and power, the signs of divinity, to now establish, out of the depth, in free will, the connection with God, which must be established, to again reach him. A being of light had to pave the way for the fallen, but the being had to itself renounce the light, to stand on the same level as the fallen, and then to strive up. Therefore such a light being engendered itself in the man Jesus, for the light being was filled by love for God and for the fallen, but as it also was radiated through by the love of God; therefore love engendered itself in the man Jesus, to redeem the fallen.

No matter how this process is explained to you men, you will never be able to really grasp it, because the idea "love" is still not comprehensible to you, because you cannot understand that love itself is some entity; that one always speaks of God himself, so the word "love" falls. That God himself descended to earth, when love took pity on the fallen – that only eternal love expressed itself through a being having emerged out of his love; that God himself in the light being moved into the body of the man Jesus as soul, that he descended from above to earth, to now go before the way as man, on which all beings of the depth could follow him, to again attain to light and to happiness.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5694.

In my name you are to ask the father.

9. April 1954. B.D. NR. 5925.

In my name you are to ask the father, so that you find favourable hearing of your requests. These were my words, which I spoke to men, when I still walked on earth. How are these words now to be understood, to be able to be taken to heart by you? - I have taught and lived on earth as man Jesus, who stood in such intimate connection with the father, that he completely accepted his will, that therefore the father himself spoke out of him, that he led his thinking and acting, that he just carried out, what was the father's most holy will. He could therefore also express the words: For which you will ask the father in my name, that he will give you. For not the man Jesus spoke, but the father, who was in him. No being could see me myself, for I am a spirit, which is incomprehensible for all entities, which emerged out of me, the father spirit. For who wants to see me, he would have to receive in him the entire universe, the spiritual and the material world - he therefore would have to be greater than me, to be able to grasp me in my infinity, in my superb fulness of light and power. This is possible to none of the beings created by me, since it is a radiation of me myself, a light spark, which would never be able, to imagine eternal light, the original source of all power as something limited, visible to him. But the eternal light and the original source of all power could make use of a form and manifest itself in this form, to now be visible to the entities, which desired to see him. And this manifestation took place in the man Jesus, who fulfilled the conditions necessary for it. My eternally unfathomable spirit embodied itself therefore in him, and so I became man - Jesus became Gott. For only the outer form was man, but that filling this form was God. You therefore now call God, when you call Jesus Christ. Understand right, so you ask the father in my name for something - so you call God in Jesus Christ. Then you acknowledge me myself or also - you acknowledge Jesus Christ; you believe in me becoming man in him, you profess me, because you profess Jesus Christ. My name has become for you the name of your God, and you can now also, in fullest faith, hope for the favourable hearing of your prayer, for I myself have given you the assurance, that you do not pray in vain, so you call the father in me, in Jesus Christ. I knew as man Jesus about the reaching of my aim; I new about my mission, of which culmination was the complete becoming God, so that eternal love itself could take residence in me. I knew about the complete melting of my body and my soul with the love spirit of eternity. For that reason, I could already on earth give you the assurance, that you find favourable hearing, so your prayers are directed in my name towards eternal love, for with it you announce, that you believe in me, that I myself have redeemed you from eternal death as Jesus Christ - and I truly do not let your faith get wrecked.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5925.

Death on the cross.

Good Friday 16. April 1954. B.D. NR. 5932.

An incomprehensible work of mercy took place through my death on the cross, and this work of mercy was directed at the whole mankind, at men of the past, the present and the future. I died for all men; I took the burden of sin of all men upon me, for all men are born burdened with the original debt. This original debt therefore made me suffer and die for men, because I wanted to absolve this original debt before him, against whom it was directed - because I wanted to make amends to the justice of God. You men are neither aware of the size of your debt nor of the depth of my love, which has accomplished the work of redemption for you. But no matter how my sufferings are described to you, you still cannot nearly gauge the measure of sufferings and pains, which I have undergone for you, because not only the body, but still more my soul suffered, which trembled before the sinfulness of men, which could not defend itself, when all powers of hell were against it and did to it, what evil they could just do to it. For my soul was clear and pure; the distance from it to dark men was enormous, and it was in the midst of demonic spheres, where nothing else than satanic work went up to it. My soul filled with light and love saw into deepest depth, and it trembled before so much sin and darkness. The body suffered likewise unspeakably, for what men could just think out of agonies and humiliations, that they did to me and still were glad about their abominable acting. Hell had been let loose against me; it was the most difficult fight, which ever a man had to fight - to remain victor through love, which was meant for all these unfortunate men, who Satan had under his control and to whom I wanted to give freedom again. I saw the extreme great depravity of my tormentors and suffered and died also for them after all. For I knew, that they were only the henchmen of him, against whom I fought; I knew that Satan himself was against me, and to defeat him was purpose of my work of redemption, to liberate mankind from his control was the mission, which I had undertaken voluntarily, when I descended to earth; my love for men was extremely great, and for that reason I suffered by a great deal, because my love was requited in a way, that only hate and love lessness spoke out of everything, what was done to me. But I wanted to suffer - because I wanted to absolve men - and consciously I went the difficult way to the cross; I drained the cub to the dregs. I allowed no beneficent faint, which freed me for a short time from the sufferings and agonies. I forced my body, that it held out, until my hour was come. For I wanted to suffer, because otherwise no work of redemption was possible for you men, than to absorb the effect of all sins and to impose on my body and the soul, what otherwise every man would have to bear himself, who would have collapsed under it. I suffered for the whole mankind and therefore had to suffer immensely, because the debt was immensely great. But you men have no idea of this my suffering of the walk to the cross and of the agonies of the dying on the cross, for you yourselves would collapse under the violence of the impression, if I would just let you have a look into those hours, which preceded my death on the cross - but in future you yourselves will be able to participate on it - in future it will become obvious to you, what I have done for you and why I did it. And you will glorify and praise me and be grateful for ever, that I have rescued you from eternal death, that I, through my work of redemption, have freed you from the hands of him, who wanted the death of your soul. And then also my love will become obvious for you, which is meant for you in all eternity.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5932.

God himself explains: Jesus Christ.

5. July 1954. B.D. NR. 5993.

It certainly should be possible for me myself after all, to destroy all reservations, and it is also possible for me, as soon as a man only desires pure truth - as soon as he therefore frees himself from his former knowledge, to listen to my voice only, what I announce to him. As soon as he seriously desires truth, he can also be assured, that I do not withhold this truth from him, because the desire for truth also proves the desire for me myself, I who am eternal truth: And who longs for me, to him I am also present, and I prove myself to him through the expression of my spirit, so that enlightening is his - that he now thinks truthfully or recognizes as truth what is offered to him. You men do not believe it, how easily you can get hold of truthful knowledge; you do not believe it, that you just need to turn to the giver of truth, to now also completely stand in truth. For everyone, who seriously longs for truth, he is also willing to love and able to love. God is love, and God is truth - God, love and truth are one. If you desire truth, then you also long for God - you seek the joining together with that, what you love. And so you love God and truth, the love spark in you is already flared up, the connection with me exists, my presence is secure for you, and I myself prove myself to you through my work in you - my spirit gives you enlightenment about that, what you would like to know.

But do you men want to hear pure truth? I must ask you this question, so that you also have the explanation, why so much error and lack of clarity is found among men and also there, where truth is to be spread. I can only give you men, so you want this yourselves, otherwise I would have to touch the free will of man and an inevitably imparted truth can bring no blessing. That I myself am prepared at any time, I have promised you men with the words: "I want to send the comforter to you, the spirit of truth, it will lead you into truth." You cannot fight my word. But where do you seek the fulfilment of my promise? - And therefore I have also said to you: "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." With these words I have therefore clearly emphasized, which is your aim on earth - that you are to fashion yourselves to gods, for you are to become my image, my children - what is exactly only possible in the perfection of your nature. And because you yourselves would have never ever reached the aim, because you were too weak, to accomplish this work of change, I sent to you one, who was to bring to you the proof, that it is certainly possible for a man to reach this last aim, the becoming divine on earth. He held up for you the life as an example, which brought success in for him, to find through love the joining together with me - eternal love. He became perfect, as his father in heaven was perfect, so that I myself could be in all fulness in him, in the man Jesus, who was only so long man, as this reshaping was still not accomplished. But his outer body then held me myself in him and who for that reason could, after the death of his body, ascent transfigured to heaven, because body and soul had made themselves divine through love. And you all are to follow him - you all are to become perfect, as your father in heaven is perfect. Do consider seriously these my words - that I demand something from you, and have also given you the proof, that it is possible to fulfil this demand. I am and remain for ever the highest and most perfect spirit in infinity. No being would be able to see me in my infinite fulness of light and power. But in Jesus Christ I myself became visible for you, why Jesus Christ really and truly is and remains God in all eternity. But I sent my son - a being having emerged out of me - to you to earth, who now, in free will, moved into a human form, and got this form so ready, that it could become a stay for me - that I myself therefore was now in him and one can certainly now speak of, that Jesus was God - that I myself have embodied myself on earth. But it can never be denied, that Jesus as man has brought the sacrifice on the cross for you men - that he lived and suffered and died as man - but that love in him brought the sacrifice, and I myself was love and that consequently I myself have redeemed you men from sin and death.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5993.

Immeasurable sufferings of Jesus Christ.

8. and 9. September 1954. B.D. NR. 6045.

What I have endured for you, that you cannot estimate, as long as you stay on earth; but in future it will be revealed to you, and only then you will comprehend my infinite love, which brought this sacrifice for you, to redeem you from the night of death. It certainly was the work of a man, and you men therefore consider my "death of sacrifice" on the cross as an act of human fanatism, when you do not believe in the mission of the man Jesus, or as an act of atonement for mankind, which has required the whole power and conviction of a man. But you do not know it, where from the man Jesus took this extraordinary power. You do not know it, that it was the infinite love, which enabled him to this sacrifice, and that he could take upon him an extreme measure of suffering through love only - and for that reason he took these sufferings upon himself voluntarily, to absolve the great sin guilt of men. The outer form of the man Jesus, in which I myself have embodied myself, declared itself willing to endure superhuman agonies, because love filled it - because I myself as eternal love wanted to bear everything for you, what otherwise you, as result of your sin, would have to bear throughout eternities. Love for you, my creatures having fallen away from me, could also not get less through your defection. And it therefore found this one way to win you back again: my love wanted to cancel your guilt and do the atonement for it itself - but what was only possible, when this love could embody itself in a man, so that this man took all sufferings upon himself, which you men would have to endure for the sake of your sins. You men had to expect death; you had forfeited for yourselves life in free will. And one man had to now endure this death for you, when you were to awakened to life again. (9.9.1954) He gave away his life for you, to give again life to you. And love for you made him do it, which was extremely great - for I, as eternal love, was myself in him. And the power of love has enabled the man Jesus to it, to endure the greatest pains and to go consciously into death. But which agonies he has endured, which suffering of the soul and of the body he has born, that you men cannot gauge, for he did not die for one man, but for all and he took the sins of all men upon his shoulders; he did atonement for all men, and therefore his sufferings were for that reason superhuman; they exceeded all imaginations, which you can make for yourselves of his sufferings and dying. And all this will be revealed to you in future; what you still cannot grasp today, that will touch you in future like an extremely shining ray, which would fell you to the ground, when not my extreme great love would keep you and let this cognition become happiness for you - to a happiness, which includes in it praising and thanking and hot counter love, because only now you can gauge the atonement sacrifice, the work of redemption of my love and mercy in its complete extent. But this ray of light cannot hit you earlier, until you have reached a certain degree of maturity in the spiritual kingdom, until the redemption through Jesus Christ has been carried out at you - until you have found forgiveness of all guilt through the living faith in him - until you can stay in my kingdom free of all guilt and get illuminated by my love power. As long as you men are unredeemed, also the death on the cross of the man Jesus is for you not of greater significance than the death of every other man, because you are not able to imagine the immeasurable sufferings, which cause was the great sin guilt of whole mankind. But the cognition will powerfully touch you in future, what the son of man has done for you, who gave me his body as stay, so that now I myself - love - redeemed you men from eternal death.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6045.



^ B.D. NR. 6088

Jesus was aware of his work before.

24. October 1954. B.D. NR. 6088.

I wanted to suffer for you and therefore prepared myself consciously for the death on the cross. I knew about the extreme difficult course of suffering, which I had to go to redeem you from trouble and death. I saw everything before me, and nothing was secret for me, what I had to endure, and I nevertheless approached it. I did not defend myself; I did not flee from the danger, but consciously headed for it. For I did not only see this course of my work of redemption, I saw the weakness and subjection of my creatures, which lay on the ground in greatest trouble and to which I could only bring liberation through my suffering and dying in the cross. Brightly and clearly stood everything before my spiritual eye, the cruel might of my opponent, the out and out distance of the fallen from God, which always increased. I saw deepest darkness on the one side and brightest light and happiness on the other. I came from the light and also wanted to bring light into darkness, but a bridge was needed for it; I had to offer something for it to have the right to lift up the tormented souls from the depth to the light - I had to risk my life to buy the life of the unhappy creatures. There was only this one way of self-devotion: - of the sacrificing of the highest, what I possessed - of my life, out of love for those, who were dead as result of sin. With my life I had to pay for the life of those. Brightly and clearly everything stood before my eyes, and for that reason I already suffered before unspeakably, because I as man was created with the same feelings as you - with fear of death, of the terrible sufferings and of me myself, that I might be able to become tired, that my strength might be too weak and that my fallen brothers had to further remain in great trouble, when I failed. But my strength grew the closer the day came, where it was supposed to happen. My strength grew as my love for unhappy mankind, which trouble I daily recognized more. And although I temporarily was overcome by a weakness in the face of that, what lay before me, so my will still did not get weaker, to complete the work, which I had started. For the human in me remained all the time connected with the father, he who filled me with power, so that my love always became more powerful and in the end I went full consciously into death, because I now also recognized, that death must be overcome and also this was my task. The way to the cross was bitter and agonizing, for I had to go through the deepest darkness, to open the gate to the light kingdom for all, who want to climb up from the depth to the light. But as man I had to endure the most bitter sufferings and agonies to help you, you who without my act of redemption, without my death on the cross, were irretrievably lost. And for that reason also my earth existence as man was tremendously sorrowful, for from that very hour, since the father revealed himself to me in my cover, I also knew about everything, what expected me, and I nevertheless went voluntarily the way to the cross, for not the father's will, but my love for the fallen drove me to accomplish the work of redemption and this love gave me the power to hold out until the hour of death.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6088.

Peace to men, who are of good will.

Christmas Eve 24. December 1954. B.D. NR. 6144.

Peace to men on earth, who are of good will. Remember that night, where the divine redeemer came to the world - remember his birth and also his death, his work of redemption, for the sake of which he descended to earth. Remember his extremely great love, which caused him to assume flesh and to then sacrifice himself on the cross, to bring redemption to you men from their slavery. He wanted to bring peace to you, the salvation of your soul. He wanted to save you from eternal death; he wanted to bring life to you. He wanted to let his creatures become children and to fetch them back into the father house. His extreme great love made him to descend to earth, to do rescue work in the midst of men, to gather his little sheep around to him, to rescue the lost from the claws of the wolf, which had broken into his herd, because no-one could stop him. All men were under the control of him, who was his enemy and for that reason the rescuer descended from above to snatch them from his power. But he must bring a sacrifice to the opponent for it, for he did not release his captivated, for he was entitled to them, because they had followed him voluntarily into the depth and like him had become sinful. They would now have to pay their ransom money themselves and were too weak to do it. But they would also have to do the atonement to God themselves for the immense sin of their former rebellion against God. Never ever this would have been possible for them, and therefore they had become slaves to the opponent of God for ever, when help was not brought to them - when God himself would not have taken pity on them. And he atoned for you the sin; he paid the ransom money for you. He died on the cross for your sins. He himself redeemed you men from sin and death. Only love could redeem you men, and for that reason eternal love embodied itself in a man, in a little child, which came sinless and pure to the world, and also remained sinless and pure, so long it stayed as man in the midst of men. The man Jesus took divine love up in himself, and this extreme great love for fellowmen let him accomplish a work of mercy, as it had taken place only one time in the world. He suffered and died the death on the cross, because love made him bringing the atonement sacrifice to God. He took all sins of mankind upon himself and did satisfaction for it. Love endured everything to redeem men. When the saviour came to the world, a great work of mercy was started. A ray of light fell to earth; it shone brightly into the hearts of those few, who languished in their trouble and called to God for help. The Jesus child radiated light, and some few recognized it as the Messiahs, who was announced to the world through seers and prophets. And they brought their tribute to the little child. They praised and glorified God, who took pity on them, and they found peace in their hearts. But they were only few, and also today they are only few, who remember him in the heart in love and gratitude, who sacrificed himself for sinful mankind. But also only these will find peace, also only these can be redeemed, who believe in Jesus Christ as God's son and redeemer and let the light radiate into their heart - who full of humility bend the knee before their saviour, who came to the world in the little child Jesus, to redeem men.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6144.

Faith in Jesus Christ. Reduced suffering.

18. Januar 1955. B.D. NR. 6168.

There would be no need on earth to be so much misery and trouble, when men would remember more their saviour and redeemer, who took the suffering of the whole mankind upon his shoulders and has suffered for it and died on the cross. He bore it for mankind - but it must believe in him and his work of redemption, for only that sin guilt can be regarded as wiped out, which is carried to him - under his cross in the belief and in the hope, that Jesus Christ has given his blood for it, that also this guilt is wiped out. But who does not believe in the redemption through Jesus' blood, his sin guilt still burdens that man, and he must do the atonement himself for it; he must himself bear all the suffering, which is the effect of his former sin - trouble and illness, sorrow and suffering. Jesus knew about it, that mankind has to suffer unspeakably, because of its great sin guilt. And his compassionate love took the suffering, the result of sin, upon himself. He wanted to clear it away through his suffering and a most painful death; he wanted to do atonement, so that men could become free from misery and trouble – so that they again found back to God in this freedom, from whom they had once voluntarily separated themselves. Jesus Christ died for all men. Therefore, all men can bring their sins to him. They will find forgiveness; they will become free of their sin burden, because the divine redeemer has taken off all burden from them and has burdened himself with it out of extreme great love. But it is certainly easily comprehensible, that he also wants to be acknowledged as redeemer of the world - it is comprehensible, that only he becomes free of his guilt, who believes in Jesus Christ as God's son and redeemer of the world - that only he finds forgiveness, who comes to him with his guilt and asks him, to also remember him, who therefore consciously places himself under the cross of Christ, to let himself be washed clean by his blood from all guilt. But how do men now stand towards him? Can one still speak of a living faith in him, in whom God himself has embodied himself? Mankind no longer wants to acknowledge him, except few, who belong to him. The work of redemption of Christ no longer means anything to men - and for that reason they all remain unredeemed, who do not acknowledge him so, as he wants to be acknowledged. And the sin burden masses together tremendously; men must suffer under the effect of sin, because divine justice demands from men themselves atonement, who do not belong to the crowed of the redeemed, because they themselves isolate themselves from him, because they do not belong to those, who Jesus Christ has redeemed from sin and who therefore do not belong to the redeemed, because they do not acknowledge the divine redeemer, therefore do not believe, that eternal love itself took the death on the cross upon itself, to bring redemption to men. No man is eliminated from the work of redemption - but who eliminates himself, he also cannot lay claim to the favours of the work of redemption, and he will therefore not be able to turn away from him a terrible lot, which certainly expects him in the opposite kingdom, when it does not affect him on earth already. For atonement must be done according to divine justice by everyone, who does not bring his sin to Jesus Christ, who has died for all men on the cross, to redeem them.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6168.

Good Friday. Love.

8. April 1955. B.D. NR. 6232.

Love is able to do everything - love bears the greatest suffering; it endures the greatest pain, for love gives power to this end. For that reason only love could do atonement for the enormous sin guilt of mankind, which required a just as great atonement performance for the sake of divine justice. For a being without love would have never been able to bear that, what the man Jesus has born for sinful mankind, to redeem it. Also the will to this end would never have been there, where no love was. And so also the work of redemption of Jesus and the becoming man of God is understandable, that God - as eternal love - embodied himself in a man, to accomplish exactly this work of redemption - and that consequently God himself let himself be nailed to the cross, to redeem men. Love took complete possession of a man - or also: A man developed in himself love to highest heat, and now the man Jesus bore the greatest sufferings and agonies with a love filled heart, to bring by this means redemption to his sinful fellowmen from their sin guilt. It was a work of extreme great love, for the agonies were immeasurable, which the man Jesus took upon himself, which he endured until the hour of death, fully aware and without the least resistance. In his fulness of power and strength, which was his own through love, he certainly could have ended his suffering. He truly could have also decreased the measure of his suffering, because the power of God was in him as effect of his love. But he suffered voluntarily, because only so men found redemption from the enormous guilt, which the slavery of Satan would have (had) brought in for them, from which Jesus wanted to free them. It were the most terrible agonies, which the man Jesus suffered in body and soul, but which were only bearable through love - because to love everything is possible. You men have no idea of the size of your guilt, as you for that reason can also have no idea of the measure of suffering of Jesus, who a pure man, as complete sinless being, suffered quiet differently than you men, for his soul felt still much greater agonies, which had to stay in a sphere, which completely contradicted its light and its purity. Only in the spiritual kingdom this will be comprehensible to you, when you yourselves stay in light sphere and only then can gauge, what it means, having exchanged these spheres against the darkness on earth, where men were burdened with sin and like devils immediately pounced on that pure soul - which let everything patiently wash over it, which did not defend itself, which took upon it indescribable agonies - just to help the enslaved souls tied up by Satan, to become free. Love of the man Jesus for his fellowmen was so deep, that he voluntarily went to them into the spheres of darkness, for only through love rescue could become theirs, only God himself - eternal love - could bring rescue to men. And for that reason "love " embodied itself in the man Jesus. The becoming man of God is only so to be explained to you men, that love itself descended from above to men, because otherwise no rescue, no liberation from the power of the opponent of God was possible. But for love everything is possible, but the work of redemption had to take place visibly for men - it had to be obvious for men, to which sinful mankind was able to do and what love was able to do on the other hand. A pure man had to die on the cross under terrible agonies, but this sacrificial death was voluntarily taken upon and out of love for men, who by this means find redemption, when they want, that the work of redemption has also been brought for them. For love died for all men; it wiped out the debt of all men. Love won the victory over Satan, who is destitute of all love and for that reason powerless, where only with the weapon of love is fought.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6232.

Suffering and dying.

9. April 1955. B.D. NR. 6233.

My suffering and dying on the cross was not to be evaded; I had to drain the chalice to the dregs; I had to take everything upon myself, if the work of redemption was to be accomplished for you men, which liberated you from all debt. Only the cognition of your pitiable situation caused me to this sacrifice, for my heart was full of love for you - and this love wanted to take the terrible lot from you, which expected you after the death of your body. Because I knew about this terrible lot, because I could let both the happiness of the kingdom of light as also the sufferings and agonies of the kingdom of darkness go past my eyes and because my love was meant for you as my fallen brothers, for that reason I sought for a way out, which could turn away your terrible lot. I myself took all sin guilt upon myself and with it walked the way to the cross. What was done to me earthly, that was as it were only the symbol of that, what the whole sin burden meant for me, an immeasurably pressing, painful and pulling down burden, which again and again threw me down to the ground and which I still bore out of extreme great love. What my body could just endure of pain, that I have taken upon myself, for I bore the sin burden for you; I wanted to do atonement for it, which you would irrevocably have to clear away - to which you would not have been able in eternity. I have suffered and fought; I truly have sweated blood; I have seen into all depths of hell, and fear and horror tore up my soul. I have endured all that, what you yourselves would have to suffer. And my love for you gave me the power to hold out until the hour of death. There is no comparison for these my sufferings, no man would have endured this measure. But I offered myself voluntarily to it, because I knew, that only so redemption could become yours from the fetters of Satan. I knew already before, what expected me, and I also carried this burden with me around; I consciously went this way, which final aim was the cross, but I suffered through this my knowledge unspeakably and could for that reason never be happy in the midst of mine. I saw the disaster imposed on the souls; I saw the lack of success of their earth walk, when I failed and did not bring the rescue to them from sin and death. And this knowledge strengthened my will, so that I submitted to my fate without resistance, which has been the purpose and aim of my earth walk. But until the end I had to wrestle; until the end the burden so tremendously piled up before me, that I felt my power wane and for that reason called as man upon God, to let the chalice go past me. But the power of my love was stronger than my human weakness. And the day of my unspeakable sufferings and of my dying on the cross became for you men the day of redemption of all guilt. And the knowledge about it let me take everything patiently upon me, so that in the end I could call out: "It is finished." And my soul could go back, from where it had come, for through my death the complete uniting with my father took place, from whom also I had once gone out.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6233.

Death and resurrection. Life.

10. April 1955. B.D. NR. 6234.

I have gone the way, which was pointed out to me, but which I had to cover voluntarily to reach the aim - to be completely united with the father from eternity. I went the way through death to life - through darkness to light. And I proved to men light and life through my resurrection on the third day. I certainly had to suffer death, but to now enter eternal life, for "life" is only in connection with God, who is in himself "eternal life". It is about far greater things, than you men without really thinking understand under the word "life". It is the becoming divine of that, what has been created, which was set as aim to the created, and to reach this complete becoming divine, the depth must be overcome; a way must be covered, which leads over death to life. And death is everything, what is far from God. The way to life is the way to God - and since once the created in majority "fell", it must now "rise". And it must return from darkness to light - it must climb out of the night of the grave, in which it has languished eternal times and step out into the light of the day. I have risen from the dead; I have supplied to you men the proof, that also you can rise to life, although you suffer earthly death. I have proven to you, that death is to be overcome, that you all can step out of the night of death into the light of the day, when you follow me - when you live, as I have lived on earth: when you lead a way of life in love. For then you strive for the approach to God; then the uniting with God can take place, and then no death can any more exist for you, because you have united yourselves with "life" after all, but nevertheless must lay down the earthly body, which is just an obstacle to a life in freedom and happiness. Earthly therefore you must die; your soul climbs out of the grave, which before kept it locked up; radiantly it enters that kingdom, which is its true home - it rises up from darkness to light. What happened to me, will also happen to you, and for that reason you need to fear no death any more, because I have taken all horror from it. I have risen on the third day; having become visible to my disciples, who were to see my spiritualized body, so that they themselves believed and could go into all the world and announce, that I live. But before my death on the cross men still remained in the depth also after their death; the way had not yet been made free for the entry into the light kingdom, and therefore I also had to descend to the depth after my death and also there build the bridge upwards, into my kingdom, and all souls were allowed to follow me, which languished in the depth. My love also called upon them to follow. Also for the souls in the depth the day of resurrection had come; also they could reach life, through my work of redemption. For death was overcome through my work of love, and all souls will rise to eternal life, which like me seek the uniting with the father from eternity.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6234.

Jesus Christ means everything.

15. August 1955. B.D. NR. 6333.

No-one is happy without Jesus Christ. And still innumerable men reject him, because they know nothing about the significance of his work of redemption, for also those men, who just confess him with the mouth, must be counted to these, for the right cognition about the love and mercy work of the divine redeemer would also let those men live in his following, which leads to happiness. And although in the whole world it is preached, whether his name is again and again presented to men as sole rescue anchor - only a very small part knows, what the man Jesus has done for his fellowmen and why he did it. For very few men on earth Jesus has become the rescuer from sin and death; those of awakened spirit know about the significance of the work of redemption, and who for that reason also recognize the great trouble on earth, who know, how far mankind stands from the one, who alone can give them a life in happiness. Jesus Christ is preached in the whole world. Many men are addressed by him himself, wo speaks to them through the mouth of awakened preachers. But few let themselves by captured by his words, so that they now no longer go from him and also dedicate their life to the announcing of his name. But most of them forget exactly as quick, as they get enthusiastic - a passing fancy, which brightly flares up and very quickly consumes again. For Jesus Christ does not become alive in them; he does not find the entrance into their heart, because they do not live in love. Love alone makes faith in him alive, but without love the knowledge about Jesus Christ and his work of redemption is no more than worldly knowledge without effect on eternity. For that reason always only few will feel so addressed, that they now become real followers of Jesus, that they find redemption from sin and death - although the divine redeemer leaves out no-one, to lure him under his cross. He addresses innumerable men and will address them again and again and admonish them to work on the soul; he will again and always again announce his love teaching. But he can only become alive in their hearts, when they receive and obey his love teaching. Only then they understand his love work and know, which trouble prevails on earth. For death is allotted to every individual, but a death without Jesus Christ means a terrible lot in the hereafter, a lot, from which it again only gives a rescue through the divine redeemer, otherwise the soul must vegetate in eternal darkness, in unhappiness. Jesus Christ means everything - but extremely little to mankind, for it does not take up much of his work of favour - because it does not recognize him. And it cannot recognize him, because it is not suitable for this, so long love is lacking - and it is cooled among men. And for that reason love must constantly be preached; he must be mentioned, who himself was full of love and has sacrificed himself for fellowmen. And so now man makes an effort, to fulfil the love commands, it will also become light in him, why Jesus has died for men - and he will himself take his refuge to the cross and call him, who alone can bring redemption to him from sin and death.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6333.
