Gift of prophecy.

17. October 1948. B.D. NR. 4463.

The gift of prophecy should not be mistaken; it should not be seen as prediction of earthly events to permit men a look into the future, but as that, what it really is – a divine enlightenment, a looking ahead of events, which stand in closest connection with the spiritual development of man and for that reason is characteristic of men in a certain degree of maturity, so that mankind is warned and admonished in spiritual respect. Who is called by God for this, to announce to men future things, he will never want to utilize his gift materially and strive for or make no earthly advantage at all. He will also himself only unwillingly voice those announcements, but driven by the spirit in him, fulfil divine will thus, that he passes on what the spirit announces to him. God needs men through whom he can express himself, and he is truly entitled to draw men’s attention to coming events, which can mean the premature end of the individual, because his love wants to give man a stimulus to remember his fare after death, because he gives such thoughts little space in the world’s hustle and bustle. A prediction, which is of spiritual content and is to prompt a change, can be believed at any time, and a prophet of this kind is not to be rejected or not heard. A spiritual looking ahead always testifies to the contact of the seer with God, because his opponent would never point out to men difficult sorrowful events; however every prophecy, which is divine transmission, always announces an approaching judgement. That a man now spreads such announcements out of himself, can only then be assumed, when an earthly success or motive can be proven, but which has to be ruled out with men, who make an effort to live in the will of God. And so a man puts himself consciously into the service of God, also his thinking will be directed rightly, because God needs men, who hand themselves over as organ, through which he can express himself. Moreover the light world constantly stands behind these servants of God and prevents all wrong influence, where a possibility is given through free will, to pass on announcements out of the spiritual kingdom to earth. For that reason listen to the prophets and seers – consider them as standing in the service of God – take their word seriously and believe what God announces to you through those. The gift of prophecy is a gift of favour to mankind, which also again first has to be used, if it is to become effective. Who believes in it, he will also lead his way of life according to God’s will; he will prepare himself and remember his soul; in consideration of the announced he will work on himself, and this alone is purpose of a spiritual forecast, which just testifies to God’s love and mercy, who wants to help man to turn their thoughts away from the earthly and towards the spiritual life – because the end is near. Amen. B.D. NR. 4463.
