WORD OF GOD ... through Bertha Dudde Significance of Jesus' crucifixion and consequences of rejection....

Jesus Christ died on the cross for the whole of humanity and humanity wants to d escribe this crucifixion as a minor point, as a sentence of execution for a nati onal activist or even as an entirely unlikely myth.... Therefore people deprive themselves of every entitlement to God's mercy since they do not acknowledge thi s greatest work of mercy, hence God's mercy cannot express itself in them either . As a result their will remains feeble, God's adversary aims to subdue human wi ll in his favour, i.e. the individual does not have the strength to resist this influence if he does not accept Christ's act of Salvation. Jesus' sacrifice on b ehalf of humanity can never be lessened by it. However, people who attempt to de value or to completely invalidate Christ's act of Salvation resemble the people during Jesus' time on earth in spirit, thus they also have to accept the same co nsequences, they have to prepare themselves for much destruction as was the fate of those who were hostile towards Jesus Christ on earth, who refused to acknowl edge Him as Son of God and Saviour of the world. Since those people were followe rs of Satan they allowed themselves to become so influenced by him that they opp osed all evidence of Jesus Christ in order to belittle Him and to suppress His s piritual accomplishment. And now humanity is striving to destroy what still testifies of Jesus' time on e arth and, in comparison, this resembles the same chaos as took place in those da ys. Spiritually and physically this chaos will express itself in complete destru ction which human will can no longer evade.... Christ's crucifixion was the only means to transform human thought on earth, i.e. Jesus Christ's sacrifice on beh alf of humanity strengthened the fragile willpower of the human being, enabling him to resist the opponent's demands with conviction without becoming overwhelme d by him. Thus the acknowledgment of God in Jesus Christ is at the same time the most reliable guarantee for the human being to detach himself from the adversar y. Jesus Christ's crucifixion has gained people a stronger will. The human being cannot apply this will in any other way since without Jesus Christ he would sti ll be subject to the power of God's opponent and would lack sufficient willpower to liberate himself. Thus the intention of the world to deny Jesus Christ is ex tremely significant as it lessens the strength of resistance and constantly incr eases the influence of God's adversary. Humanity's conduct therefore reveals eve r more heartlessness as a result of this influence which can only be offset and neutralised by Christ's crucifixion. The souls of human beings are in utmost dan ger because they will fail when they are expected to confess Jesus Christ before the world. Only the belief in Christ's crucifixion enables people to do so beca use only then is their will strong enough to overcome every resistance. And Jesu s Christ paid for this strength of will for human beings with His death on the c ross.... He has released them from the adversary's captivity if they believe in Him.... Amen Did Jesus Christ redeem all people, or are all people redeemed?.... People read the Word but they do not understand its meaning, and thus misguided teachings due to false interpretations are given by those who want to serve Me, if they do not sincerely unite with Me and first ask for an explanation and, whe n they receive it, accept it without resistance. People single-mindedly adhere t o My Word that I have delivered mankind from sin by My crucifixion.... But they do not comprehend the essence of the Word, they do not comprehend the significan ce of the act of Salvation. Consequently they do not understand what the human b eing has to do himself in order to join the flock of those who have been deliver ed from their guilt of sin by My blood. I have died for all human beings.... providing they want to accept My act of Sal

vation.... I have not imposed any restrictions, but people set limitations when they do not acknowledge My act of Salvation. And these people exclude themselves from the circle of those for whom I have died on the cross. Consequently, only the sins of those can be forgiven who allow themselves to be saved through their faith in Me and My death on the cross, whereas the sins of those who reject Me and My act of Salvation are not forgiven, because they do not allow themselves t o be purified by My blood, and because they do not want to belong to those for w hom I have died. Once again human free will is decisive, and I abide by this fre e will. If people's guilt of sin were forgiven without faith in Me and My act of love, then the human being would be placed into a state of freedom against his own will.... But this is in opposition to My order because it counteracts My jus tice as well as My love, since the person will not use this state to bond with M e nor will he ever regret his sin.... My Word is truth, and no untruth can ever be found in the fact that I have died for all human beings, that I have redeemed all people from their sins.... But th eir free will has to decide whether they want to be redeemed, whether they want to accept My work of love, because I do not determine the will.... Therefore all of humanity could be free of sin if it believed in My act of Salvation, just as it is and will remain in deepest darkness and subject to their sins if it rejec ts Me as Redeemer of humanity. And for this reason most of humanity now lives in sin, it is without forgiveness because it no longer acknowledges Me, and thus M y act of Salvation has become ineffective for humanity. Hence the `forgiveness of sin' should not be misunderstood, it is not applicable to those who are completely apart from Me; not that I Am pushing them away, ins tead they are distancing themselves from Me, they are fleeing from Me, Who is ap proaching them and constantly asks for their souls. I provide them with a gift o f grace which liberates them from their sin and their guilt, but if they reject this it has no effect on them because they belong to those who are fighting on b ehalf of My adversary and who are therefore still controlled by him until they a llow themselves to be saved by Me.... And thus it is wrong to describe My act of Salvation in a way which suggests that all people are beneficiaries of that whi ch their free will could certainly acquire; but which free will can also throw a way by rejecting it and by being totally without faith. Only the person who acce pts My gift of grace will also become free of his sins, because I have carried h is guilt for him, I have suffered for him and accepted the crucifixion. Although I have died for everyone, not everyone accepts Me.... I took everyone's guilt upon My shoulders, but not everyone feels guilty and therefore does not p lace their burden upon Me. And thus they will also be unable to purge their guil t, since it is too immense to do so themselves, because now they are also adding the guilt of rejecting My love.... But how can they hope for the forgiveness of their sins? How can people believe that they can become free of all guilt witho ut their own contribution, without their own will?.... My love's sacrifice for you, the purification of all sin through My blood is an incomprehensibly significant blessing for you humans. But you must also want to receive My love, you should not reject it, otherwise it cannot take effect on yo u, otherwise I cannot redeem the guilt of sin, otherwise your sins will stay wit h you until you change your mind and acknowledge Me as your divine Saviour, Who died on the cross to redeem you.... Amen Jesus descended into the abyss after His crucifixion.... When I lived on earth My constant thought was to save people from descending int o utmost darkness so that they would be unable to enter the vestibule of hell, ( which even denied their entrance to the vestibule of hell), on account of which I continuously proclaimed the teaching of love to make it easier for them to bel ieve in My act of Salvation, and thereby the work of redemption was already achi

eved in these human beings. Yet people were still too occupied with the earthly world, only a few believed in life after death and they were receptive for My te aching of love, and they recognised Me Myself with ease since I was also able to instruct them and they accepted everything as truth. Thus a large proportion of those who experienced Me Myself were able to enter My kingdom in a `redeemed' s tate, yet far more rejected My teaching, they remained heartless and had to endu re their fate in the beyond.... After My crucifixion I also descended into this kingdom and was able to release all those who stayed in the vestibule of hell.... all the people who had lead a God-pleasing life but for whom the kingdom of light was still locked because the y were still burdened by the original sin, since My act of Salvation had yet to be accomplished.... I approached them as the `human being Jesus' for they, too, should not be compelled to believe, I joined them in My figure of suffering whic h made many ask the question: If You are the Messiah Who was promised to us, why did Your power not prevent this.... why did You have to suffer this appalling d eath on the cross? For they had been waiting for Me, for the One Who was promise d to them as Saviour. They, too, had to follow Me entirely of their own free wil l, and it was not difficult to convince them that I was this promised Messiah... . Then, however, followed My descent into hell.... into the region where I also wa nted to bring salvation from the original sin.... There I was less successful in convincing the souls, precisely because I appeared in the same figure and was v isible to them as the `beaten Jesus' to Whom they denied all power and thus they did not want to acknowledge Him either. Nevertheless, anyone who wanted to was allowed to follow Me and I released him from his bondage. And time and again I d escend into the abyss to ignite a small light for everyone, so that they momenta rily will remember the One Who once came to them and gradually lessen their resi stance, so that they, who previously had been stubborn and only had words of hat red and scorn for Him, will also let themselves be redeemed by His love. Yet My love will not hold anything against them, My love is constantly concerned that e veryone should be rescued, that no-one will return again into the bondage of the one who had owned them for so long, and that My act of Salvation for these, too , has not been made in vain. But I cannot prevent it if their resistance to Me i s so strong that all endeavours on My part are in vain, for I will never force a nyone to acknowledge Me, I will only offer everyone the best possible opportunit ies to find their way out into the light. And thus you humans render Me a great service by praying for these souls, for th ere will always be a few who will let go, who will be touched by the power of pr ayer and then can be guided into the light. And in sincere gratitude these souls will do the same and entice other souls out of the abyss.... since they know ea ch other and they understand and try to disperse the objections which still domi nate them. Once it is possible that they at least take notice of My greatest act of mercy t hen they will also reflect on it and try to make contact with Me.... And then th e forgiveness of their immense sin is ensured, then the gate into the kingdom of light will be opened for them and a long state of torment will have finished. Y et those who are unwilling will be subject to a new banishment at the end, for o ne day they will have to regain their self-awareness as a human being and decide once more.... And thus the process across earth can indeed happen more than onc e, and sooner or later even these beings' will shall surely turn to Me as well, one day the hour of salvation will also come for them.... Amen B.D. 2768 , 3277, 8999 â Published by friends of new revelations of God â
