He can look at the days of creation as he wants; he can want to recognize a pure spiritual connexion and will be instructed accordingly – but he can also consider himself as centre of all material creations and interpret the handed down expressions of Moses correspondingly or shelve them as for him incomprehensible for the time being, i.e., until his insight maturity is increased through a way of life according to divine will.

Creation of the world. Moses. Metaphorical language.

4. and 5. August 1947. B.D. NR. 4097.

Do not allow yourselves to be carried away to a judgement as long as you are not of a fully awakened spirit. There is so infinitely much which would burden your intellect if it is to process it, but which is still divine wisdom, therefore knowledge that completely corresponds to truth. Man in his insufficiency can comprehend no little part of it; he also cannot receive light about it through no matter how sharp an intellectual activity, but he must desire and receive enlightenment about it on a spiritual way. He must let God speak to him directly or in the form of thoughts, which arise in him after intimate prayer for enlightenment. What is fully comprehensible to one man, can be darker knowledge than deepest night to the other, and therefore the latter will reject, what the former recognizes and accepts as pure truth. But a debate about it can also give enlightenment to him, if he desires such. Just so can God also in form of instructions through fellowmen hand out truth, if he can express himself through an organ or dictates to him in the pen, what is necessary to know: - There are different explanations about the scripture text of the creation of the world, and each can be truth, if it has taken its start from him who himself is eternal truth. And consequently it depends on the degree of maturity of him who is instructed, which explanation he needs. He can look at the days of creation as he wants; he can want to recognize a pure spiritual connexion and will be instructed accordingly – but he can also consider himself as centre of all material creations and interpret the handed down expressions of Moses correspondingly or shelve them as for him incomprehensible for the time being, i.e., until his insight maturity is increased through a way of life according to divine will. On earth he will never reach complete understanding, because divine wisdom is inexhaustible, unfathomable, before man is not perfect, although God enlightens man and can impart to him comprehensive knowledge through his spirit. The creation of the world cannot be explained to man otherwise than through images. Men at the time of Moses were familiar with metaphorical language, so that they not only understood the earthly, i.e. the material development of the earth by that, but could also comprehend the spiritual connexion, if they wished to learn it. The words of Moses are not given superficially, and they can therefore also not be understood according to their wording, but God himself spoke to Moses, and that is for the whole mankind of one whole redemption period, which covers an endless long space of time. (5.8.1947) And his speech was so made that it could be applied to present, past and future. It enlightened both the time from the beginning until the end of a redemption period as well as the prehistory and the time epoch still to come, which was clearly and surely foreseen by a man like Moses who sees spiritually, even so man as such does not know about future things. But to the spiritually seeing man everything is uncovered, and his acting is accordingly. Therefore Moses gave mankind a light; he stood in fullest agreement with the will of God, and therefore he could also express what urged in him to express: God now wanted to announce to men the sequence of earthly creation, whereby however it must be born in mind that endless long time was needed for it and this time must be in relation to both the spiritual as well as the earthly development. The spiritual development always concerns ultimately the entity in the embodiment as man. Consequently the ascent development as man also has to be compared with the slow development of the earthly creation, and as the former is accomplished in divine order, it must be equal to the course of development of the earthly material world, which also took its course in the order wanted by God. Only the spiritual striving man comprehends the connexion and can make this establishment, and he also understands the meaning of the words of Moses according to the spiritual importance. However a more intelligible explanation is not to be given as long as the parallel of spiritual and material ascent development is not sought. To explain the development of the material creation to men was truly not of importance, and the knowledge about it does not enlarge man. Nevertheless its beginning corresponded to the spiritual state of the entity. Everything following resulted from what has already been said. But it is not at all to be denied that God constantly gives instructions to men about their destination, about their life purpose – the ascent development of the soul. Through Moses the same happened in exactly that way that man’s attention was called to the rise of the earthly creation with regard to the spiritual aim. And the man Jesus explained the words of Moses the same way, driven by the spirit in him, and the spiritual development of man was for him of greater importance, so that he explained everything with regard to it, to cause men to attach the lesser importance to the actual creation of the world than to the spiritual correspondence, the parallel, which every earthly happening has to show and which has to be heeded far more, if man wants to record success for his soul. Still many other explanations can be offered, and this is also the case that the receivers of spiritual announcements receive different expositions about it through the work of the spirit. But then a discussion is needed from time to time, and where the same opinions, the same explanations are to be found, there one can also speak of sure work of the spirit, because every explanation must agree with the other and ultimately always concern the ascent development of the spirit man, even so in easy or difficult to grasp portrayal. Where the spirit of God itself can work, understanding is also guaranteed. Amen. B.D. NR. 4097.
