But love work illuminates his heart; he grasps the meaning, and the word goes to his heart; it stimulates him to obey it. Read more:

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

The spirit gives life to the word.

16. December 1948. B.D. NR. 4514.

My spirit gives life to my word. The word alone can be empty sound to him, whose ear it only touches, when my spirit cannot penetrate into his heart to make my word alive in him. And for that reason my word can be expressed and also listened to and still remain without impression, because it is dead, as long as my spirit cannot have an effect. But if my word goes out from me, it is formed by my spirit and also enlivened. Because from me it only goes out if a heart has made itself receptive, therefore where the spirit spark could establish the connection with the father spirit through love work. There my word will also be understood; it will live and prompt to activity. It is enlivened by my spirit. For that reason also the written word, the book of the fathers, can only be understood, when my spirit blows through if it is read or listened to in the state of connection of the spirit spark in man with the father spirit from eternity. Otherwise it also just remains a dead word, which is received by the ear and perhaps also digested by the intellect, but finds no echo from the heart and therefore can also exert no effect upon man. It is a dead word as long as the spirit in man is not awakened; it will give man nothing further; it will be read and for lack of understanding put aside or rejected. But the spirit will only be awakened through love. A man without love picks up the book of the fathers rarely or not at all, because it says nothing to him, because he finds no understanding for the written word, although it has taken its start from me. But love work illuminates his heart; he grasps the meaning, and the word goes to his heart; it stimulates him to obey it. My spirit has an effect in him, and he wins spiritual good; he becomes knowing and stands in truth he is awakened to actual life, because his ascent development now begins, the inner life stirs; he strives for perfection, because his spirit drives him to do it my word wins life in him. As long as the dead word only had touched him, it remained without impression; the word, which becomes alive, also changes the nature of man, because now I myself speak to him, and he also accepts my word as my love expression, as a gift of favour, which is valuable to him and of which he wants to make himself worthy. He strives towards me and fulfils my will, which I announce to him through my word and which my spirit makes comprehensible to him. He is awakened to life and will no longer lose this life for ever. Amen. B.D. NR. 4514.
