Cognition of eternal divinity.

2. June 1949. B.D. NR. 4657.

The clear cognition of the eternal divinity, the awareness of its existence and its exceedingly perfect nature, can only be won by those men, who live in love. To these alone it is given, to form a right impression, which they can indeed not express in words, because it is merely a matter of feeling. But precisely his feeling will be in accordance with the truth, because love can produce nothing else than truth, because a man, who lives in love, can think and feel nothing else than truly and consequently; and therefore also the God-idea is comprehensible to him. But the intellect will then not particularly be made use of, but the heart comes more into action insofar, than that it is the seat of feelings, which are then certainly sent to the intellect and are received by it and, since the intellect has not produced them, become aware to man as feelings. But such imparting out of the spiritual kingdom can only touch a heart formed to love, because it is receptive and willing for spiritual currents. A heart, which is void of any love, does not open and will therefore remain poor in feeling and consequently also without cognition. Because the knowledge about God is spiritual wealth, which starts from God, who is love himself, and is only given to him, who seeks to adapt himself to his original nature. Because it awakens the spirit in him to life, which is a spark of the eternal spirit of God. The eternal divinity therefore certainly lets itself fathom, even so not in its complete depth, as long as man still dwells on earth. It lets itself fathom so far, that man becomes aware of, (3.6.1949) that a highly perfect being has created him and that this perfect being stands in connection with himself, therefore with imperfect creatures, but which have only become imperfect through their own fault. Man therefore recognizes for the first time a power of creation, which proves all features of an entity. He furthermore recognizes a supernatural work of this power by the countless creations and consequently the will and the wisdom of the being, but as also the original reason of the creative activity, love. He therefore can now believe in this being out of inner conviction, because he has won the cognition out of the inside as result of a life in love. And furthermore he is now initiated by exactly this entity into a deeper knowledge, as a result of which the eternal divinity becomes more and more comprehensible to him, because meaning and purpose of all events is explained to him and he is therefore initiated into the eternal plan of salvation of God and consequently penetrates deeper and deeper into the secrets of divine work with Godís approval, because God himself wants to guide men into truth and gives most complete enlightenment, if they make themselves worthy of them through fulfilment of the divine commands, through a life in unselfish neighbourly love. Then the cognition of the eternal divine will becomes easy for men Ė problems, which are insoluble to those, who tackle them intellectually, will be able to be solved easily by all, who venture to the solution with a loving heart, because God reveals himself to them and also reveals his identity. Amen. B.D. NR. 4657.
