Value of divine revelations.

30. June 1949. B.D. NR. 4680.

The value of divine revelations is recognized only by few and also cannot be proven school wise to men, but it will make exceedingly happy all, who awaken the spirit in themselves and are now recognized to receive divine revelations. Only to fellowmen it can be mentioned, but only to the spiritual awakened the extraordinary supply of favour becomes comprehensible. And still the attention of fellowmen is to be drawn to it, because every divine revelation holds power in itself and can therefore still have an effect on the heart that it feels the favour and the truth of that, what is brought to it as divine revelation and now desires it again and always again, what can also lead to the awakening of the spirit. What comes from God will never be without favourable effect – this effect only requires a certain attitude towards God – man must acknowledge God and be of a will turned towards him. Then he also feels his word, his revelation as favour; he feels the power, which flows from the word of God, and he seeks to often turn towards this favour; he desires the word of God; receives it gratefully and is aware that he approaches God himself in this way, because God is present to him, as soon as he knows the desire and the will of man is directed towards him. A divine revelation is therefore always a proof of the presence of God, even so when it is not passed on directly, but through the mouth of man. The listener will always be able to feel the power of the word in the form of increased desire for the divine gift. Many men can put themselves in the blessing of divine revelations, but most lack the recognition, and therefore they do not know about the extraordinary gift of favour, about that love, which announces itself through a revelation to those, who want to recognize God. And without recognition they do not strive for it; but without striving and desire also no gift of favour can be supplied to them, because it would then remain completely unnoticed. That God reveals himself proves the intimate relationship of the creator from eternity with his creatures whom he wants to have taken part in his love radiation; whom he wants to put in the possession of light and power. (2.7.1949). Because he knows about the weak state of man in need of help, who are certainly his creatures from eternity, however still have started their earth life through their wrong will as spiritual beings turned away from him and are to turn again to him in free will. But without help they are not able to do it, for that reason God’s love co-operates with them and wants to strengthen them and move them to change their will. But so that they recognize him, he reveals himself to them in the most different way, so that it is now possible for them to put themselves in a state full of light right from the beginning, when they just want to. For that reason divine revelations are of such immense value, because they can fashion the lot of the spiritual for the whole eternity to that of happiness, however always depending on the free will of man during his earth existence. God has constantly revealed himself since the beginning of creation; the connection from God to men has never stopped; his revelations always were the light, which broke through the darkness of night – the ignorance of the fallen creatures -, and the possibility was always given thereby to reach the original source of light, God. But again and again the light was marred, i.e. what started from God bright and radiating, was darkened through the will of man or completely extinguished. Pure truth was infiltrated by error or displaced by the lie. Divine revelations were disfigured and still represented in this state to men as divine. In this way mankind became more and more a slave of darkness except for a few, who opened themselves in free will to the divine revelations and could now again receive radiating light. Occasionally such rays of light shine in the middle of the darkness of night, and its effect is indescribably fostering for the completion of the souls, which stand in the ascent development process and need help from God, but as the other way round the disfigured revelations influence this process unfavourably, indeed for the most part prevent it. For this reason God will again and again reveal himself to those, who are of good will and put themselves in the state, which allows direct or indirect revelations. Because God is eternal truth, and he also wants to guide men into truth, because truth alone is light and guides men to the right cognition of the nature of God, which there is love, omnipotence and wisdom, and therefore also awakens in them right love towards God. Amen. B.D. NR. 4680.
