What you draw on knowledge out of the book of the fathers, is little suitable for this recovery, as only love is still always the sole means of recovery, and it can also be practised without such knowledge, and it must also be practised before, before man can speak of right knowledge, of truthful spiritual thought material.

Bible research. Intellectual knowledge. (after talk of Jehovah’s Witnesses)

3. and 4. July 1951. B.D. NR. 5164.

Only that can be of use for you men, what you understand, and I will truly not demand from you, to receive an incomprehensible knowledge in you, because such just confuses your thinking, but does not help your soul to mature. I certainly want to guide you into truth and therefore open a spiritual knowledge for you, but it is better, to leave you ignorant, than to offer you deformed spiritual material or to present food to you, which is indigestible for you for that reason that the teachers themselves do not possess the right knowledge and they therefore have no ability to instruct their fellowmen. The food, which they offer, has no nutritional value; it is rather only suitable, to suppress the healthy hunger for right food and the burden the souls, therefore to make the ascent up more difficult. It is so little, what you men need to know to be happy, and what is to be sent to you of divine teachings. My love command is the short summarized teaching, which announces my will to you, and the fulfilling of my love command will then also earn you the knowledge, which is useful for you to the winning of eternal life. Because right knowledge comes as the result of a love life; the right knowledge, which is according to truth, is the effect of a way of life led in love. And for that reason only love needs to be preached to you men, and you receive then the right food, which is suitable food for your soul. And this sermon you all can understand; it requires only your will, to fulfil that, what I demand of you. Only unselfish love I demand of you, but not that you seek to enrich yourself of knowledge intellectual wise, which is only really comprehensible, so the heart is able to love and able to will.

Grasp it, you men, that all spiritual knowledge only becomes real knowledge through a love life and that it has no value without such before my eyes and also not for you yourselves. For that reason, when you want to instruct your fellowmen, then just present to them the blessing of a real love life; make me recognizable to them as a God of love, of wisdom and of omnipotence, so that they learn to love me and out of love for me also practise neighbourly love. And so you have accomplished this work, to stimulate men to constant love work, then you truly haven been the best teaching masters; then you have helped them indirectly to knowledge, which now flows to them as effect of love, because then the spirit in them becomes alive, which guides them in truth, because love earns them enlightenment of the spirit and it is now easily comprehensible to men, what cannot be explained to him intellectual wise only. Because the spirit alone gives life to knowledge; the spirit alone instructs man right. (4.7.1951) And so you can confidently count yourselves to my students, you who receive my word from me directly and you who accept this my word, so it is offered to you from my receivers. I instruct all of you, because I know it, who adjusts himself right to my gift; I know it, what every individual needs, and I know also, how the individual assesses and utilizes it. And that alone is decisive, what he receives. But so I now give to my students according to ability and will, to accept it, so you can see from this that a head full of intellectual knowledge has no other value than that, to be regarded before fellowmen as knowing. For so he passes on this intellectual knowledge, the heart of the receiver is neither ennobled by this means nor is spiritual food supplied to the soul. For spiritual food is only that, which strengthens the soul for ascent; spiritual food is that knowledge, which lets love for me and for the neighbour revive, and for it takes truly little, but the right knowledge. But so you now believe having to explore the book of the fathers most thoroughly, you let more your intellect become active than the heart, and then, what you achieve of success, will serve less the soul than more worldly knowledge, although it is of spiritual origin. For you rather seek to explain, and to also set time wise, worldly happenings, than to penetrate into my plan of salvation from eternity, which however only aims to achieve your spiritual recovery. What you draw on knowledge out of the book of the fathers, is little suitable for this recovery, as only love is still always the sole means of recovery, and it can also be practised without such knowledge, and it must also be practised before, before man can speak of right knowledge, of truthful spiritual thought material. The eagerness is certainly to be praised, with which they believe to serve me, but this eagerness is only then right, when it is expressed in love for the neighbour, because only then the rebirth of the spirit can be achieved, which alone moves you into all truth. Everything, what is done for me, I however acknowledge as love for me, but this love is only then proved, so it is also meant for the neighbour, and this teaching is to be spread everywhere as most important Gospel, for all cognition depends on it, soul maturity and also eternal life – but not on his knowledge about historical events or on the interpretation of my word in not comprehensible meaning. Only the fulfilment of my will leads you men to the destination, and my will is and remains a life in love, a fulfilment of my command of God-love and neighbourly love. Amen. B.D. NR. 5164.
