Therefore faith also depends on love, and so love is still the first.

Who believes in me, he will live in eternity.

Who believes in me, he will live in eternity.

2. November 1952. B.D. NR. 5523.

Who believes in me, he will live in eternity. It is these my words, which also give cause to dissentions, because the spiritual meaning was not recognized properly. I request faith in me, to be able to give eternal life to men. But what is to be understood under faith? Not the confessing with the mouth; not the intellectual acknowledgment of my work of redemption, but the inner conviction of the truth of all that, what I taught you men on earth, is to be understood under "faith", and this inner conviction is only to be won through love. Therefore faith also depends on love, and so love is still the first. But it is also fulfilled by those, who believe so in me that I can give away eternal life to them. Therefore real faith is promising life, because it includes love. But intellectual faith does not lead to eternal life, and this intellectual faith it is, which if need be is still to be found among men, but which I cannot assess so that it earns man eternal life. I want a living faith, but which can only be won through love. For man only lives, so he feels a security in him though love, a faith, which truly makes happy, which now determines his whole wanting and thinking and produces a way of life, which earns him eternal life. To believe intellectually is no proof of the maturity of a soul, for man can have been pushed on a Christian ground through education; he therefore cannot reject with conviction me myself, my earth life as man and my work of redemption; he thinks everything to be true. And nevertheless his heart does not need to be touched by it; for him it is a historic event, which he cannot deny; but he does not feel it as that, what it is. It does not touch his heart, which is only then impressed, when love comes to development in him. Then faith in it will trigger happiness in him; then something becomes alive in him; only then man feels in the midst of my work on mankind; only then he can speak of that faith, which leads to eternal life. I certainly request first faith in Jesus Christ, the divine redeemer, because only via Jesus Christ the way is to eternal life, because faith in God alone is not enough, through the sin burden, which cannot get repaid without Jesus Christ. For that reason I spoke the words: "Who believes in me, he will live in eternity." Note well I, Jesus Christ, as redeemer of the world, request faith, but under "faith" only that faith is to always be understood, which is alive through love, why therefore men must first fulfil the commands of love, which I gave to men to show them the way, which leads to eternal happiness. But then they will also be able to believe and in this faith enter into eternal life. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5523.
