He wants that there is light, because deep night is spread over the earth; he wants that you men recognize, what you lack; he wants that you are instructed in truth and now also recognize and acknowledge Jesus Christ, the son of God and redeemer of the world, because only through him you can be happy, because his Gospel must be accepted by you so, as he himself has announced it to you.

Interpretation of the words of Christ. Supply of the pure Gospel.

11. December 1952. B.D. NR. 5552.

The words of Christ, which he has spoken on earth, allow many different interpretations and must, despite different interpretation, get acknowledged as eternal truth. But for that reason the interpretations must also correspond to the spiritual meaning, which Jesus has put into his words, otherwise they are to be described as erroneous and contribute with it that the pure Gospel is disfigured according to the meaning. And for that reason a certain responsibility lies in it wanting to interpret Scripture according to the own intellectual thinking, when the spirit of God cannot work and enlightens the intellect of man. But the work of the divine spirit is the result of a life according to the will of God. And so the man, who thinks being called to interpret Scripture, must ask himself before his conscience, how far he fulfils the will of God. The interpretation of the Gospel, of the words of Christ, the spirit of God itself has to carry out, then they are also according to truth, for the word of God, the teaching of Jesus Christ, is a teaching of the spirit, it is a teaching, which only concerns the spiritual kingdom and is to promote the spiritual development of man. Consequently the world mind alone cannot grasp Godís word in its deep spiritual meaning, but the spirit in man must be busy, which now directs all thoughts spiritually and leads man to the true understanding of the words of Jesus. Is the word purely interpreted to the letter only, then contradictions are often established, but which immediately fade with spiritual interpretation. But with wrong interpretation they endanger the teaching of Christ, i.e., they perhaps often give cause to rejection, because again only the intellect judges and through contradictions a will to resist is produced. And so it is to be explained that the teaching of Christ is many times rejected, because the teachers themselves could not be instructed by the spirit in them, because they themselves assumed and passed on a wrong interpretation, which had to lead to the rejection sooner or later, because only truth gives light, but error always increases darkness, under which men suffer. And again as a result the whole Christianity is in danger; the recognition and acknowledgement of Christ as redeemer of the world is weakened in the same measure, as truth is weakened, because only through truth light comes to man and because only through truth the confessor courage is strengthened for the saviour and redeemer, whose work of love and mercy is so enormously important that men, with right representation and explanation, would also completely confess him. Men walk in darkness through their sinful state and are not guided out of darkness. They do not find themselves the way, because everything is dark; but the right light can only be brought by God himself through his spirit. Where his spirit works, there is light, and there is also deep faith in Jesus Christ and his work of redemption. But where a teaching activity is carried out without spirit work, there only error is presented to men and darkness cannot go from them.

And so it will now be comprehensible to you men, why God supplies again the Gospel to earth in purest form. They are his words, which never change; which always and for ever remain, but have not been explained through the wisdom of man accordingly. Now God himself gives the explanation to his word; in comprehensible and most loving way he seeks to introduce men to truth. He speaks the same words again to men, and he enlightens the spirit of those, who listen to him. He wants that there is light, because deep night is spread over the earth; he wants that you men recognize, what you lack; he wants that you are instructed in truth and now also recognize and acknowledge Jesus Christ, the son of God and redeemer of the world, because only through him you can be happy, because his Gospel must be accepted by you so, as he himself has announced it to you.
Amen B.D. NR. 5552.
