But my spirit will always be able to be effective there, where love is.

For many are called, but few are chosen.

The spirit alone gives brightness; the spirit imparts truth, and the spirit alone addresses the heart, while the intellect only addresses again the intellect and finds no echo in the heart. Read more:

"For many are called, but few are chosen."

16. and 17. Febuary 1953. B.D. NR. 5604.

Many are called, but only few are chosen. You all have been given the task to form yourselves to a vessel of my spirit, and you all can also do this, when your will would strive for it. But that you all do not reach the aim, is up to you yourselves, exactly to your will, which is free and is not directed or determined by me to do the right thing. Only few take their earth task serious; they form their heart according to my will and for that reason can also let my spirit haven an effect in them. And these are therefore those, who are chosen under the many called. But to now be chosen by me means having to fulfil a task, which exactly only a man can carry out, who allows my spirit work. He is to support me and my name before the world; he is to announce my word, the divine love teaching, which reveals my will to men. No man can administer such an office on earth, who does not belong to my chosen ones, for the announcing of the Gospel presupposes knowledge, which is according to truth. Such knowledge cannot be won through study, for head knowledge is not enough for the spreading of my Gospel, but the spirit from me must first make the head knowledge alive, otherwise it just remains pure world knowledge, although it has spiritual as content. Therefore also each one announcer of my word must have been chosen by me for his office, and this he has to prove. He must be able to show a gift of the spirit, the work of my spirit must be obvious in him. That means so much, as that he has abilities at his disposal, which he has not acquired, but which have been given to him by me as proof of my spirit work in him. Such ability is also the interpretation of the word, which testifies to me the interpretation of Scripture, which is valid as my word. No matter how long the study, it does not enable man, to grasp and to explain the spiritual meaning of my word. For intellectual knowledge cannot replace, what my spirit announces to man. But my spirit has on the other hand no effect, where the preconditions for it are not given. But where my spirit works, there intellectual knowledge is not necessary; there I myself instruct man and put the spiritual truth into the heart most comprehensibly for him, so that he is full of knowledge and of cognition. (17.2.1953) And for that reason it is also vain effort, wanting to draw wisdom from Scripture, as long as my spirit cannot work. And so it is also understandable, why the interpretation of my word is so often erroneous, why only the letter meaning is interpreted, but not the spiritual meaning, which I have put into all my words, which I spoke on earth. For the intellect of man interprets the meaning of the letter, the spirit out of me the spiritual meaning, so it can have an effect in man. And which work of the intellect is necessary for this while the spirit from me interprets my word clearly and plainly, without that the intellect needs to get active. And nevertheless man renders this explanation quite naturally, so, as if it is the result of his intellect, but the deep wisdom of that, what he expresses, the interpretations comprehensible to all, testify to the spirit work, but again only to those, who are of good will and want to be instructed right while an intellectual interpretation are no satisfying explanations for fellowmen and cannot convince. The spirit alone gives brightness; the spirit imparts truth, and the spirit alone addresses the heart, while the intellect only addresses again the intellect and finds no echo in the heart.

But my spirit will always be able to be effective there, where love is love, which is always prepared to give, which wants to help and redeem; love which knows no other desire than to alleviate trouble, may it be spiritual or earthly. Where giving love, completely selfless, is visible, there also truth is always to be found, because I am, where love is, because every work of love attracts me myself and that man is intimately connected to me, who lives in love. And where I am, my spirit works; where I am, is truth; where I am, I express myself through the spirit, and that also means light, cognition it means, to possess knowledge, which is according to truth.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5604.
