What is truth? Where is it to be found?

17. June 1953 B.D. NR. 5700.

In truth you men must be instructed, to be able to fulfil your earth life purpose. But what is truth? And how can you reach truth? God himself is eternal truth, and for that reason, who desires truth, must turn to God himself and ask him for truth. There is no other way than this direct one, for even, when it is offered differently, he will only be able to recognize it as truth, so he asks God for enlightenment of his spirit, for right thinking. Man must therefore first acknowledge God; he must believe in him. And this faith will only then be alive in him; it will have become inner conviction, when he lives in love, for only through love faith becomes alive. Love is the key to wisdom; love guarantees right thinking, in accordance with truth; for love, truth and God are one. You men must first make this basic truth your own that love is first condition to right thinking; that you can only then speak of an enlightened spirit, when you make an effort to lead a life in love, under which unselfish neighbourly love is to be understood and as a result of which you also express love for God. You men must know that, where love is, also God himself is, and where God is, is also truth. You must know that it is God’s will, to guide you into pure truth; that he wants to withhold nothing from you; that you are to change the state of ignorance into the state of cognition and that he is prepared at all times, to initiate you into truth; but that you must first fulfil the conditions, if you want to move in truth.

You are not allowed to think you are enabled, to be able to fathom truth with your intellect alone, for your intellectual thinking will go the wrong direction, as long as God is eliminated, but as also the will for truth, for serious longing for it, must exist, which is assessed by God as desire for him himself, because he himself is truth from eternity. And the serious desire has as precondition that man is prepared to give up the previous knowledge, to exchange pure truth for it; that he opens himself for that knowledge, which he is now allowed to receive, after he has proven the belief in God through sincere request for enlightenment of the spirit, for the supply of pure truth. God gives to everyone truth, who desires it seriously, and at the same time he also gives to him the power of cognition.

But what is to be understood under truth, of which it is spoken here? It is truth out of God, which cannot be proven earthly – they are those problems, which occupy every thinking man, which he would like to solve and which are not solvable pure intellectually. It is that knowledge about the original beginning and final destination of all that, what is – knowledge about meaning and purpose of creation, about meaning and purpose of earth life – it is knowledge about all connections of the creator with his creatures and creations. It is the answer to all questions, which you men cannot answer intellectually, rather can bring no proof for the correctness of your answer. You can just always assume and think right or wrong. But God gives you truth – so you submit to his conditions.

And this pure truth is to be presented to all. But it is left to you men, whether you want to accept it, whether you adapt yourselves so that you recognize it as truth, for your will is free. And even the most valuable spiritual material will not force to acceptance; it is offered to you men so that you can reject or also accept it, according to your attitude towards him, to faith and to love.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5700.
