Therefore the word itself proves itself, so full expression is given to it.

These also believe in the work of God in man, in the work of spiritual powers, in the connection of the spiritual world with men on earth, and to these a process is comprehensible, which does not let itself be explained with earthly abilities alone, which visibly proves a radiation from above, a power going out from God.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Process of transmission of spiritual gifts. Power.

29. and 31. July 1953. B.D. NR. 5734.

The transmitting of spiritual gifts from the kingdom of light is an expression of power, a process, which would not be possible, when the giving beings would lack power, when they would not work on behalf of God. Where therefore a man receives thought material, which is not won through thinking, a power is at work, a being, which therefore just passes on, what it receives itself what flows out of the source of power from eternity. A power is to be recognized, when an event becomes visible beyond the natural abilities, when therefore man does not use his abilities, but he himself as it were is inactive and still something comes into being, what he has not done; what therefore proves another power, which recognizable to man has become effective. Own intellectual activity can indeed also produce results, which are not to be rejected, but then man himself is the producing power; he uses the life power being at his disposal, and he will be able to record results according to his abilities. But where the own intellect steps back, where it keeps passive, where it does not fight against expressions of a power, there results appear, which have not been determined by the will of men, but by the will of that power, which now works, which certainly now lets itself also be determined by the will of man, by it answering questions, but the answer is completely independent from the will of man. Therefore it is a thinking power, which expresses itself, which is stronger than man, because it gives something, what man does not possess the cognition about things, which the intellect of man cannot fathom. What man intellectually acquires for himself, is therefore always the result of eager though or taking up of knowledge, which again has been acquired intellectually. And then one cannot speak of the work of a power, which lets something come into being, what was not before but whereon man himself is uninvolved, only that he receives that what came into being, that, what the power has produced, and acquires it for himself through intellectual activity following it. Receipts from the spiritual kingdom therefore prove the work of a power, which for that reason must be acknowledged as divine, because it works, to produce something, while a negative power only has a destructive effect and is easily recognizable, because it confuses the thinking of man, but does not sharpen, because therefore also mental results, which have been generated through the influence of negative powers, only always bring about more confusion, but bring no enlightenment. (31.7.1953) Mental activity can indeed also be influenced from the good spiritual side and therefore also produce good results, but with mental activity always the life power of man is effective, while, with transmissions from the spiritual kingdom in the form of the divine word, the life power becomes active insofar only, as the receipts are written down, but a power having an unusual effect is to be recognized, which indeed also expresses itself out from the inside, which however obviously stands in contact with a power outside, with a power, which is to be sought only in the kingdom of the spiritual and which legitimates itself as divine power through the gifts of the spirit, which it produces. Wanting to see this expression of power not comprehensible to men as effect of the counter spirit of God, is completely refuted through the content, which just seeks to cause men to change their nature to love, to reach perfection, and which imparts knowledge to men, which the opponent of God would never give to them, but that could also not be proved as error or lie, when it would seriously be examined as a result of this. The truth of it is indeed also not to be proven, however to be felt, when the way of life is led according to the content. Therefore the word itself proves itself, so full expression is given to it. And then also the divine origin is recognized and acknowledged, but always only by those, who strive for God and grant the opponent of God no right over them. These also believe in the work of God in man, in the work of spiritual powers, in the connection of the spiritual world with men on earth, and to these a process is comprehensible, which does not let itself be explained with earthly abilities alone, which visibly proves a radiation from above, a power going out from God.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5734.
