When men seek truth on the way of the intellect, then they themselves draw the limits for them, because their intellect is limited, while the spirit can fly over all limits and every field is opened to it.

 

Bertha Dudde:

 

Attitude of intellectual men to gifts of the spirit.

25. August 1953. B.D. NR. 5754.

There will always be men, who are difficult to be won for me and my teaching, because they take up their intellect far too strongly, but let their heart speak little, which recognizes me rather than the intellect. For through it my opponent seeks to make himself heard, while the heart will hear me. I am certainly also to be recognized with the intellect, but always only then, when the heart has already recognized me. An intellectual man knows nothing of the gifts of the spirit, of abilities, which man can develop in himself, but which cannot be substantiated organically. An intellectual man moves in another course than a man, whose spirit is awakened, and since both go different ways, also their aims are different full of light the one and dark and sinister the other aim. When men seek truth on the way of the intellect, then they themselves draw the limits for them, because their intellect is limited, while the spirit can fly over all limits and every field is opened to it. And so a man will never be able to call himself knowing, who researches only pure intellectually, but has not yet awakened the spirit. And that he will not acknowledge knowledge won as spirit work, that proves the insufficiency of his intellectual knowledge. But I tolerate him and his spiritual weakness, because he is only then to be instructed, when he recognizes that the last knowledge remains closed to him after all when he recognizes, how little he can do with his intellectual knowledge, which in the long run still lets him unsatisfied and which he cannot increase through no matter how eager thought. For knowledge must be send to him not by men, but by God. He must ask me for it, only then he increases in knowledge, in light, only then he receives wisdom, not just world knowledge, which is inadequate. He must become empty to be able to be filled he must free himself of world knowledge to be able to receive spiritual knowledge; he must seek the light to be able to find it only then my teaching will prove to him its start; only then he will strive for my kingdom, and only then my spirit will be able to work and impart knowledge to him, which the heart and the intellect accepts, because is has its start with me.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5754.
