And no matter whether you also learn the book of the fathers by heart, whether you make an effort to interpret the divine word again on the basis of prophetic sayings, whether you intellectually master sentence for sentence, all this cannot get assessed higher than any other knowledge, which does not involve spiritual problems.

Worthlessness of earthly knowledge in the hereafter.

4. November 1953. B.D. NR. 5801.

Do not assess your earthly knowledge too high, for you can do nothing with it in eternity. It certainly can be of use for you for the duration of your earth life, but so you do not use it to get hold of spiritual knowledge for yourselves, by you through earthly knowledge gaining the cognition that you are creatures of God, and then make an effort to gain full truth from God, you will possess no advantages, so you enter the spiritual kingdom. But also that spiritual knowledge is to be assessed as earthly, which was won pure intellectually only - which certainly touches spiritual problems, but had been won as every other earthly knowledge through study for the purpose of an occupational activity. And no matter whether you also learn the book of the fathers by heart, whether you make an effort to interpret the divine word again on the basis of prophetic sayings, whether you intellectually master sentence for sentence, all this cannot get assessed higher than any other knowledge, which does not involve spiritual problems. For in the end only that remains for soul as share, what wisdom unselfish love work has brought in - only that remains for the soul, what the spirit in it could impart to it. And that requires no worldly study, no sharp intellectual thinking and no unusual memory ability. For the spirit gives it to it, when it needs it. And of what use is a wealth for you, which you cannot utilize over there - it is dead knowledge; it gives you no light, and on earth you cannot even prove the truth of this knowledge, as long as your spirit does not impart to you right recognition and power of judgement. But you yourselves must tackle this spirit in you; you must enable it to express itself to you. Only then it will become light in you and you will also spread brightly radiating light at the entry into the spiritual kingdom. But blessed, who lets himself be instructed by the spirit and at the same time sought to broaden his earthly knowledge. Much thought material will be sent to him; also earthly knowledge will be made accessible to him, as soon as his striving is first meant to win spiritual goods. And he will truly apply all knowledge beneficially, when his earthly life has been brought to an end. He will be able to hand out in the spiritual kingdom everything, what he possesses, for he will also be again able to have a leading and instructing effect on men, who like him search and strive in the desire for God and for truth.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5801.
