The words of the Scriptures are for most men only still letters without spirit and life.

No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

They do not seek life, but death - they reject him, who promises life to them, and for that reason they will remain in sin and death, because without Jesus Christ there is no redemption and no returning home into the father house. Read more:

"No man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

9. May 1954. B.D. NR. 5952.

No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. These word alone already should let men recognize the significance of the acknowledgement of Jesus as God's son and redeemer of the world, and nevertheless they have completely lost the impression, for mankind pays no attention to them, otherwise it would not reject him so without thinking, him, who describes himself as bridge to the father. The words of the Scriptures are for most men only still letters without spirit and life. They speak them along, without being aware of their significance; they leave the words of the Lord completely unnoticed and therefore also do not find to the father, because they also do not believe in him with that conviction, which would result in a paying attention to the divine word. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me. But men lack the will, to reach the father, why they also do not seek the way to him - why the divine redeemer Jesus Christ is also without all significance for them. This attitude leads to ruin, to spiritual death. Since they do not reach the father, they remain under the control of him, who is the opponent of God; they remain in the depth, because they do not long upwards. It is an extremely regrettable state, that men have no striving upwards at all, that they do not think about their earth task and that also the teaching of Christ, the Gospel, is indifferent to them, that they accept none of his words as important and think about them - that they cannot reach cognition, because they seek no enlightenment, because it is a matter of complete indifference to them, what God would like to impart to them through the Scriptures and what the man Jesus as the speaker of God has preached to men. And no-one thinks about it, that he only stays on earth for that reason, to manage the return to the father, and that opportunity for it is constantly offered to him, which he rejects in his obdurate mind, because he does not believe. The distance of man to the father is great, however one offers himself for leadership, for mediation. One has established the bridge, which makes the way to the father passable, and this one offers to all men his help. But he is not listened to; he is not paid attention to, so he wants to bring himself to men into remembrance. Blindly and deafly they go past him, although he calls to them: "No man cometh unto the Father, but by me." He himself says of himself: "I am the way, the truth, and the life." Who therefore seeks truth and life, he must take the way over Jesus Christ; he must make use of his mediation; he must request power from him, to be able to cover the earth way successfully, which is the purpose of life: to find the unification with the father, which only secures a life in happiness, a life, which lasts for ever. Men do not know, which lot they are heading for through their indifference and their unbelief; they do not know, what they forfeit in this way, that they do not respect the divine word, that they do not take their refuge to him, who alone can rescue them from ruin - they do not know it and do not believe the words of those, who know about it and would like to help them. And no matter whether the word sounds from above, they do not accept it, for they listen to another voice, to the voice of the world, with which the opponent of God addresses them and to which they willingly open their ears. They do not seek life, but death - they reject him, who promises life to them, and for that reason they will remain in sin and death, because without Jesus Christ there is no redemption and no returning home into the father house.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5952.
