The hearing of the divine word. Thoughts.

28. July 1949. B.D. NR. 4700.

Only through the inner word can you be enlightened in questions, which earthly scientists cannot answer. There is certainly an authority, which is responsible for spiritual questions; however the way to it men rarely go. For that reason the answer according to truth will also only rarely be received, which can exactly only give the one, to who nothing is foreign, who knows about everything, who also wants to supply to you men the knowledge, so that he is recognized by men. Through the word therefore God expresses Himself and who wants to hear it, must gain Godís love; he must make Him well-disposed to him, by him doing himself everything, what God requires of him Ė then God approaches you so, that you can hear his voice, because he expresses Himself through his word; he announces Himself to you; He speaks with you men in easily understandable language; He speaks through your heart to your intellect and goes into every question, which you express or move in your thoughts. He answers you. His word is therefore a sign of closeness of Him towards you, because only then can you hear His voice, so you unite with Him mentally or through love work. And so has God always spoken to men, as long as the earth exists; only He has been easier understood up to now, while only very rarely his language is understood. But to these few men He gives in a measure, which is unlimited. To them He wants to explain and give reasons for everything, so that they can impart the knowledge won so to their fellowmen for the salvation of their soul. And so that they no further fall in doubts, He lets them see into his eternal plan of salvation; and He so lights a light in them, that they no longer sink back into darkness for ever. He approaches men in the word, who want to let themselves be instructed. And so the word always and constantly remains the bridge between God and men, but onto which man can only walk, so he withdraws from the world, so he avoids the broad ways, which appear more attractive to his eyes and lure him to follow. (29.7.1949) Only in solitude he hears the voice of God, i.e., he must avoid the world and let his thoughts roam over the spiritual kingdom. Then he does that, what he must do before: In thoughts he connects to God; he holds dialogue with him; he presents questions to him, which move him, by him allowing the thoughts to take their own course. And these thoughts are already radiations out of the spiritual kingdom. Because man can utter nothing as far as he is concerned. The intellect is certainly able to receive and to process the thoughts flowing towards him, but the thought itself does not originate in man, but it touches his heart, but flows out of the kingdom, which lies outside of earthly spheres. The thought is spiritual product, therefore a power, which takes a certain form, as soon as it is received by the intellect, in which therefore the intellect is influenced by the heart, to become active, by it now forming the thoughts sent to it and gives them a certain order. The activity of the intellect is the holding on to the thoughts, which wavelike touch the heart and can also find no echo, when the will of man just uses the thought activity for worldly things through the hustle and bustle of the world and pays no attention to spiritual currents. But if man goes into quietness and turns the back to the world, then spiritual currents touch his heart, which it feels beneficently and which man then receives eagerly. Then the word is formed through this willingness to receive, i.e., man realizes it to be meaningful and comprehensible what God himself wants to say to him. He therefore hears His voice in the heart; the thought waves are received by the heart and sent to the intellect, and man as such is able to appropriate the received spirit material also intellectually and to also explain it comprehensibly to fellowman. This is a process, which is actually simple and uncomplicated, only not grasped by worldly men, because he has no understanding for feelings of the soul and for that reason also tries to explain thought activity purely organically. But where the thought basically starts, that is foreign to him, and an explanation about it is unacceptable to him, because he does not acknowledge spiritual things at all, because he only acknowledges that, what he can see or take hold of. But God gives again and again a proof of powers, which human intellect is not able to explain, and He gives information about everything through His word. Who lets Godís word speak to him, he will have a comprehensible knowledge at his disposal, because there is nothing, what remains foreign to that man, who lets Him instruct him through the word, and so man can broaden his knowledge; he can penetrate into everything and fetch information, about which he desires information. Because as far as God is concerned no limits are set to man, as soon as he gets into contact with the giver of knowledge and of truth and lets Him instruct him Ė as soon as he believes that God Himself speaks to him through the heart. Amen. B.D. NR. 4700.
