Whoever thirsts for the truth, the Savior gives him words of eternal life. A pure heart and a receptive mind are the prerequisites for hearing these words. Likewise, all senses must be directed to God, then the thinking of the earthly child will be spiritualized in such a way that the Spirit of God can now make Itself known and from this connection of the Spirit of God with the soul life of man, an undreamt-of advantage arises. It is always only a question of time whether man wants to take the deepest wisdom from these proclamations or is content with less. .... Working on oneself, also increases receptivity. The firm will and deep faith are also necessary to be able to penetrate into the depths of Divine wisdom.

Those people, however, were mostly standing outside the church, i.e. outside of what mankind had built up in false knowledge. They had found the way to God in their innermost hearts and in the deepest attachment to the Divine Savior, had placed their lives completely in the will of God, and to these the Lord revealed Himself and gave them the crown of life already on earth. These were in most cases confessors of the pure word of God, but abhorring all externals, all pomp and self-love, and so in the midst of falsehood and lies, they found the right way to God and were therefore also strengthened by extraordinary proofs of grace at all times ....
