But where worldly organizations lay claim to be the church of Christ on earth, which was mentioned by Jesus Christ, they only represent the outer form in most cases, but not the heart. Read more:

The following announcement by Bertha Dudde contains this statement: God, who walked on earth as Jesus Christ.

This is a clear statement about who Jesus Christ is.

Jesus Christ is God.

 

The church of Christ. Faith – Rock.

29. March 1946. B.D. NR. 3729.

The true church of Christ does not contain the followers of this or that school of thought, this or that organization, but only alone the group of those who stand in living faith. God has made it dependent on faith alone whether man can count himself to the church of Christ. That is why his church will also be able to exist everywhere; it will be spread everywhere where men live, who stand in faith in Jesus Christ and also lead a life according to him, which can be called succession of Christ, which corresponds to the will of God, who walked on earth as Jesus Christ to announce to men his will through his word and his walk on earth as living example of his word. Because who is deeply believing, he also keeps the commandments of God; he walks in love and forms himself to a child of God; he is follower of the church of Christ and therefore candidate for his kingdom. Deep faith and therefore a life in love results in the work of the spirit of God in man, and therefore the church of Christ will always and constantly be filled by his spirit; it will only be able to preach true and right; it will be able to teach wisdom and stand in full power of faith, i.e., it will be able to also convince other men, when they are willing, about its worth, about its work on behalf of God to announce his kingdom to the entire world. But only those who are of good will will recognize this, but to the others its worth remains hidden because they know nothing of the characteristics of the church of Christ – and they also do not know to tell the difference between right and wrong. But where worldly organizations lay claim to be the church of Christ on earth, which was mentioned by Jesus Christ, they only represent the outer form in most cases, but not the heart. They might teach the word of Christ, but only living faith gives to God’s word the right meaning and the right value for the soul of man. And living faith can be in every church organization, as it can also be missing in every one, but follower of his church is only he who calls this living faith his own. But first living faith establishes the right relationship to God through works in love. In that way the spirit in man is getting awakened, which teaches him, and then man can recognize brightly and clearly of what the church consists – he can well distinguish between God’s will and the will of men under the cover of Christian faith. Then he belongs to the church of Christ, which needs no other name, which has to show no outer feature than just the effectiveness of the power of the spirit, which is also outwardly recognizable through a life in love and wisdom. But when man is follower of that church then he is also loyal to that church until the end because who once stands in living faith, he also has light in himself, which shines for ever – he stands in truth and will now also be able to be active enlightening because the spirit in him drives him to that end. His faith is unshakeable and therefore like a rock, which defies all onslaughts – and the gates of hell will accomplish nothing against such faith and never ever shake the church of Christ – as Christ has promised. His church is unconquerable and will remain so until all eternity. Amen. B.D. NR. 3729.
