God reveals his identity in an obvious way to men, who represent no official school of thought but prove to be followers of the church of Christ only through their way of life – who therefore live as Christ taught men on earth, and through this are filled with the spirit of God like him.

The following message from Bertha Dudde says that God reveals his identity in an obvious way to men, who represent no official school of thought but prove to be followers of the church of Christ only through their way of life.

That means that God therefore does not reveal his identity in an obvious way to all men who represent an official school of thought.

Official schools of thought are among others denominations, therefore churches like the Catholic and the Protestant and the rest of the man-made churches.

The Bible calls such people carnal. This is explained in 1 Corinthians 3:1-4.

They are no spiritual people.

Now the message:

 

The mystery of divine revelations

14. September 1945. B.D. NR. 3548.

The mystery of divine revelation is that God reveals his identity in an obvious way to men, who represent no official school of thought but prove to be followers of the church of Christ only through their way of life – who therefore live as Christ taught men on earth, and through this are filled with the spirit of God like him. Moreover they must believe in the work of the spirit, in God’s eternal love, which wants to announce itself to men. They must believe the intimate contact with God is possible; they must believe that God expresses himself as soon as he is approached because of it, and because this faith is only seldom found divine revelations always remain something mysterious for men, although they are just a natural result of deep faith and an intimate connection with God. Everything remains mysterious for men what he cannot explain to himself earthly. A divine revelation comes from the spiritual kingdom and will therefore also only find the explanation spiritually. But that is why man must lead a spiritual life himself next to his earthly, to be able to establish the truth of divine revelations for himself, so far as the work of the spirit is explained to man through it. And when he then earnestly works on himself, i.e. leads his way of life according to divine revelations, which express God’s will, he will himself belong to those who are deemed worthy of direct divine revelation. For himself it is then no longer a mystery but only a gladdening knowledge being intimately connected with God that he can hear his voice. That God now wants to present a knowledge to men through his revelations, which corresponds to truth, presupposes a mediator, a man who is able to receive the word in intimate connection, and willing to carry it further into the world. And therefore he elects his servants on earth. He makes them to his apostles to whom he again teaches his word and trains to carriers of truth on earth. And the way of his teaching is mysterious, however only for the unbeliever and the ignorant because he does not acknowledge God and therefore also does not want to recognize his work. But who believes in God, in his love and omnipotence, for him nothing is impossible and unfounded what appears exceptional. And this faith also enables him to receive the divine word. He therefore lets himself be taught by God himself – and consequently he receives divine wisdom. God reveals himself to him through his spirit. This is something so powerful , exalted; it testifies to the over great love of a being, which in its highest perfection condescends to its creatures having become imperfect, by speaking to them. An over favoured process for man who feels as his child and who finds an explanation in the love of the father, and a mysterious process for him who does not know the power of divine love, however cannot turn away the revelation. Who is therefore appointed to receive it, he belongs to the chosen, which have to fulfil a mission on earth. And because they stand in knowledge, they are willing servants of God; they let themselves be guided by him and do not resist him; they have subordinated their will to God and are only the organ through which God himself speaks to men because they urgently need his word. God always reveals himself in times of need, and this must always be acknowledged as work of the spirit who can only develop there where faith is deep and the way of life of man corresponds to divine commandments – where the teaching of Christ is followed and man through this stands in intimate association with God, who now fills him with his power and now works himself in him. Amen. B.D. NR. 3548.
