Then it will be shown who belongs to this church, who possesses the strength of faith that he does not defect when hell will charge against everything spiritual. Read more:

Church of Christ. You are Peter, the rock.

24. May 1948. B.D. NR. 4312.

A faith community according to Christ means the unification of men, who through their walk of life, through unselfish neighbourly love acquired such a living, deep faith that they understand everything what Jesus taught on earth and therefore also oppose no word with doubts, because the understanding of that what God requires to believe, is always just the result of a walk of life led right and will also always result in a living faith, the conviction of pure truth and therefore also a power awareness of being able to do everything that just has faith as reason. Such a community is the true church of Christ; it is that church, which he has founded on earth with the words: "Thou art Peter, the rock, upon you I will build my church." And this church will remain in existence; it will not be able to be shaken by the powers of the underworld, when the last fight on earth will break out against faith. Then it will be shown who belongs to this church, who possesses the strength of faith that he does not defect when hell will charge against everything spiritual. Then only the people truly active in love will stand firm, whose faith is a living one, because the others will be too weak to resist. Everything will be taken from them, what was comprehensible to them under church until now; every ceremony, every external appearance will fall away; the places of church actions will be closed down or destroyed; no possibility will exist to carry out those actions, which appeared important to them, and they will seriously be put before the decision, to declare their support for or against God. But the decision will not be difficult for those who have the living faith, who can believe, because they arise, while the others, still blind in the spirit, have nothing to which they can keep and defect from God for the sake of their bodily well-being, who give up their faith, because it was just a dead faith, a form faith. But you, you who belong to the church of Christ, you are to promote this church uninterruptedly; you are to bring enlightenment to men and seek to explain the difference to them, so that they fashion their form faith to a living faith; you are to show them the way to understanding of that, what Jesus has taught, and tell them to go the way of love, which alone gives birth to a living faith and leads to the full understanding of his word. Only this small community of the true church of Christ will overcome the last fight, because before war will be declared on every school of thought and will lose all their followers, who do not belong to the true church of Christ. But God will grant them his help; he will be in the midst of them, strengthen their faith, enlighten their spirit and give them power to hold out until the end. And for the sake of this church of Christ he works obviously among men through his spirit he instructs them and supplies his word to earth, so that his church wins followers, so that they are strengthened extraordinarily through his word, which comes from above and is blessed with his power. Amen. B.D. NR. 4312.
