And then it will also be shown, how little the church keeps, what it promises, which calls itself the alone beatifying one how all those will secede, who certainly belonged to it, but not to my church; who now recognize their unfoundedness, but not the spiritual value of that church, which is founded on that faith, which has the strength of a Peter.

The alone beatifying church.

4. August 1952. B.D. NR. 5456.

There is no alone beatifying church, when an organization is understood by it. But who belongs to the church founded by me on earth, he will also attain salvation, for this already guarantees him everlasting salvation that he is a member of my church; that he therefore lives in faith, which has become a living one through love. Not the "church" safeguards man salvation, but faith and love but which can also be completely lacking despite the belonging to a church, which has been called into life by men and is supposed to be founded by me as the "alone beatifying" church. From every church or intellectual direction can certainly emerge true members of my church, for only faith and love determine this; but a man can never belong to this my church, who cannot show the signs of it my spirit work, which has faith and love as foundation. My kingdom is not of this world, and so also my words were certainly directed to men of this world, but they had spiritual meaning, for they were to help establish my spiritual kingdom; they were given with regard to that kingdom, which exists outside of this world, which does not pass in eternity. That what I demanded of men, should secure them eternal life in the spiritual kingdom; my requirements on earth were certainly to be fulfilled, but not with earthly acts, with which the soul could be uninvolved but the soul must comply with my will. It alone must achieve its reshaping, and so it sincerely strives for it, it is already a member of my church, for then man also has faith, and what drives him inwardly to eager striving, that is my spirit, my voice, which he hears and to which he makes an effort to obey it. And this spirit work proves the belonging to my church which then certainly also beatifies. I brought the pure Gospel to men; I enlightened men about everything, what was necessary to be able to enter my kingdom, which is not of this world. I taught them practising love and therefore set the way for them, which leads up into the kingdom of happiness; I gathered around me all, who up to now were taught wrong, and therefore I was their preacher, who supported his church and wanted to give its beatifying effect to men, who listened to him. I consequently established the genuine church, when I walked on earth, and received in it all Jews, heathens, tax collectors and sinners and who believed in me, who accepted my teaching and lived accordingly, to them I also sent my spirit after my death the symbol of my church, which cannot be overcome by the gates of hell. But where is the spirit work in that church, which calls itself "alone beatifying"? My spirit can certainly also blow there; but then the connection with my church must have preceded, for alone I pour out my spirit, and always only there, where the conditions are fulfilled, which result in the work of my spirit. And there also the true church of Christ will be recognizable, for no matter what action is taken against men, who belong to it, they will not be able to be overcome or pushed away, an no matter whether hell itself takes action against it it is unconquerable, because it is my work because it alone is the spiritual church, which leads to happiness, because in it can be no pretence Christians, since these exclude themselves from a community of believers and for that reason are also no real Christ confessors and believing supporters of my name, when they are put to the test. And this faith test will be demanded of them; it is demanded of all, who call themselves believing, and then it will be shown, who belongs to the real church, that church, which I myself have established; then it will be shown, where my spirit is effective and which power it is able to give to those, who are attacked for the sake of my name, but who will joyfully confess me before the world, so the decision is demanded. And then it will also be shown, how little the church keeps, what it promises, which calls itself the alone beatifying one how all those will secede, who certainly belonged to it, but not to my church; who now recognize their unfoundedness, but not the spiritual value of that church, which is founded on that faith, which has the strength of a Peter. For each one of my words was and is to be understood spiritually and can also only then be understood, so my spirit can have an effect in a man. But then his faith is alive, and he just strives for that kingdom only, which is not of this world. Amen.
B.D. NR. 5456.
