Signs and Wonders


          The Sword-Bishop absolutely detests wonder-seeking and an idolisa-
          tion of his person. It is for this reason that he has always remained silent
          about the signs and wonders he was allowed to work in the Name of
          GOD. Well, he even wanted to have his will drawn up and sealed,
          stating that it is to be kept secret beyond the grave. Now the SAVIOUR
          wishes these, as they are TESTIMONIES of GOD, to be published. In
          compliance with this wish, explicitly bearing witness to the working of
          GOD, the Sword-Bishop now allows a publication of the same.
          „You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither
          do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it
          gives light to all in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that
          they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heav-
          en.“ Mt 5,14-16
          When the Sword-Bishop raises the dead, heals the sick, drives out evil
          spirits, then he does nothing but what JESUS instructed His Church to
          do: „He called to him his twelve disciples and gave them power over
          unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every
          infirmity. … ‚And preach as you go, saying: the kingdom of heaven is at
          hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons!
          Freely you have received, freely give.‘“ Mt 10,1,7-8

          The Church of CHRIST is where also testimony is given of this inherit-
          ance of JESUS. The Acts of the Apostles deals profusely with these signs
          and wonders, and also for the Sword-Bishop these testimonies are con-
          stant companions. But just as Peter, after healing the lame man at the
          Beautiful Gate, firmly rebuked the people gazing in amazement, so too
          would the Sword-Bishop like to call out seeing the working of GOD
          forgotten and his own person being honoured:

          „… Why do you marvel at this? Or why do you stare at us as if by our
          own power or godliness we had made him walk? The God of Abraham
          and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers,
          has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied …“
          Acts 3,12-13
