What Goedbericht Believes…

index_4 CONCERNING GOD: God is GOD, i.e. He it is that gives everything a place. Never does anything go wrong with Him. The evil in the world (sin and suffering) plays an essential role in His plan of the eons more

There is one God the Father, the invisible, OUT OF Whom all is. Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, is the Image of God, the firstborn of every creature, THROUGH Whom all is. more

THE EVANGEL The Evangel as Paul preached it, is the message that Christ Jesus, the promised Messiah, by His death and resurrection Lord and Savior of all. more

God is the Saviour of all mankind. The same as all the people are sinners and mortals, even so all of them will be justified and be  made alive. more

The cross of Calvary proves that no enmity, however great,  God’s love surpasses it. Through the cross, God will reconcile every creature with Him. more

SCRIPTURE: All Scripture is inspired of God. Paul is the one who has completed the Word of God, i.e., the complete 70 books of the Bible more

It is unnecessary to defend the Bible, because it proves and explains itself.

THE PRESENT TIME: Paul is the apostle and teacher of the nations during the present (interim) period of Israel’s disbelief. The “Evangel of the Uncircumcision” was committed to Paul. It is expressly distinguished from “the evangel of the circumcision” that was given to “the twelve” to preach. more

At the present time, God is not aiming to reveal the Kingdom directly associated with Israel. On the contrary: In secret, He calls, by the preaching of the Evangel among the nations an ecclesia, the body of Christ. The ecclesia is a community of believers, coming together in freedom, beyond the constraints of human systems. It is through the Word of God, nourished and led by Christ, her Head. Rituals (i.e. water baptism) and special days (eg. the Sabbath), which play an important role for Israel, are for the ecclesia unimportant. more

FAITH: God reckons faith for righteousness. Faith means trusting in God’s promises. Faith is in direct opposition to every effort of man on his own, trying to earn God’s favor by means of work. Living by faith means: thanking God for what HE gives and realizing that He is able to do much more in and through us… more

DEATH Death is not another form of life, but the opposite of life. The Biblical expectation is revealed to be the vivification and the resurrection of the dead. more

THE FUTURE The Ecclesia, the body of Christ, will meet her Lord in the air, when she will be evacuated (snatched away) from the coming wrath. That day will not overtake her as a thief in the night, because she will be aware of the times and occasions. more

When the ecclesia will have reached her heavenly destination, then God will again pick up ‘the thread’ with the people of Israel. The Messiah will return to the Mount of Olives and restore the nation of Israel and fulfill all the prophecies of this nation and make it a channel of blessing for all the people, worldwide. The Bible speaks about God’s judgments. These may be severe but never endless. God has salvation of all His creatures in view. The return of Christ is not the beginning of an endless eternity, but the beginning of “the oncoming eons” during which Christ will reign. When Christ, eventually, will also have abolished death, as the last enemy, He will hand over the perfected kingdom to God the Father and God will then become all in all. more
