When we stand in reverence before God, our first, intuitive experience of him is of an almighty power, before which all human strength is a mere nothing. Like Elijah, the first prophets veiled their heads in shuddering awe when God was about to draw near to them.- Eberhard Arnold

God is called, “I am Who I am. I am the unchangeable one. I am the one who remains. I am the one who always remains the same.” His will does not bend. He does not conform to certain things or certain people. And we shall experience this when we learn to listen to the Spirit, when we hearken to the wind that comes to us from God. So we shall be unanimous in silence. Meeting in silence, we shall hear the same voice and perceive the same truth. So unity comes into being, unity of heart and of voice, when we hear this voice and see this light.

The rebirth Jesus spoke about to the man who came to Him at night means repentance. (John 3:1ff.) And repentance means a thorough upheaval. In this rebirth we are exonerated from all our sins, we are redeemed because our sins are forgiven and overcome through Jesus, the Crucified and Risen One.- Eberhard Arnold, November 1917
Where the Kingdom of God, the rule of Christ, is being proclaimed, things start happening. That is why John the Baptist was challenged: Why are you asking? Look at what is happening, listen to what is being said, and accept it. This is what is happening here: The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised. (Matt. 11:5)- Eberhard Arnold
Jesus is saying that if only you could believe what is actually happening, Christ would be revealed to you, and your questions about God’s Kingdom would be answered. That is what faith means.
