The Hymn of God’s Word “The Countenance of the Kingdom’s King Is Glorious Beyond Compare”

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Countenance of the Kingdom’s King Is Glorious Beyond Compare”

I

God has made a new beginning on Earth,

so on Earth He has found His glory.

The final prospect is so beauteous

God cannot keep the pride

in His breast from swelling.

God’s heart is beating,

and the hills leap for joy in time.

The waters dance merrily,

and the waves keep time,

slapping against the rocks.

God’s heart is ineffable.

From this we see,

what God plans is just what He has made,

is what He’s foreordained,

and asks that man should experience,

that man should see. Continue reading

The Hymn of God’s Word “Notions and Imagination Will Never Help You Know God”

The Hymn of God’s Word “Notions and Imagination Will Never Help You Know God”

I

Knowledge of God relies not upon experience nor imagination. These must never be imposed upon God. For no matter how rich human experience and fancy are, they’re limited, they are not fact nor truth, being also incompatible with God’s real disposition, being also inconsistent with God’s real substance. God’s righteous disposition is His own true substance; it’s not dictated by man, nor akin to His creation. God is God after all, He is never a part of His own creation. Even if He joins in, His disposition, essence won’t change, won’t change.

II

Therefore, knowledge of God comes not from perceiving, perceiving objects, nor from dissecting matter, nor from understanding other humans. The knowledge of God won’t be attained through such means and ways. Knowledge of God relies not on experience nor fantasy. They’re limited, they are not, they are not fact nor truth. God’s righteous disposition is His own true substance; it is not dictated by man, nor akin to His creation. God is God after all, He is never a part of His own creation. Even if He joins in, His disposition, essence won’t change. One will never comprehend God, relying upon his imagination. The only path to knowing God is thus: Accept all that comes from Him, experience it bit by bit. Continue reading

The Hymn of God’s Word “Truth Is the Highest of All Life’s Aphorisms”

The Hymn of God’s Word “Truth Is the Highest of All Life’s Aphorisms”

I

Truth” is the most real of life’s aphorisms, and the highest one among all humanity. It’s called “life’s aphorisms” because it’s what, because it’s what God asks of man and is work done by Him personally, God asks of man and is work done by Him personally. It’s not a saying summed up from something, nor a famous quote from someone great, someone great. But it’s an utterance to mankind from the Master of all things on earth and in heaven.

II

It’s not some words summed up by mankind, but the inherent life of God, God Himself. It’s thus the “highest of all life’s aphorisms.” To practice the truth is to fulfill one’s duty, and satisfy what God requires, God requires. It’s not a saying summed up from something, nor a famous quote from someone great, someone great. But it’s an utterance to mankind from the Master of all things on earth and in heaven.

III

The essence of this “requirement” is in fact the most real of all truths, and not some empty doctrine unachievable. It’s not a saying summed up from something, nor a famous quote from someone great, someone great. But it’s an utterance to mankind from the Master of all things on earth and in heaven. It’s not a saying summed up from something, nor a famous quote from someone great, someone great. But it’s an utterance to mankind from the Master of all things on earth and in heaven.

The Hymn of God’s Word “Only Those Who Have Been Cleansed Will Enter the Final Rest”

The Hymn of God’s Word “Only Those Who Have Been Cleansed Will Enter the Final Rest”

The human race of the future, though descended from Adam and Eve, will no longer live under Satan’s domain, but a race of the saved, the cleansed. This is a humanity judged and chastised, a humanity that’s been sanctified. They are different from that ancient race, that ancient race of Adam and Eve, so different as almost to be a new race entirely. Chosen from those corrupted by Satan, standing firm in God’s final judgment, this last group remaining, along with God, can enter the final rest.

Only those who can stand firm through judgment and chastisement of the last days, in the final work of cleansing, they may enter final rest with God. This is a humanity judged and chastised, a humanity that’s been sanctified. They are different from that ancient race, that ancient race of Adam and Eve, so different as almost to be a new race entirely. Chosen from those corrupted by Satan, standing firm in God’s final judgment, this last group remaining, along with God, can enter the final rest. Continue reading

Best Christian Song | God Is With You | “God’s Care Is Always With Mankind”

Christian Hymn | God Is With You | “God’s Care Is Always With Mankind”

I

God looks over creation, watching, day after day, observing. Humbly He hides Himself, tasting this human life, watching man’s every deed. Who has truly offered themselves to God? Who has ever pursued the truth? Who has taken God earnestly, kept promises made, and followed their duty to God? Who has ever let God dwell inside them? Who has valued God as they would their own life? Who has ever seen His full divine being, or been willing to touch God Himself? When people sink in the waters, God saves them. When they cannot face life, God lifts them and gives them the courage to live again, and gives them a second chance. So they will take Him as their foundation. When they disobey, God takes this chance to let them know Him. Continue reading

The Hymn of God’s Word “Christ of the Last Days Brings the Way of Eternal Life”

The Hymn of God’s Word “Christ of the Last Days Brings the Way of Eternal Life”

I

God Himself is life and truth, and His life and truth are intertwined. Those who gain not His truth, gain not life. Without receiving the guidance and support of His truth, man is left with mere letters and doctrines, man is left with death. God’s life and truth are intertwined and ever-present. If you know not the source of truth, you receive not the nourishment of life. Christ of the last days brings life and carries enduring and everlasting truth. This truth is the path that man must walk to gain life. It is the only path to knowing God and receiving His approval.

II

To ignore the path of life brought by Christ of the last days is to forsake the approval of Jesus, and turn yourself away from the kingdom of heaven. You become a puppet and prisoner of history. If you gain not the provision of life, you surely possess not the truth. You are merely putrid flesh, just empty imagination and fruitless ideation. Christ of the last days brings life and carries enduring and everlasting truth. This truth is the path that man must walk to gain life. It is the only path to knowing God and receiving His approval. The words in books are not life, the records of history are not truth, the old ways of the past are not the records of the words God speaks today. The truth is expressed only by God on the earth and God among man. He expresses God’s will and His way of working. Continue reading

The Hymn of God’s Word “When You Open Your Heart to God”

The Hymn of God’s Word “When You Open Your Heart to God”

When you do not understand God and do not know His nature,

your hearts can never truly open, open up to God.

Once you understand your God, you will understand what’s in His heart,

and savor what lies in Him with all your faith and heed.

When you savor what is in God’s heart, bit by bit, day by day,

when you savor what is in God’s heart, your heart will open up to Him.

When your heart is truly open, when your heart is truly open,

you will see the contempt, you will see the shame

of your extravagant and selfish requests.

When your heart is truly open, when your heart is truly open,

you will see an infinite world in God’s heart, and be in a realm of wonder untold.

No more darkness, evil, no deception, when you open your heart to God.

Only truth, only faith, only light, all is just, when you open your heart to God.

He is love, He is caring, infinite compassion.

In your life, joy is felt, when you open your heart to God.

His wisdom and power fill the world, so do His authority and love.

You can see what God has and is,

what brings Him joy, what brings Him woes,

what brings Him sadness and anger, is there for all to see,

when you open your heart up to God and invite Him in.
