God personally gives testimony to everyone He appoints and makes use of. At the very least, they all receive the confirmation of the work of the Holy Spirit, exhibit the fruits of the Holy Spirit’s work, and can help God’s chosen people receive the provision of life and true shepherding. Because God is righteous and holy, everyone He appoints and uses must accord with God’s will. Pastors and elders from the religious world all lack the word of God as testimony, and also lack the confirmation of the work of the Holy Spirit. So how could pastors and elders within the religious world be personally appointed and used by God? Continue reading
The answer from God’s word:
“… first, He is able to open up a new age; second, He is able to supply the life of man and show man the way to follow. This is sufficient to establish that He is God Himself. At the very least, the work He does can fully represent the Spirit of God, and from such work it can be seen that the Spirit of God is within Him. As the work done by the incarnate God was mainly to usher in a new age, lead new work, and open up new circumstances, these few conditions alone are sufficient to establish that He is God Himself. …”

Results of God’s Work in the Last Days Are Achieved Through the Word
The results of God’s work in the last days are achieved through the word, through the word. The word helps man understand mysteries and God’s work throughout history. It brings man enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, and knowledge of mysteries sealed for centuries. It explains the work of prophets and apostles and the rules when they carried it out. The word makes man know God’s disposition, as well as his own rebelliousness and substance. Through these steps of work and all words spoken, man comes to know the work of the Spirit, and know the work of God’s incarnate flesh, moreover the entirety of His disposition. Your knowledge of God’s 6,000-year work was also attained through the word. Know your old notions and put them aside— was not it too attained through the word? In the previous stage Jesus displayed miracles, but it’s not so in this last stage. Wasn’t it through the word that you finally understood why you don’t see any signs now? The words spoken in this stage surpass work done by apostles and the prophets of the past. Even for prophecies made by the prophets, such results could not have come to pass. The prophets only prophesied what would happen in the future, but not of the work God was to do at the time. They didn’t speak to lead man, bestow truth, reveal mysteries, and much less did they speak, and much less did they speak to bestow life. Words spoken in this stage contain prophecy and truth, but mainly serve to bestow life upon man. Unlike the prophecies of the prophets, the words at present are a stage of work for man’s life, to change his disposition. Continue reading
God’s Love and Essence Has Always Been Selfless
God gives His best, His best side He gives. The best things, very best things, He gives.
Never disclosing or showing His suffering. God, He endures, waiting in silence. Not cold or numb, not a sign of weakness. God’s essence and His love are always selfless. God gives His best, His best side He gives. The best things, very best things, He gives. For all mankind, He suffers; He suffers, bearing quietly. Quietly He gives, He gives His best.
Never disclosing or showing His suffering. God, He endures, waiting in silence. This is the expression of His essence and disposition, of who He really is: the Creator of all things. God gives His best, His best side He gives. The best things, very best things, He gives. For all mankind, He suffers; He suffers, bearing quietly. Quietly He gives, He gives His best. He gives His best, He gives His best. Continue reading
The Glorious Countenance of the King of the Kingdom Is Beyond Comparison
1. God has a new start and has gained glory on earth. Because of the final beautiful prospect, God cannot help expressing the excitement in His heart: God’s heart beats and, following the rhythms of God’s heartbeat, the mountains leap for joy, the waters dance with joy, and the waves, keeping time, beat upon the rocky reefs. It is difficult to express what is in God’s heart. It shows that what God has planned is just what God has accomplished and what God has preordained, and is just what God requires people to experience and see. Continue reading
God Treats Man as His Dearest One
1. God created mankind, whether mankind has been corrupted or mankind can follow him, and he treats mankind as his nearest relation, as his dearest one spoken of by mankind, rather than a plaything, a plaything. Although God says that he is the Creator and mankind is the created being, and this word sounds as if there is some difference between them in rank, sounds as if there is some difference between them in rank, in fact, all that God has done for mankind is far beyond this relationship. God loves mankind, takes care of mankind, and shows concern for mankind, shows concern for mankind, loves mankind, takes care of mankind, and shows concern for mankind, shows concern for mankind, and he also unfailingly supplies mankind; in his heart he has never felt that these are extra things or felt that these are things doing great credit to him, felt that these are things doing great credit to him.
2. Nor has he ever felt that his saving mankind, supplying mankind, and bestowing everything to mankind is a great, great contribution to mankind. Nor has he ever felt that his saving mankind, supplying mankind, and bestowing everything to mankind is a great contribution to mankind. He just supplies mankind, supplies mankind silently and quietly like this in his own way and with his own substance and with what he has and is. No matter how much supply and help man has received from him, he does not have any thought or action of taking credit from man. This is determined by God’s substance, and this is precisely a true expression of God’s disposition, this is precisely a true expression of God’s disposition.
