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.

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Existence of All Mankind Rests on God”

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Existence of All Mankind Rests on God”

God’s final work is not just to punish man,

but to arrange man’s destination,

and to achieve everyone’s recognition of all that God has done for them.

God wants every single person to see that everything He’s done is correct,

that all that He has done is an expression of His disposition.

Without God, mankind can only perish and only be plagued by calamity;

no one will see the green world again,

nor the beauty of the sun and the moon.

Without God, man will cease moving forward;

without God, man can only suffer

and be trod upon by all manner of ghosts,

even though none take heed of Him.

Mankind shall only face the frigid night

and the inexorable valley of the shadow of death.

God is man’s only salvation, hope,

and the one on whom the existence of all mankind rests.

It is certainly not the doing of man, nor did nature create human beings.

Rather, it is God who nourishes every living soul among all things.

Without God, mankind can only perish and only be plagued by calamity;

no one will see the green world again,

nor the beauty of the sun and the moon.

Without God, man will cease moving forward;

without God, man can only suffer

and be trod upon by all manner of ghosts,

even though none take heed of Him.

The work that has been done by God cannot be replaced by anyone.

All He hopes is that man can repay Him

through deeds that are good, that are good.

The work that has been done by God cannot be replaced by anyone.

All He hopes is that man can repay Him

through deeds that are good, that are good.

Without God, man will cease moving forward;

without God, man can only suffer

and be trod upon by all manner of ghosts,

even though none take heed of Him.

Without God, man will cease moving forward;

without God, man can only suffer

and be trod upon by all manner of ghosts,

even though none take heed of Him.

Eastern Lightning | We believe that the Lord’s precious blood has already cleansed us and we have been sanctified and no longer belong to sin, so there is no need for us to receive the work of purification. Why is such a saying not right?

  The answer from God’s word:

  “You only know that Jesus shall descend during the last days, but how exactly will He descend? A sinner such as you, who has just been redeemed, and has not been changed, or been perfected by God, can you be after God’s heart? For you, you who are still of your old self, it is true that you were saved by Jesus, and that you are not counted as sinners because of the salvation of God, but this does not prove that you are not sinful, and are not impure. How can you be saintly if you have not been changed? Within, you are beset by impurity, selfish and mean, yet you still wish to descend with Jesus—you should be so lucky! You have missed a step in your belief in God: You have merely been redeemed, but have not been changed. For you to be after God’s heart, God must personally do the work of changing and cleansing you; if you are only redeemed, you will be incapable of attaining sanctity. In this way you will be unqualified to share in the good blessings of God, for you have missed out a step in God’s work of managing man, which is the key step of changing and perfecting. And so you, a sinner who has just been redeemed, are incapable of directly inheriting God’s inheritance.” Continue reading

Eastern Lightning| Preface

  Though many people believe in God, few understand what faith in God means, and what they must do to be after God’s heart. This is because, though people are familiar with the word “God” and phrases such as “the work of God,” they do not know God, much less do they know His work. No wonder, then, that all those who do not know God are possessed of a muddled belief. People do not take belief in God seriously because believing in God is too unfamiliar, too strange for them. In this way, they fall short of the demands of God. In other words, if people do not know God, do not know His work, then they are not fit for God’s use, much less can they fulfill the desire of God. “Belief in God” means believing that there is a God; this is the simplest concept of faith in God. What’s more, believing that there is a God is not the same as truly believing in God; rather, it is a kind of simple faith with strong religious overtones. True faith in God means experiencing the words and work of God based on a belief that God holds sovereignty over all things. So you shall be freed of your corrupt disposition, shall fulfill the desire of God, and shall come to know God. Only through such a journey can you be said to believe in God. Yet people often see belief in God as something very simple and frivolous. The belief of such people is meaningless and shall never gain the approval of God, because they tread the wrong path. Today, there are still those who believe in God in letters, in hollow doctrines. They are unaware that their belief in God has no substance, and that they are unable to gain the approval of God, and they still pray for peace and sufficient grace from God. We should stop and ask ourselves: Could believing in God really be the easiest thing on earth? Does believing in God mean nothing more than receiving much grace from God? Can people who believe in God but do not know Him, and believe in God yet oppose Him, really fulfill the desire of God? Continue reading

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Significance of God’s Name” | The Church of Almighty God

The Significance of God’s Name

Accompaniment: In each age (each age) and each stage of work (each stage of work), God’s name is not baseless, but holds representative significance (representative significance): (ah) each name (each name) represents one, one age.

1. Although Jehovah, Jesus, and the Messiah all represent God’s Spirit, these names only denote the different ages in God’s management plan, and do not represent Him in His entirety. The names by which people on earth call God cannot articulate His entire disposition and all that He is. They are merely different names by which God is called during different ages. And so, when the final age—the age of the last days—arrives, God’s name shall change again. He shall not be called Jehovah, or Jesus, much less the Messiah, but shall be called the powerful Almighty God Himself,and under this name He shall bring the entire age to an end. Continue reading

The Spiritual Awakening – “For Whom Man Should Live” (Official Music Video)

For Whom Man Should Live
I
For whom man should live? Now I’ve come to realize the truth.
I used to live for myself, totally for the sake of fame and status.
I said every fine word in prayer while going my own way in reality.
For prospects and fate I believed in God, possessed of no truth or reality.
Living in religious rituals, I was left with nothing but emptiness.
I failed to live out human likeness, unworthy of receiving God’s love. Continue reading

The Hymn of God’s Word “The Authority and Power God Displays When Incarnated in the Flesh”

 

The Authority and Power God Displays When Incarnated in the Flesh

God came to earth mainly to accomplish the fact,
the fact of “the Word becoming flesh,” “the Word becoming flesh.”
That is, God’s words emanate from the flesh, God’s words emanate from the flesh,
(unlike in the Old Testament, in Moses’ day, God spoke directly from heaven).
Then, they will all be fulfilled in the Age of Millennial Kingdom
to become facts that, the facts that people can see,
so that everyone can see the exact fulfillment with their own eyes.
This is the profound meaning of God, of God becoming flesh.
That is, the work of the Spirit, of the Spirit is accomplished
through the flesh and the word, through the flesh and the word.
This is the true meaning of “the Word becoming flesh,
the Word appearing in the flesh, the Word appearing in the flesh.” Continue reading
