The Word of God “Knowing the Three Stages of God’s Work Is the Path to Knowing God” (Part One)

The Word of God “Knowing the Three Stages of God’s Work Is the Path to Knowing God” (Part One)

Almighty God says, “The three stages of work are at the heart of God’s entire management, and in them are expressed the disposition of God and what He is. Those who do not know of the three stages of God’s work are incapable of realizing how God expresses His disposition, nor do they know the wisdom of God’s work, and they remain ignorant of the many ways in which He saves mankind, and His will for the whole of mankind. The three stages of work are the full expression of the work of saving mankind. Those who do not know the three stages of work will be ignorant of the various methods and principles of the Holy Spirit’s work; those who only rigidly stick to doctrine that remains from one stage of work are people who limit God to doctrine, and whose belief in God is vague and uncertain. Such people will never receive God’s salvation.”

Only Those Who Know the Work of God Today Can Serve God

Only Those Who Know the Work of God Today Can Serve God

    To bear testimony to God and shame the great red dragon you must have a principle, and a condition: In your heart you must love God, and enter into the words of God. If you do not enter into the words of God, then you will have no way of shaming Satan. Through the growth of your life, you renounce the great red dragon and bring utter humiliation upon it, and only then is the great red dragon truly shamed. The more you are willing to put the words of God into practice, the greater the proof of your love of God and loathing of the great red dragon; the more you obey the words of God, the greater the proof of your longing for the truth. People who do not long for the words of God are people who are without life. Such people are those who are outside the words of God, and who belong to religion. People who truly believe in God have a more profound knowledge of God’s words through eating and drinking the words of God. If you do not long for the words of God, then you cannot truly eat and drink the words of God, and if you have no knowledge of the words of God, then you have no means of testifying to God or satisfying God.

Almighty God’s Word “The Difference Between the Ministry of the Incarnate God and the Duty of Man”

Almighty God’s Word “The Difference Between the Ministry of the Incarnate God and the Duty of Man”

Almighty God says, “Whether the incarnate God speaks, works, or manifests wonders, He is doing great work within His management, and such work cannot be done by man in His stead. The work of man is only to do his duty as a created being in a given stage of God’s work of management. Without such management, that is, if the ministry of God incarnate is lost, so too is the duty of a created being. God’s work in carrying out His ministry is to manage man, whereas man doing his duty is the performance of his own obligations to meet the demands of the Creator and can in no way be considered to be carrying out one’s ministry. To the inherent essence of God, that is, Spirit, the work of God is His management, but to God incarnate wearing the external form of a created being, His work is the carrying out of His ministry. Whatever work He does is to carry out His ministry, and man can only do his best within His scope of management and under His leadership.”

The Essential Difference Between the Incarnate God and the People Used by God

God’s Spirit, God’s work, in the Flesh,  God’s will, Serve God ,

    For so many years God’s Spirit has been ceaselessly searching as He goes working upon the earth. Throughout the ages God has used so many people to do His work. Yet God’s Spirit still has no suitable resting place. So God does His work, ceaselessly moving about in different people, and on the whole He uses people in order to do this. That is, in all these many years, God’s work has never stopped, but keeps being carried forward in man, all the way down to this day. Although God has spoken so many words and done so much work, man still does not know God, all because God has never appeared to man and also because He has no tangible form. And so God must bring this work to completion—causing all men to know the practical significance of the practical God. To achieve this end, God must reveal His Spirit tangibly to humanity and do His work in their midst. That is, only when God’s Spirit assumes physical form, puts on flesh and bone, and visibly walks among people, accompanying them in their lives, sometimes showing and sometimes hiding Himself, only then are people able to arrive at a deeper understanding of Him. If God only remained in the flesh, He would not be able to fully complete His work. After working in the flesh for a period of time, fulfilling the ministry that needs to be done in the flesh, God will depart the flesh and work in the spiritual realm in the image of the flesh just as Jesus did so after He had worked for a period of time in normal humanity and completed all the work that He needed to complete. You may remember this passage from “The Path … (5)”: “I remember My Father saying to Me, ‘On earth, only do Your Father’s will and complete His commission. Nothing else concerns You.’” What do you see in this passage? When God comes to the earth, He does only His work within divinity. This is what the heavenly Spirit has entrusted to the incarnate God. When He comes, He goes only to speak everywhere, to give voice to His utterances in different methods and from different perspectives. He chiefly takes supplying man and teaching man as His goals and working principle, and does not concern Himself with such things as interpersonal relationships or the details of people’s lives. His main ministry is to speak for the Spirit. When God’s Spirit appears tangibly in the flesh, He only provides for man’s life and releases the truth. He does not get involved in man’s work, which is to say, He does not participate in the work of humanity. Humans cannot do divine work, and God does not participate in human work. In all the years since God came to this earth to do His work, He has always done it through people. But these people cannot be considered God incarnate, only people who are used by God. But the God of today can speak directly from the perspective of divinity, sending forth the Spirit’s voice and working on behalf of the Spirit. All those people whom God has used throughout the ages are likewise instances of God’s Spirit working within a fleshly body, so why can’t they be called God? But today’s God is also God’s Spirit working directly in the flesh, and Jesus too was God’s Spirit working in the flesh; both of these are called God. So what’s the difference? Throughout the ages, the people God has used are all capable of normal thought and reason. They all know the principles of human conduct. They hold normal human ideas, and they are equipped with all the things ordinary people should have. Most of them have exceptional talent and innate intelligence. In working upon these people, God’s Spirit harnesses their talents, which are their God-given gifts. God’s Spirit brings their talents into play, using their strengths in God’s service. However, God’s essence is free of ideas and free of thought, unadulterated with human intentions, and even lacks what normal humans are equipped with. That is to say, He is not even conversant with the principles of human conduct. This is how it is when today’s God comes to the earth. His work and His words are unadulterated with human intentions or human thought, but they are a direct manifestation of the intentions of the Spirit, and He works directly in God’s behalf. This means that the Spirit directly speaks, that is, the divinity directly does the work, without mixing in even one bit of man’s intentions. In other words, the incarnate God embodies divinity directly, is without human thought or ideas, and has no understanding of the principles of human conduct. If only divinity were at work (meaning if only God Himself were at work), there would be no way for God’s work to be carried out on earth. So when God comes to earth, He has to have a small number of people He uses to work within humanity in conjunction with the work that God does in divinity. In other words, He uses human work to uphold His divine work. Otherwise, there would be no way for man to come into direct contact with the divine work. This is how it was with Jesus and His disciples. During His time in the world, Jesus abolished the old laws and established new commandments. He also spoke many words. All this work was done in divinity. The others, such as Peter, Paul, and John, all rested their subsequent work on the foundation of Jesus’ words. That is, God was launching His work in that age, ushering in the beginning of the Age of Grace; that is, He brought in a new era, abolishing the old, and also fulfilling the words “God is the Beginning and the End.” In other words, man must do human work on the foundation of divine work. After Jesus said all He needed to say and finished His work on earth, He departed man. After this, all people, in working, did so according to the principles expressed in His words, and practiced according to the truths of which He spoke. These were all people working for Jesus. If it had been Jesus alone doing the work, no matter how many words He spoke, people would still not have been able to come into contact with His words, because He was working in divinity and could only speak words of divinity, and He could not have explained things to the point where ordinary people could understand His words. And so He had to have the apostles and prophets who came after Him supplement His work. This is the principle of how God incarnate does His work—using the incarnate flesh to speak and to work so as to complete the work of divinity, and then using a few, or perhaps more, people after God’s own heart to supplement His work. That is, God uses people after His heart to do the work of shepherding and watering in humanity so that all people may attain the truth. Continue reading

Daily Devotionals | The Most Wonderful Blessing

God’s Blessings, Almighty God, the Holy Spirit, God’s words, church,

The drama The Most Wonderful Blessing is the story of a preacher in a house church. He believed that just by giving up his home and his job, and working and preaching the gospel he could gain God’s blessing. After accepting Almighty God’s work of the last days he continued on as usual, and as a leader in the church focused only on working hard while neglecting to put God’s words into practice. He often relied on his own corrupt disposition in his affairs. God loathed this, and he lost the work of the Holy Spirit. After losing his position as a leader, for a time he was negative and resistant to God, but the judgment of God’s words awoke him. He realized that God’s most wonderful blessing for mankind is His judgment and chastisement.

You Should Know That the Practical God Is God Himself

God’s will, God’s words, God’s work , in the flesh, the Holy Spirit,

    What should you know about the practical God? The Spirit, the Person, and the Word make up the practical God Himself, and this is the true meaning of the practical God Himself. If you only know the Person—if you know His habits and personality—but do not know the work of the Spirit, or what the Spirit does in the flesh, and if you only pay attention to the Spirit, and the Word, and only pray before the Spirit, unknowing of the work of God’s Spirit in the practical God, then this yet proves that you do not know the practical God. Knowledge of the practical God includes knowing and experiencing His words, and grasping the rules and principles of the work of the Holy Spirit, and how the Spirit of God works in the flesh. So, too, does it include knowing that every action of God in the flesh is governed by the Spirit, and that the words He speaks are the direct expression of the Spirit. Thus, if you wish to know the practical God, you must primarily know how God works in humanity and in divinity; this, in turn, concerns the expressions of the Spirit, which all people engage with.

God’s word | How to Know Reality

How to Know Reality

    God is a practical God: All of His work is practical, all of the words He speaks are practical, and all of the truths He expresses are practical. Everything that is not His words is vacuous, non-existent, and unsound. Today, the Holy Spirit is to guide people into the words of God. If people are to pursue entry into reality, then they must seek reality, and know reality, after which they must experience reality, and live out reality. The more that people know reality, the more they are able to tell whether the words of others are real; the more people know reality, the fewer conceptions they have; the more people experience reality, the more they know the deeds of the God of reality, and the easier it is for them to break free from their corrupt, satanic dispositions; the more reality people have, the more they know God, and the more they detest the flesh and love the truth; and the more reality people have, the closer they come to the standards of God’s requirements. People who are gained by God are those who are possessed of reality, who know reality, and who have come to know God’s real deeds through experiencing reality. The more actually you cooperate with God and discipline your body, the more you will acquire the work of the Holy Spirit, the more you will gain reality, and the more you will be enlightened by God—and thus the greater your knowledge of God’s real deeds. If you are able to live in the present light of the Holy Spirit, the present path to practice will become clearer to you, and you will be more able to separate yourself from the religious conceptions and old practices of the past. Today reality is the focus: The more reality people have, the clearer their knowledge of the truth, and the greater their understanding of God’s will. Reality can overcome all letters and doctrines, it can overcome all theory and expertise, and the more reality people focus on, the more they truly love God, and hunger and thirst for His words. If you always focus on reality, your life philosophy, religious conceptions, and natural character will naturally be expunged following the work of God. Those who do not pursue reality, and have no knowledge of reality, are likely to pursue that which is supernatural, and they will be easily tricked. The Holy Spirit has no means of working in such people, and so they feel vacant, and that their lives have no meaning. Continue reading

Clip “Perilous Is the Road to the Heavenly Kingdom” (6) – How Does God Use Satan to Do Service?

God says, “In My plan, Satan has ever snapped at the heels of every step, and, as the foil of My wisdom, has always tried to find ways and means to disrupt My original plan. But could I succumb to its deceitful schemes? All in heaven and on earth serves Me—could the deceitful schemes of Satan be any different? This is precisely the intersection of My wisdom, it is precisely that which is wondrous about My deeds, and it is the principle by which My entire management plan is carried out” (The Word Appears in the Flesh). How does God’s work of the last days make use of the Chinese Communist Party and the antichrist forces in the religious world to do service for making people perfect into overcomers? Why is it said that God’s wisdom is exercised based on the crafty schemes of Satan? What will be the final outcome of the Chinese Communist Party and the antichrist forces in the religious world that have consistently hated the truth, and wildly resisted God? We invite you to watch this short video.
