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 Word of God | “Three Admonitions” | How to Be a Loyal Servant of God

The Word of God | “Three Admonitions” | How to Be a Loyal Servant of God

Almighty God says, “As a believer in God, you should be loyal to none other than Him in all things and be able to conform with His will in all things. Nevertheless, although everyone understands this doctrine, these truths that are most apparent and basic, as far as man is concerned, cannot fully be seen in him, thanks to his sundry afflictions, such as ignorance, absurdity, and corruption. Therefore, before deciding upon your end, I ought first to tell you a few things, which are of the utmost importance to you. … In your lives I see much that you do that is irrelevant to the truth, and so I am expressly asking you to become servants of the truth and not be enslaved by wickedness and ugliness. Do not trample on the truth or defile any corner of the house of God. This is My admonition to you.”

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.

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.

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 Word of God | The Return of the Lord | “The Appearance of God Has Brought a New Age” (Excerpt 1)

The Word of God | The Return of the Lord | “The Appearance of God Has Brought a New Age” (Excerpt 1)

Almighty God says, “For this reason, since we are searching for the footprints of God, it behooves us to search for God’s will, for the words of God, for His utterances—because wherever there are new words spoken by God, the voice of God is there, and wherever there are the footsteps of God, God’s deeds are there. Wherever there is the expression of God, there God appears, and wherever God appears, there the truth, the way, and the life exist. … If you desire to witness the appearance of God, to follow God’s footsteps, then you must first walk away from your own conceptions. You must not demand that God do this or that, much less should you place Him within your own confines and limit Him to your own conceptions. Instead, you should ask how you are to seek God’s footprints, how you are to accept God’s appearance, and how you are to submit to the new work of God; this is what man should do. Since man is not the truth, and is not possessed of the truth, he should seek, accept, and obey” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
