Gospel Music | Chorus “In the Age of Kingdom, the Word Accomplishes Everything”

In the Age of Kingdom, the Word Accomplishes Everything

Accompaniment: Ah … ah … ah … ah….

1. In the Age of Kingdom, God uses the word to usher in a new age, usher in a new age, to change the means of His work, and to do the work for the entire age. This is the principle by which God works in the Age of the Word. He became flesh to speak from different perspectives, enabling man to truly see God, who is the Word appearing in the flesh, and His wisdom and wonder. Such work is done to better achieve the goals of conquering man, perfecting man, and eliminating man.This is the true meaning, meaning of using the word to work in the Age of the Word.

2. Through the word, man comes to know the work of God, the disposition of God, the essence of man, and what man ought to enter into. Through the word, all, all the work God wishes to do in the Age of the Word is accomplished. Through the word, man is revealed, eliminated, and tried. Man has seen the word, heard the word, and become aware of the existence of the word. As a result, man believes in the existence of God; man believes the almightiness and wisdom of God, as well as God’s heart of love for man and His desire to save man, desire to save man. Though “the word” is simple and ordinary, the word from the mouth of God become flesh shakes the heavens and earth; His word transforms the heart of man, the notions and the old disposition of man, and the old appearance of the entire world.

3. Through the ages, only the God of this day works in such a manner, works in such a manner,and only He speaks and saves man, saves man thus. Thereafter, man lives under the guidance of the word, shepherded and supplied by the word; they live in the world of the word, live within the curses and blessings of God’s word, and even more live under the judgment and chastisement of the word. These words and works are all for the sake of man’s salvation, achieving God’s will, and changing the original appearance of the world of old creation, changing the original appearance of the world of old creation. God created the world with the word, leads men throughout the universe with the word, conquers and saves them with the word. Finally, He shall use the word to bring the entire world of old to an end. Only then is the management plan wholly complete, ah … ah … is the management plan wholly complete.

The Church of Almighty God | Job’s Perfectness and Uprightness and Fearing God and Shunning Evil Are Seen in His Daily Life

About Job Himself

After learning about the whole course of Job’s experiencing the trials, most people, I believe, begin to have interest in the information about Job himself, and are especially concerned about the “secret” of how Job received God’s approval. Now let’s talk about Job himself here!

Job’s Perfectness and Uprightness and His Fearing God and Shunning Evil Are Seen in His Daily Life

To talk about Job himself, let’s start from the evaluation of Job from God’s mouth “that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and shunned evil.”

First, let’s learn about Job’s perfectness and uprightness.

How do you understand the “perfectness and uprightness” spoken of here? You think Job was so flawless and so upright, don’t you? Of course, this is the literal interpretation and understanding. If we want to truly know about Job himself, we cannot divorce it from the real life. If we only focus on the letters, books, and doctrines, we cannot find any answer. Let’s first look at how Job lived in his daily life, that is, look at what his usual behavior in his life was, and through it know about Job’s living principles and his goal of life and also know about the quality of Job’s humanity and his pursuit. Now, let’s see the last word in Job 1:3, “so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.” This word means that Job had a very high position and status at that time. Here it does not tell that Job was the greatest of all the men of the east because he had great possessions or because he “was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and shunned evil.” Anyway, Job had a favored position and status in people’s eyes. This is the first impression people had about Job in the Bible: Job was a perfect man and one that “feared God and shunned evil”; he had large wealth and also a respectable position. As to a normal man who had such living environment and conditions, his daily diet, the quality of his life, and every aspect of his private life attracted the attention of most people. So, we must continue to read the following scriptures in the Bible: And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. (Job 1:4-5) This passage of scripture records two things: The first is that Job’s sons and daughters often feasted and ate and drank together, and the second is that Job often offered burnt offerings, because he was often worried for his sons and daughters, afraid that they might have sinned and cursed God in their hearts. These two things are the accounts of different lives of two kinds of people. One is about the kind of people like Job’s sons and daughters. They often feasted and lived a luxurious life because of their rich life. They indulged in the life of eating and drinking their fill and enjoyed a life of superior quality brought by abundant material things. Living such a life, they often sinned and offended God unavoidably. But they did not sanctify themselves, nor did they offer burnt offerings for that. It can be seen that these people did not have a place for God in their hearts and that they did not contemplate God’s grace or fear offending God, much less fear cursing God in their hearts. Of course, the details about Job’s sons and daughters are not what we are concerned about. The focus of our talk is what Job did when he encountered these things, which is the other thing recorded in this passage of scripture. This thing is involved with the substance of Job’s humanity and his daily life. The scriptures record that when Job’s sons and daughters feasted, Job did not participate in it, and only his sons and daughters often ate and drank together. That is to say, Job neither feasted nor was merry with his sons and daughters, indulging in extravagant eating and drinking. Although he was rich and had all kinds of possessions and many servants, his life was not luxurious, and he did not, because of his being rich, indulge in a superior living environment, hanker after fleshly enjoyment, or forget to offer burnt offerings, much less gradually depart from God in his heart. It can be seen that Job was discreet in his life. He did not become greedy or love enjoyment or pay much attention to the quality of his life because of God’s blessing to him. Moreover, he was humble in doing things, modest in conducting himself, and careful and cautious before God, often contemplated God’s graces and blessings, and always had a heart of fearing God. In his daily life, he often rose up early in the morning and offered burnt offerings for his sons and daughters. This means that Job not only feared God himself but also hoped that his sons and daughters could fear God like him and would not commit offense against God. That is, rich material things did not occupy Job’s heart or take the place of God in his heart, and all that he did in his daily life, whether for his sons and daughters or for himself, had to do with “fearing God and shunning evil.” His fear of Jehovah God was not just on his lips, but was put into practice and manifested in every bit of his daily life. Such actual manifestations of Job show us Job’s honesty and Job’s substance of loving justice and positive things. He often “sent and sanctified them,” and this means that he did not agree with or approve their actions but loathed and condemned them in his heart. He was sure that the actions of his sons and daughters were displeasing to Jehovah God, so he often asked them to confess their sins before Jehovah God. This action of Job shows us another aspect of his humanity; that is, he never walked with those who often sinned and offended God but stayed away from them and shunned them. Although they were his sons and daughters, he did not abandon his principle in conducting himself because of his blood relationship with them or tolerate their sins because of affection, but exhorted them to confess their sins to be tolerated by Jehovah God, and he also warned them not to forsake God because of hankering after enjoyment. Job’s principles in treating people are inseparable from his principle of fearing God and shunning evil. He loved what God accepted, hated what God loathed, loved those who feared God in their hearts, and hated those who did evil and did things that offended God. His love and hatred were manifested in his daily life. This is Job’s uprightness God saw with his eyes. Of course, this is also the expression and living out of Job’s real humanity in dealing with people in his daily life which we need to know about.

Music of Heart | Chinese Chorus “The Significance of God’s Managing Mankind”

The Significance of God’s Managing Mankind

1. The management of God is in order to gain a group of people who worship God and submit to Him. This mankind has been corrupted by Satan, has been corrupted by Satan, but no longer sees Satan as his father; he recognizes the ugly face of Satan, and rejects it, and comes before God to accept His chastisement and judgment. He knows what is ugly, and how it contrasts with that which is holy, and he recognizes the greatness of God and the evil of Satan.

2. A mankind such as this will no longer, will no longer work for Satan, or worship Satan, or enshrine Satan. That’s because they are a group of people that have truly been gained by God, have truly been gained by God. This is the significance of God’s managing, God’s managing mankind. That’s because they are a group of people gained by God. This is the significance of God’s managing mankind.

3. During the work of God’s management of this time, during the work of God’s management of this time, mankind is the object of Satan’s corruption, and is the object of God’s salvation, as well as the product God and Satan fight for, as well as the product God and Satan fight for. At the same time as conducting His work, God gradually recovers, recovers man from the hands of Satan, from the hands of Satan, and so man comes ever closer to God, man comes ever closer to God….

Real Life | Hymn of God’s Word “The Sorrow of Corrupt Mankind”

The Sorrow of Corrupt Mankind

1. Man walked through the ages with God, yet man knows not that God rules the fate of all things and living beings or how God orchestrates and directs all things. This is something that has eluded man since time immemorial to the present day. As for the reason why, it is not because the ways of God are too elusive, or the plan of God has yet to be realized, but because the heart and spirit of man are too distant from God. Therefore, even as man “follows God,” he unknowingly remains in the service of Satan.

2. None actively seek out the footsteps or appearing of God, appearing of God, and none wish to exist in the care and keeping of God. Rather, they are willing to rely on the corrosion of Satan and the evil one to adapt to this world and to the rules of life the wicked mankind follows. At this point, the heart and spirit of man are sacrificed to Satan and become its sustenance. Moreover, the human heart and spirit become a place in which Satan can reside and a playground for it.

3. In this way, man unknowingly loses his understanding of the principles of being human, the principles of being human, and of the worth and purpose of human existence. The laws from God and the covenant between God and man gradually fade away in man’s heart until man no longer seeks or pays heed to God, no longer seeks or pays heed to God. As time passes, man no longer understands why God created man, nor does he understand the words that come from the mouth of God or realize all that is from God. Man begins to resist the laws and decrees from God; the heart and spirit of man, the heart and spirit of man become deadened. … God loses the man of His original creation, and man loses the root of his beginning. This is the sorrow of this mankind. This is the sorrow of this mankind. This is the sorrow of this mankind.
