Man’s True Condition of Being Corrupted by Satan

Man’s True Condition of Being Corrupted by Satan

1. For so many years, the thought man lives by has corrupted man’s heart, man’s heart. So man becomes crafty, cowardly, and base. Man has no perseverance or resolution, and is greedy and frail and willful. He does not have the will to transcend himself at all, much less have any courage to break away from the bondage of the influence of darkness.

2. Man has a depraved mind and leads a depraved life. Man’s viewpoint of believing in God is still awful, and it is even intolerable to the ear, intolerable to the ear once it is spoken of. All men are cowardly, powerless, base, and fragile. They do not feel loathing for the force of darkness, and do not love the light and the truth, but they do their possible to drive them out.

Life Goal | Hymn of God’s Word “Peter Sought to Live Out the Image of One Who Loves God”

Peter Sought to Live Out the Image of One Who Loves God

Peter sought to live out the image of one who loves God, to be someone who obeyed God, to be someone who obeyed God, to be someone who accepted dealing and pruning, accepted dealing and pruning, and to be someone who fulfilled his duty as a creature of God. He was able to devote himself to God, to put the entirety of himself in the hands of God, and obey Him until death. That was what he resolved to do and, furthermore, that was what he achieved. This is the fundamental reason why finally his end was different to that of Paul. He was able to devote himself to God, to put the entirety of himself in the hands of God, and obey Him until death.

Salvation Meaning | Hymn “How Far Are Man’s Deed and Thought from God’s Requirement”

How Far Are Man’s Deed and Thought from God’s Requirement

1. No matter what you think, what God wants to say and what God wants to do are to achieve the result on you that you will better understand, understand God’s will and better understand what God is thinking, what God wants to accomplish, what kind of person God likes, what God loathes, what God hates, what kind of person God wants to gain, and what kind of person is the object of God’s detestation and rejection, detestation and rejection and that you will know clearly and distinctly how far what every one of you does and thinks is from the standard required by God, is from the standard required by God.

2. For God knows that these things are what you lack the most, who have believed for so long and heard so many messages. Although you have written down all the truths in your notebooks and borne in mind and heart the things you regard as very important, and intend to bring them out at the time you need to practice them, so as to satisfy God by them, meet your emergency needs by them, help yourselves go through each of your present difficulties by them, or let them accompany your life.

3. No matter what you do, if you are only doing it, this is not very important. What is very important? It is that when you are doing it, you should know very clearly, very clearly whether what you are doing and what you are practicing are what God wants, and whether your deed, your thought, and your desired result and desired goal satisfy God’s heart’s desire, meet God’s requirement, and are approved by God. These are very important.

Judgment Day | Hymn of God’s Word “Mankind Is Already not What God Intended”

Mankind Is Already not What God Intended

Accompaniment: Ah … ah … ah….

1. Mankind has developed through tens of thousands of years of history to get where they are today. However, the mankind of God’s original creation has long ago sunk into degeneracy. They are already not, are already not what God intended, and thus people, the way God sees them, are already undeserving of the name mankind. They are rather the scum of mankind, looted by Satan, and the rotten walking corpses Satan lives in and is clothed with.

2. People do not in the least believe in God’s existence, nor do they welcome His arrival. “Mankind” only begrudgingly responds to God’s requests, temporarily agrees with them, and does not sincerely share in life’s joys and sorrows with Him. As people see God as inscrutable, they begrudgingly pretend to smile at Him, betraying their manner of coddling up to power. This is because people have no knowledge of God’s work, much less of His intention today. God will be honest with all of you— when the day comes, the suffering of anyone who worships Him will be easier to bear than yours. The degree of your faith, faith in God does not, in actuality, exceed that of Job— and even the faith of the Jewish Pharisees surpasses yours— so in the impending days of fire, you will suffer more seriously than the Pharisees when rebuked by Jesus, more seriously than the 250 leaders that had resisted Moses, and more seriously than Sodom under the scorching flames of its destruction.
