The Hymn of God’s Word “People Have No Knowledge of God’s Work”

People Have No Knowledge of God’s Work

1. 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, have no knowledge of God’s work, much less of His, His intention today, today.

2. 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 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, 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.
