Know God | Christ’s Word “God Himself, the Unique (III) God’s Authority (2)” (Part Six)

4. Come under the Creator’s dominion and face death calmly

At the moment when a person is born, one lonely soul begins its experience of life on earth, its experience of the Creator’s authority which the Creator has arranged for it. Needless to say, for the person, the soul, this is an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge of the Creator’s sovereignty, to come to know His authority and to experience it personally. People live their lives under the laws of fate laid out for them by the Creator, and for any rational person with a conscience, coming to terms with the Creator’s sovereignty and recognizing His authority over the course of their several decades on earth is not a difficult thing to do. Therefore it should be very easy for every person to recognize, through his or her own life experiences over the several decades, that all human fates are predestined, and to grasp or to sum up what it means to be alive. At the same time that one embraces these life lessons, one will gradually come to understand where life comes from, to grasp what the heart truly needs, what will lead one to the true path of life, what the mission and goal of a human life ought to be; and one will gradually recognize that if one does not worship the Creator, if one does not come under His dominion, then when one confronts death—when a soul is about to face the Creator once more—one’s heart will be filled with boundless dread and unease. If a person has existed in the world for a handful of decades and yet not come to know where human life comes from, not yet recognized in whose palm human fate rests, then it is no wonder that he or she will not be able to face death calmly. A person who has gained the knowledge of the Creator’s sovereignty after experiencing several decades of life, is a person with a correct appreciation for the meaning and value of life; a person with a deep knowledge of life’s purpose, with real experience and understanding of the Creator’s sovereignty; and even more, a person who is able to submit to the Creator’s authority. Such a person understands the meaning of God’s creation of mankind, understands that man should worship the Creator, that everything man possesses comes from the Creator and will return to Him some day not far in the future; such a person understands that the Creator arranges man’s birth and has sovereignty over man’s death, and that both life and death are predestined by the Creator’s authority. So, when one truly grasps these things, one will naturally be able to face death calmly, to lay aside all of one’s worldly possessions calmly, accept and submit happily to all that follows, and welcome the last life-juncture arranged by the Creator rather than blindly dread it and struggle against it. If one views life as an opportunity to experience the Creator’s sovereignty and come to know His authority, if one sees one’s life as a rare chance to perform one’s duty as a created human being and to fulfill one’s mission, then one will necessarily have the correct outlook on life, will live a life blessed and guided by the Creator, will walk in the light of the Creator, know the Creator’s sovereignty, come under His dominion, become a witness to His miraculous deeds and to His authority. Needless to say, such a person will necessarily be loved and accepted by the Creator, and only such a person can hold a calm attitude toward death, can joyfully welcome life’s final juncture. Job obviously held this kind of attitude toward death; he was in a position to happily accept the final juncture of life, and having brought his life’s journey to a smooth conclusion, having completed his mission in life, he returned to the Creator’s side.

Death: The Sixth Juncture

After so much hustle and bustle, so many frustrations and disappointments, after so many joys and sorrows and ups and downs, after so many unforgettable years, after watching the seasons turn time and again, one passes the important milestones in life without notice, and all in a flash one finds oneself in one’s waning years. The marks of time are stamped all over one’s body: One can no longer stand erect, a head of dark hair turns white, bright, lucid eyes grow dim and cloud over, and smooth, supple skin becomes wrinkled and spotted. One’s hearing weakens, one’s teeth loosen and fall out, one’s reactions become delayed, one’s movements slow…. At this point, one has completely bid farewell to the passionate years of one’s youth and entered the twilight of one’s life: old age. Next, one will face death, the last juncture in a human life.

The Fate of Humanity and the Fate of the Universe Are Inseparable from the Creator’s Sovereignty
Understanding God’s Authority from the Macro- and Micro-Perspectives

Today we will continue our fellowship about the topic of “God Himself, the Unique.” We have already had two fellowships on this subject, the first concerning God’s authority, and the second concerning God’s righteous disposition. After listening to these two fellowships, have you gained a new understanding of God’s identity, status, and substance? Have these insights helped you achieve a more substantive knowledge and certainty of the truth of God’s existence? Today I plan to expand upon the topic of “God’s authority.”

Voice of God | Hymn of God’s Word “Are You One in the Stream of the Holy Spirit”

Are You One in the Stream of the Holy Spirit

1. If you cannot keep up with the present light, your relationship with God will become distant or even be cut off, and thus you will not have, will not have a normal spiritual living. A normal relationship with God is built upon accepting God’s present word. Do you have a normal spiritual living? Do you have a normal relationship with God? Are you one who keeps up with the working of the Holy Spirit?

2. Those who can keep up with the present light of the Holy Spirit, touch God’s will in God’s word, and enter into, enter into God’s word are ones who keep up with the stream of the Holy Spirit. If you fail to keep up with the stream of the Holy Spirit, you are surely a person who does not pursue the truth. The Holy Spirit has no opportunity to work, work on a person who has no desire to strive forward. So his zeal can never be stirred up and he is always passive.

3. Now, are you keeping up with the stream of the Holy Spirit? Are you in the stream of the Holy Spirit? Have you come out of your passive state, your passive state? All those who believe in, believe in God’s word, have God’s work as their foundation, and keep up with the present light of the Holy Spirit are the ones in the stream of the Holy Spirit. If you believe that God’s word is absolutely true and believe whatever God says, you are a person who pursues to enter into, pursues to enter into God’s work. In this way, you will satisfy God’s heart’s desire.

Trust in God | Hymn of God’s Word “What God Wants Is Man’s True Heart”

What God Wants Is Man’s True Heart

In the time of today, people never treasure God, or have a place for God in their heart, have a place for God in their heart. Could people love God with a true heart in the days of suffering in the future? People’s righteousness is still something intangible that cannot be seen or touched. What God wants is man’s heart, because in man the “heart” is most precious. Is what God does unworthy, unworthy to gain people’s heart in return? Why do people not give their heart to God? Why do they always hold their heart in their bosom closely, not willing to drop it? Could their heart keep their whole life peaceful and happy? When God makes requirements of people, why do they always pick up a handful of dust from the ground and cast it upon God? Woo… is this people’s deceitful trick?

Love of God | Hymn of God’s Word “What God Wants Is Men’s Single Love”

What God Wants Is Men’s Single Love

What God wants is men’s single love. No one knows God, and although they pursue to know God, they do not commit the true and earnest heart to God. God does not force anything from men. If they give God “faithfulness,” God will readily take it, readily take it. If they do not trust God and are unwilling to offer anything to God, then God will not feel worry on that account, but God will just dispose of them another way and give them a proper destination. When the thunder roars in the sky, men will be downed by it. When the mountains split, men will be buried under them. When the beasts are hungry, men will be devoured by them. When the seawater rises in swells, men will be swamped by it. When men fight against one another in the world, they will all bring destruction on themselves, bring destruction on themselves through the disasters from among men.
