11 God Will Restore the Former State of Creation
1. As His voice deepens in intensity, God is also observing the state of the universe. Through God’s words, the myriad things of creation are all made new. Heaven changes, and earth too changes. Humanity is exposed in their original form and, slowly, each according to their kind, men find their way unawares back into the bosom of their families. At this, God will be greatly pleased. God is free from disruption, and His great work becomes complete, all unawares, the myriad things of creation are transformed, all unawares.
2. When God created the world, He fashioned all things according to their kind, making everything with a visible form gather together with its kind. As the end of His management plan draws near, God will restore the former state of creation, God will restore everything to the way it originally was, profoundly changing everything, so that everything will return into the bosom of His plan. The time has come! The last stage in God’s plan is about to be accomplished. Ah, unclean old world! You shall surely fall down under God’s words! You shall surely be reduced to nothingness by God’s plan! Ah, the myriad things of creation! You will all gain new life within God’s words, you now have a Sovereign Lord! Ah, pure and unblemished new world! You shall surely revive within God’s glory! Ah, Mount Zion! Be silent no more. God has returned in triumph! From the midst of creation, God scrutinizes the whole earth, scrutinizes the whole earth. On earth, mankind has begun a new life, has won new hope.
3. Ah, God’s people! How can you not come back to life within God’s light? How can you not jump for joy under God’s guidance? The lands are shouting in jubilation, the waters are cacophonous with gleeful laughter! The resurrected Israel! How can you not feel pride on account of God’s predestination? Who has wept? Who has wailed? The Israel of old has ceased to be, and today’s Israel has risen up, erect and towering, in the world, has stood up in the hearts of all humanity. Today’s Israel shall surely attain the source of existence through God’s people! Hateful Egypt! Surely you do not still stand against God? How can you take advantage of God’s mercy and try to escape God’s chastisement? How can you not exist within God’s chastisement? All those that God loves will surely live for eternity, and all those who stand against God will surely be chastised by God for eternity. For God is a jealous God, He will not lightly spare men for all that they have done. God will watch over the whole earth, and, appearing in the East of the world with righteousness, majesty, wrath, and chastisement, God will reveal Himself to the myriad hosts of humanity! God will reveal Himself to the myriad hosts of humanity!
