115 How Could Man’s Thoughts Escape the Searching of God’s Eyes
1. Your faith is very beautiful; you say that you are willing to dedicate your life to God’s work, to do anything and everything for it, but your disposition has not changed much. There have only been arrogant words, and your actual actions are very wretched. It seems that one’s tongue and lips are in heaven but one’s legs are far away on earth, so his words and deeds and his reputation are still in terrible condition. Your reputation has been destroyed, your bearing is degrading, your way of speaking is lowly, your life is despicable, and even all of your humanity is lowly.
2. You are narrow-minded toward people and you haggle over every little thing. You quarrel over your own reputation and status, even to the point that you’re willing to descend into hell, into the lake of fire. Your current words and deeds are enough that God can determine that you are sinful. Your attitude toward God’s work is enough for Him to determine that you are unrighteous ones, and all of your dispositions are enough to say that you are filthy souls that are full of abominations. Your manifestations and what you reveal are adequate to say that you are people who have drunk enough of the blood of unclean spirits. Your manifestations and what you reveal are adequate to say that you are people who have drunk enough of the blood of unclean spirits. God keeps watch over all people’s hearts with His two eyes because long before He created mankind, He had grasped their hearts within His hands. God long ago saw through man’s heart, so how could the thoughts in man’s heart escape God’s eyes? And how could they be in time to escape the burning of God’s Spirit?
