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 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 which Satan lives in and is clothed with.
2. People do not in the least believe in God’s existence, nor do they welcome God’s 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 God. 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 God’s intention today. God will be honest with all of you—when the day comes, the suffering of anyone who worships God 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 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.
